Holiday Anxieties

Here’s a word from Dawson…

The holidays are upon us. Sometimes during the holidays, you get busy busy busy…relatives are coming over, friends, going here, going there, activities, and church, whatever. And you’re just saying,

“How can I deal with this?”

“How can I get through it?”

Well, to begin with, slow down, you will get through it. Look for the good things, and work on the bad things.

You may be with your family. It may be with all kinds of dysfunction, or so many people in the room it makes you uncomfortable. Try to think about it, talk about it, before it happens. Come up with a plan.

If you have some fear of somebody being with you that you don’t want to be with. Why don’t you talk with somebody about it? Don’t just stuff it, and then all of a sudden have it come along, and there you are…stuck, afraid, confused, frustrated or full of anxiety. Talk it out.

Maybe this holiday season will be the greatest season of your life, but you’re going to have to get proactive.
