Thanksgiving has just ended and the (American) holiday season is getting into full swing. This is typically the time of year when we count our blessings and give thanks for them.
If you're in the midst of a troubled relationship, however, you may be thinking, "What blessings? What do I have to be thankful for?"
If this is how you feel, I've got good news for you. You're human.
It's hard enough dealing with a troubled relationship/marriage, a potential separation, or even divorce in a "normal" week. Throw the holidays on top and you've got a recipe for disaster!
Why is it so hard to stay positive and focused during the holidays? Why are we so easily tripped into overreacting, lashing out, or arguing over the smallest things? It’s all about your brain.
