In this week’s episode, we continue to discuss what to expect during the holiday season after a loved one’s death and how to help ourselves through the pain and overwhelm.
No matter which holidays we celebrate, Hanukkah, Christmas, New Years, or many others after a loved one has died or was killed, the holidays will feel differently as in previous years.
For those who are dealing with their first holiday season, it can be especially difficult as you don’t know what you might experience.
Trying to feel happy and enjoying the seasons as you did in the past, will be hard for you. It will be like no other holiday season.
The main thing to know is that you don’t have to do all you’ve done in the past.
You can decide on a different path. You can decrease your events and celebrations this year and there is nothing wrong with that.
Your emotional state is different now and you must be sensitive to that and treat yourself with more care.
Whereas you might have handled all the preparation, cooking, baking and hosting, this year it might be better to hand that off to another family member to take the lead. And you simply attend another’s event/s and take the stress off of yourself.
