Christmas is almost here.
The anxiety is real, y’all.
For many reasons, anxiety with hosting, anxiety with trauma, anxiety with family.
The holidays are supposed to be “the most wonderful time of year” but for a lot of people this time of year is really hard.
When you’re little Christmas is such a magical day, a magical season, but as an adult that magic goes away…. From stress, from trauma, from family, from life. And that’s okay…. Don’t beat yourself up if you aren’t feeling “in the spirit” this year. There’s not a certain way you have to feel or act, you have the right to feel any emotion.
This holiday season for me has been more stressful than anything. But, admits the hectics I’ve been spending some time with myself, with my past, healing. Healing that little girl from Christmas all those years ago. I’d like to think she’d be proud of where I am now. Not everyday is a good one, but I keep on trying and that’s what’s most important.
My goal is to one day fully heal that little girl and I know I can do it with time and work.
Holidays can bring up a lot of shit, good bad and ugly. But, don’t let anyone else’s drama impact your day. Your family’s issues are not yours(speaking to myself)🙃
Let’s end this year strong, babes. We got this.
