Family Issues during The Holidays!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! I know many people get depressed during the holidays because they have fallen out with their family. I’m sure there are other reasons but for many the loneliness of not being around family and friends is a big one.

In this time and space I want to say to those people what I said to myself years ago! RELEASE THE PEEVES AND DROP THE EXPECTATIONS!

This has helped me so much because I no longer try to control others with “Pet Peeves” and expectations. I love my family and friends for who they are. The only person I can control is me. I freed myself from watching others and trying to make others adjust themselves to me. I make the adjustment by understanding that everyone is doing the best they can with what they know and have at that moment. Others do what they do for their reason. I can only see with compassion and understanding. And as soon as I can’t see things this way; I will either go to a quiet room and do a quick meditation or go for a drive “to get something from the store”.

Either way let’s control our own thoughts and emotions and learn to see with compassion and understanding! In this, you will sometimes feel sorry for that person who is saying hateful things to you because you know that they feel horrible inside. That’s why they try to pass it on to others. Don’t let them…. You just walk in compassion and understanding! Do the best with what you have!

Holiday Affirmations: Everyday is a day of thanksgiving! I love myself. I love my family! I am loving and lovable! I release the need to control others and choose to see with compassion and understanding. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY MIND. ALL IS WELL IN MY LIFE. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE,
