The holidays are here. If you find yourself having difficulty coming to terms with the idea that you will be seeing family members that you would rather not see, remind yourself that you have rights. While being respectful, stand up for your rights. Does the outcome outweigh the bad? If you say something, will it be worth it? If you find yourself on the wrong end and make a mistake, remember: While apologies help, compassion will go much farther than an apology ever will.
When speaking to your family members, try to remember to respond rather than to react. If this sounds easier said than done, give us a call.
