In Episode 55, we continue to discuss how best to help our most vulnerable in our lives, our young adults, parents, grandparents and the lonely and alone during the holiday season.
In part I, we concentrated on our children and teens.
Here in part II, we look at the challenges that our young adults encounter, especially those who are now away at college or in another city for a new career.
We also concentrate on the struggles of our parents, grandparents and those in our lives who are alone and lonely.
Holidays can bring about much sadness when there is no one around us and we are grieving a loved one’s death.
Please be kind to others and connect with them either online, by phone or in person at some point so they feel included in your celebrations.
Additional Notes – Some things that will help along this journey to ease the pain:
If you are having an especially difficult time emotionally, I recommend you speak with a specialist at a hotline near you. Here you will find hotlines all around the world. Trained counselors are there to listen, free of charge, to what’s going on with you. Take advantage of their great kindness. Vent with an objective individual. You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!
For parents and teens, there is an amazing resource where you can email or text counselors for help at The Boys Town National Hotline! Outstanding assistance for your children and you.
Visit Brad Yates’ youtube channel will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. His videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward.
Here are some meditation music to help you rest.
You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy from most health food stores, either in person or online. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.
I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.
*To find a homeopathic doctor, visit here or here. Many offer phone consultations if you cannot find one in your area. They work with patients around the globe. You can also research in your area of the world.
