  • With strength! Just tell yourself your going to do it and put your mind into thinking things will get better. Surround yourself with positive people and activities and try not to think about the negative. Sorry for what your going through.

  • Try not to think about all the bad and think about the good. Think how wonderful its going to be spending time with your kids and seeing their faces on Christmas morning

  • ((hugs)) I'm so sorry to hear your dad is unwell and your unhappy in your marriage. Don't let Christmas stress you out. Do what will be fun for you, and let the rest go.

  • Focus on whatever positives you can find. If you have the time, volunteer at a local shelter, helping others is a great way to lift the spirit.
