Holiday addendum

I just found a wonderful essay titled “Sanity and Sobriety in the Holiday Season.” I loved the questions he suggests I ask myself:

  • Am I feeling isolated, lonely, sad, or angry?
  • Am I keeping any secrets or telling any lies?
  • Do I have idealized (and likely unrealistic) expectations for family and holiday gatherings?
  • Am I feeling impulsive or obsessive?

Read the essay for more. (And thanks to my email feed from for the link.)
