Patricia Amorim – Surviving The Holiday Season Without Your Children – Issue 1
I’m sure you’re probably rolling your eyes and saying, “Whatever. That’s easier said than done. I do not want to celebrate with anyone else…” Well, I understand. I understand more than you think because that used to be me. Feeling hurt and wondering how life got you to this point. This was not how everything was supposed to turn out. I get it. This was definitely not in the plans. But here we are. Now, what do we do about it? If there was a way for your kids to look at you through some magic lens, would you want them to see you looking defeated and buried in a pity party? I’m sure you wouldn’t. Not during the holidays or any day for that matter. It is far from easy to push away those feelings but the worst thing that you can do is suffer alone!
