Holidays can be #happy. At the same time, #holidays can also be unapologetically horrific.
None of us is immune.
We all should be open to understanding that as we journey in this thing called "EARTH LIFE" .... some of us have experiential lenses where since #birth, our lenses got a bit fogged up. Others lenses on how they see themselves may have become fractured or scratched and perhaps even shattered beyond repair.
Some experience a passer-by quote of healing encouragement when they aren't even looking. However we must never forget about what we want to accomplish to be a guide/example of #victory for the person who needs direction towards the #positive path.
Finally, if that person chooses to remain toxic, can't speak for anyone else but I step away, #pray and keep myself encouraged by being around others who are transparent about how life can just flat out kick you in the teeth. (i.e. #KeepingItReal.)
That's my belief that's helped me when others said "Reed it's not going to be all bad all the time...this is just a battle that you can get thru one day at a time." Make sense?
