There are two major groups of people during the holiday season. The first group is the group that love the holidays. The other and lesser known group is the people that think the holidays can be a disappointing or sad time of the year.
For the first group holidays are a great time of the year. It is a time filled with seeing family and friends. Many times you have multiple Christmas parties to go to during the season. You have many gifts to buy and give and/or you are getting many gifts. You have vacations to go on and people to visit. For students you get a break off from school, and for many you go to your hometown to see the people you care about. This is the life of many people during the holidays.
BUT for the second group the holidays are not a happy time. For these people the holidays can be a sad and disappointing. And there is many reasons why the holidays can be like this, and everyone’s reasons are different. But for a few it a reminder of the loved ones you lost. Or it’s a time of battles with family members about the things of the past. Or you have no one to spend the holidays with in general. And during this time it doesn’t help to get on social media and see all the great things that are happening to everyone else.
For the first group of people remember:
- Enjoy these times you have with friends and loved ones. It might not be like this forever. Don’t take these precious moments for granted. These seasons are a gift that should be cherished.
- If you know someone that could be in the second group. Reach out to them, and try to include them the best you can. Treat this person as you would want be treated if you were them.
For the second group of people remember:
- Have hope during this time that holidays will get better, and that it may only be like this for a few years. Remember that you’re not alone. There are many people that feel this way, and it could even include those people that look like they are having a blast this holiday season.
- And if you don’t think things will get any better than try to make the situation better. Reach out to others for help during the holidays. You don’t have to be alone and sad during these times. Make the best out of the situation you have been given.
Though regardless of the group you are in there are some things you both can remember about the holidays. Remember the real reason of why we have the holidays. The real reason we have the holidays is to remember the birth of a little boy, named Jesus, who came to save the world. He came to give us the best gift we could ask for. He came so that we could have eternal life. If you don’t know if you have this gift, then let me assure you that it is given to whomever wants it. As long as you believe that this little boy came for you and me to save us from our sins then you can have eternal life. I pray that you have this gift, and if you don’t then you receive it this holiday season.
