All tagged loving yourself
Over the last five years, my husband and I have been focused on working hard and travelling a lot.
For some reason, we keep getting drawn back to Southeast Asia, so I'm familiar with the cries of “big clothes for big ladies" and men massaging my feet in the ubiquitous foot massage places. Or being sat at the table with those sturdy wooden chairs. Been there, done that – and honestly, I'll probably do it all again in the future!
The holidays are a fun, festive time of joyous celebration, but they can also be difficult for a lot of reasons. Whether you’re facing this season without a loved one, dealing with difficult relatives, or dreading the busy work that comes with prepping a Christmas dinner, the holiday season can make many people anxious.
If you exist in a larger body, much of that anxiety can stem from comments you know will come up during family get-togethers. “Are you sure you want to eat that?” “Cousin Susan has gained so much weight this year!” “Do you really need a second slice of pie?”
Those comments are hurtful, and hard to avoid. So, what can you do to make your holiday gatherings more cheer and less jeer?
