Make the call. The Holidays can truly be a crazy time of goodness and pain. Emotions are running deep and many people, not just you, don’t know how to deal with them. Loved ones will say some pretty stupid stuff as they are triggered as well. So make a plan to make lots of calls. Set a reminder on your phone, make preemptive calls while You are doing good. Call and tell your guys you what you are doing right, what is going well. Share how you are feeling, the good, the bad, the ugly.
