Resist the pressures of society

Transformation Life Architects - Wednesday, December 19, 2018
Christmas and the holidays can be a time of great joy and connecting with family but it can also be a time of stress, anxiety and depression.

Months before Christmas we are bombarded by advertising that shows the perfect Christmas day, beautiful presents and family interacting happily. In other words society and advertising create a fantasy of how Christmas should be.

When this fantasy does not become true it very soon becomes a nightmare. When the family end up fighting or the Christmas dinner does not come out like it should it leads to stress and anxiety.

Another part of the Christmas fantasy is that people should all be together and show goodwill. There are many people out there who are alone and this Christmas fantasy often makes these people feel even more alone and unsupported,  so over Christmas we see more people with depression and worst of all suicides.

I’m not trying to be a party pooper here but if you don’t want the fantasy of Christmas to become a nightmare be aware what is being fed to you. More importantly be aware of your blessings and be grateful for what you have.

It doesn’t have to be the Christmas that society imposes upon you, it just has to be the Christmas that suits you.

Merry Christmas to one and all.
