Season’s Meetings: Shields Up!

A Christmas wreath and lights surrounding the words "Season's Meeting's".

Season’s Greetings everyone.

I hope you’re all doing well and managing to look after yourselves during these really difficult times.

At this time of year, relationships can be especially tricky and self-care can be a challenge. I’m sharing this post from a few years ago that offers some ideas about how to maintain your boundaries with friends and family at Christmas.

I hope you have a peaceful and restful festive season, and a very Merry Christmas.

With very best wishes

It’s a good old-fashioned Christmas meet-up with family, friends and acquaintances.

So who’s here? There’s your aunt who tries to emotionally manipulate you. There’s that old family friend who always makes inappropriate remarks about your body. Over there’s your cousin who never fails to give you “helpful” diet tips. She’s talking to your mother who’s giving you “that look”.

And there’s you – mindlessly eating mince pies in an attempt to deal with the stress and misery.
