When families get together, all of the family history arrives. And, for too many families - maybe yours - that isn't good because there is too much "turkey and stressing" served.
Holiday stress too often part of the package. It's difficult for those families when unresolved problems are the giant "elephant in the room."
One of the four typical relationship mistakes is "you keep the past in the present." That agitates and irritates family members and creates "ME Flashing" moments. So, family members "walk on eggshells," afraid they may say the wrong thing and "make someone mad."
Of course, that increases the stress of being together.
"Turkey and stressing" anyone?
