FYI I Know Some Are Looking Forward To Holidays But For Some It’s A Major Trigger

Ok, guys/gals the holidays are really a toughie for me. I doubt I’m the only one. @ninjastar posted something yesterday and I felt that feeling of volatility bubble up. I doubt that I am the only one. For sanity’s sake, as they near, I may either cling to site or bail. I don’t know how my mind will process these difficult circumstances. I will do my best to avoid those threads. Just thought I’d speak from the heart, and if there is anyone else that feels the same, I’m sending you a hug and a reminder, that if you succumb to the pain and allow your mental illness to kick in, you are letting the perpetrators win. Be strong my friends, as these difficult times come closer! And happy holidays to those who aren’t scarred from head to toe! I’m not seeking anything out of this post. It is what it is.

I’m not American so we don’t have any holidays coming up but I get what you’re saying. I can see how it can be a trigger for some. I’ll be sure to take care with posts around your upcoming holiday.

I know what you mean, @anon98519533. The holidays can be a very hard time for some. I have mixed feelings about them. Part of me enjoys the weather and the feeling of the season but the bigger part of me dreads all the get-togethers and being around people. Hope you find some peace during this trying time of year.
