Every holiday season many people find themselves feeling stressed and overwhelmed. What should be a season of celebration and giving can turn to resentment and isolation. From unresolved family issues to political discord to high expectations about the perfect tree to financial concerns about spending on gifts - we all face unique challenges.
Friends, leaders and coworkers can make a positive impact by being aware of and sensitive to the emotional challenges people face during the holidays. My encouragement is to embody patience and peace and appreciate the goodness in one another.
