As we enter into festive times with our loved ones and friends let's remember that not everyone has family and friends to connect with. We often take for granted that their is someone to go home too or share a meal with together.

Many people are grieving at this time of year due to loss of a loved one,  financial hardship, or just the weather can cause people to feel down, isolated, and depressed.  Pride and Fear are two main factors that keep us stuck and bound in isolation and depression. We will discuss ways to get out of a "funk" and how to deal with loneliness during this season and  for a lifetime.

Let's talk about what it means to be and the difference between being Lonely, Alone, and Loneliness.

1. Are you feeling overwhelmed from too many commitments, financial hardships, or unrealistic expectations?
2.Are you experiencing frequent headaches, excessive drinking or overeating, or insomnia?
3.Do you find yourself being isolated from friends or co-workers, crying or feeling "down" during this time of the year?
4. Do you feel emotionally isolated and you have family and friends around?
5. Do you dread being alone at this time of the year?
