Christmas comes with all sorts of routine and tradition, with expectations and the reality of things that don’t go so well. There is a lot of ‘ought’ and ‘should’ around the holidays.
Simply determine what you can do, and what you can’t do. Then live in this place.
Be intentional and you will find the holidays nice to you.
Treat yourself and others with respect and it’ll come back tenfold.
The concessions you’ll be making, reconcile those up-front in your own heart and spirit.
And if there is pressure towards concessions you simply can’t make, say so and hold your ground.
