Not Home for the Holidays
Songs and movies extol it—being with the family at Thanksgiving. But exactly whose family—yours or his? And in whose home—where? Going home for the holidays is not always possible for whatever reason. Since these annual observances take on ritualistic significance, depression can ensue. Concentrate on what you won’t miss. Uncle Fred complaining about the mashed potatoes being cold. The Jell-O salad with carrots and pineapple your mom always makes ‘just for you’—that you never liked! Your sister-in-law asking (again), “Haven’t you put on a little weight?”
