fbpx How Do I Handle Not Being Able To Make It Home for the Holidays?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on December 14, 2021
Dear Dr. Michelle:

The holidays are really tough for me. I live far away from my family and this will be the second year in a row I am not able to make it back to see them. I can feel myself starting to push away from my family just to protect myself from feeling left out. I’m sad and I seem to cry at the drop of a hat. What do I do?

Sincerely,

Jean
