It is close to the time where holidays and families become something that happens together. We can be hurt by the things around us or let them be. It is hard to be doing holidays with a smile on your face when you are separated or going through one. Don't be anything but yourself. Always show your true colours and know that you are not alone.
In the same moment don't let it take your joy either.
While it is hard to be separated you need to be able to celebrate the holidays just the way you are because holidays aren't always pretty or fun but they are real and they are for everyone.
