As we approach the holidays, it is the time of year when people experience anxiety. The Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons are not always welcomed in some individuals’ lives. Even though this can be a happy time for some, it can be devastating for others. Just as the holidays can illuminate emotions of happiness, it can also trigger feelings of despair and depression. When coming in contact with people during this season, be nice to them. You don’t know what they are going through. Smile and give encouragement. At the same time, operate your life with wisdom and safety. Stay away from situations that could end up in violence and harm. Be careful while doing your holiday shopping and always be aware of your surroundings. Be kind, be safe and handle with care.
