Merry Christmas everyone! A number of years ago I attended Christmas dinner with my family. After reflecting on the visit on my way home it dawned on me, it was the same conversation we had the last holiday dinner, and the same conversation we had the time before that. Over and over again, as if time were standing still. The reality was I was growing and my family was not.
Being around family, especially when you are on a personal growth journey, can be a real issue. This time of year, I am asked so many questions around how do we deal with family since we know it is a major part of the season. These can be stressful times, and I want to get back to the idea of what these family gatherings are about. Today I share some strategies on how to maintain peace going into these situations and how to manage them if they are on the dysfunctional side.
