REASONS WE AVOID FAMILY DURING THE HOLIDAYS (2023 hits)

In just a few days, we will be celebrating, or should be celebrating, the second most holy day of the year for Christians. The first holiest day of the year is Easter Sunday, the day Christ has risen!

Christmas Day i s the second most holy day of the year as we acknowledge the day Christ is born.

Sadly enough, though, many people will be unhappy or anxious about being around family and friends on Christmas Day. The true reason for the season will be lost to symptoms of depression, anxiety, fear, addictions, arguments, tensions, and a host of negative forces.

Many of us will avoid going around family because of the same o, same o situations of those who cannot seem to hold their liquor and those who seem to always want to pick fights around the dinner table. We will become lost with - "here she goes again .... or why can't he come down to the dinner table?" These types of situations happen in the very best of families and the least of families. Somebody will be curled up in a bed wishing the day disappears as quickly as possible and somebody will be locked inside their bedroom hoping people hurry up through dinner and bounce ...!

Somebody will be pleading with loved ones to just please act right and the list goes on and on. It is important to acknowledge that depression affects millions of people and mental illness affects nearly 4 million people each year. If we use Christmas Day as a mile stone for the year, nearly 4 million people will be hurting this year and their family members will be affected.

We each know somebody who falls into one of those categories including ourselves. There is hope, however, if we face the reality of mental illness. If we understand the recession, we can understand that depression is real. Mental illness, although an ugly word, is real, too.

The hope for the season is the reality that there is help if we swallow our pride and find the courage to begin the healing process for ourselves, our loved ones, and family.
