DIP Episode #24: It’s Christmas Again.
Christmas is a magical time for many but for some it is a painful reminder of love ones lost. When you suffer the loss of a loved one, the magic of Christmas might seem more like an emotional burden. Perhaps rather than feeling pain year after year, ask yourself what that person you loved and lost would think of your perspective. If you once shared Christmas with them, then continue to share it even in there physical absence. You get to CHOOSE how you want to feel. Perhaps you celebrate their life and continue the traditions of love and giving to others who also might be suffering. This is what they would’ve wanted. Christmas didn’t steal your loved one. Their journey ended when it was supposed to. Yes sometimes that means at Christmas. Think about getting back in the game and feeling the love of Christmas and your loved one. Then take a deep breath, know that you’ll be OK, and help someone else in need. Merry Christmas.
