Today take time to acknowledge your limitations and accept them without judgment. If your family dynamics are different this year, then the physical demands of the holidays alone may be exhausting enough without the added burden of intense and difficult emotions. Please don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are people in your life who want to help you, but don’t know where to begin. Childcare, errands, carpooling, cleaning, cooking, etc., these are all tasks that can be shared. It isn’t easy, but asking for help can reduce your family’s stress and give others the chance they are hoping for to be of service to your family.
