Are you recently divorced or separated and struggling to put a smile through the holiday season? If yes, then take some advice on how to survive with dignity and common sense stronger than ever!
1. Centre on your negative emotions and feel full and then let them go. You have reason to feel negative emotions drag you down, if it is long anger, betrayal, resentment or bitterness overwhelming pending. Depending on the circumstances of your break, you can even have a sense of abandonment. Take an afternoon or evening to really feel these emotions. Pour yourself a glass of wine or a pizza order, then write whatever you feel. You can start to feel stupid, but eventually it will overflow and you will feel a release. Then drop it in the trash, bury it in snow, or light the fire in the bathtub. . . just get rid of him. Then go right along the edge next.
2. Focus on making positive energy to everyone you meet. Even if you do not feel gay and happy, make a sincere effort every day to bring those feelings to others. Pay the bill coffee for the car behind you when you pass by a coffee shop drive-thru. You can start a new family tradition with children. If you have always decorated the tree yourself, have a mini party with the kids and let them decorate with you. Or, have a snowball fight! Just do something to spread joy and you begin to feel yourself as well. Most importantly, put the joy of Christmas to your children and do not let a daily reminder of divorce or separation. They deserve a Merry Christmas! And this applies whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or any other religion – the rules are the same!
3. Lend a hand to the less fortunate. No matter how your life seems horrible now, there are always others less fortunate. Take a moment of selfless focus on them and feel a certain gratitude for your personal blessing. Go into your closets and donate clothes, towels, sheets and blankets to a local shelter. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Come out and lend a hand.
4. Think of a way to transform your dream into reality. Do something for others and then do something special for yourself. Buy a new outfit that makes you feel hot smoking and confidence to tackle an objective or fitness to improve your body. Whatever you feel you never had time to do it for yourself. . . make your gift to yourself this year.
