How to Survive Christmas

Merry Christmas! Or maybe that is wishful thinking.  It doesn’t matter. Either way, it can be meaningful.  Here is my holiday reflection: To the Grabbing of Stars: How to Survive Christmas 

“If we are to be companions with the ‘great companion,’  then we must be companions with the darkness, too, not only through compassion for others, but also for ourselves.  Self-compassion means accepting the truly difficult emotions hanging out in the shadows, yet begging to be seen and heard and accepted . . .”
