I think I see too much news there and most of it is definitely not positive. Brain overload the last few weeks I believe.
Yes this time of yr can be stressful but really if it's that stressful to make you act a fool then I say step away and just give up your participation in the holiday festivities. The season is about love, kindness, happiness, peace, feeling appreciative, thankful, compassionate, humble and all good things mankind should remember and if that is no longer apart of Christmas then a person really should consider skipping it all together. I can't feel too much pity or compassion for someone that just wants to spread their misery with others when it should be a time we are sharing a smile and a kind word.
I think I just need a timeout ... ;)
