With the holiday season fast upon us, signs of upcoming festivities are all around. Stores have put up Christmas decorations. Towns have regaled their main streets with candy canes and wreaths. People are wishing one another “Merry Christmas! or “Happy Holidays”. 

But for many of you listening, the holidays are anything but happy. On the contrary, the holidays are extremely painful. For you, the holiday season reminds you of broken relationships, broken dreams, and broken families.  For still others, the holidays remind you of the loss of a loved one—a spouse, a child, a friend.

For many of us, the holidays remind us of what could have been.

If you are suffering from emotional pain this holiday season, let me offer you some suggestions to help alleviate your pain.
