Some People Experience Sadness

Everyone is not perpetually comfortable and fortunate enough to have family and friends to celebrate with during the festivities during the holiday season. There are not always family members dancing around to the music, nor family laughing and enjoying Christmas carols in the winter air. While some are shopping for just the right presents, baking cakes, and kissing beneath a mistletoe, others are isolated and miserable.

Between the end of the year stressful activities, people over-drinking, family problems, and loss of loved ones; things can get very hectic. Depression can set in and cause life to seem hopeless. Yes, it's a sad thing to think about.

We need to be mindful of the feelings of others. Just because we are jolly, doesn't mean someone else is not lonely or grieving the loss of a loved one.

Business Associates And Friends May Be Lonely

Have you ever seen a business associate that moved to town for a job opportunity, but don't have the time or finances to travel back home? Looking at others with their family can cause them to not be in a jolly mood. I encourage you to speak joy and happiness into the life of anyone you know like that this holiday season.

Hunger During The Holidays

It's Sad to say, but some don't even know where their next meal will come from for the holidays or any day. Just because someone looks like they have it together, doesn't mean everything is wonderful in their life.

Help someone cope with depression by 

  • Sharing a meal with them.
  • Spend time talking and laughing with them.
  • Surprise them with a professional hairstyle or spa day to relieve the tension and stress.
  • Be a secret Santa for a less fortunate child.

Learn how to Remove stress and move on with your life because you deserve to be happy. You deserve to have joy and kindness surrounding you.
