Like many of you I will be reunited with relatives during the holiday season. This can be both a joyous occasion as well as a challenging time for many. People that we know and love may be a source of support. Their support, however, may include advice and expectations for our well-being that are in contrast with our plans. It’s usually helpful to acknowledge their perspectives, but also to balance time between family expectations and personal needs. This holiday season I have plans to attend several family events including a dinner with visiting relatives. I also plan to make time to see a Broadway show, catch up on some reading and hope to find time to do absolutely nothing!
