Members socal2010 Posted September 2, 2009 Members Report Share Posted September 2, 2009 What are your plans for dealing with the upcoming holidays?I'm already dreading it. I know my family will want to celebrate. They will joke around and have small talk about their kids and blah blah blah. They will bring up my Mom and probably tell some funny stories, but I'm not in that frame of mind yet. I deal with grief different than my family. They all moved on. For me, I was extremely close to my Mom so it's not that easy to enjoy anything. I especially don't want to be with a large group of people. It's only been 6 weeks since she's gone. I'm sure my family will be offended that I don't want to see them. They will probably insist on it somehow. That's how they are, they don't respect my wishes because they think it's healthier to have a family get-together. I'm not sure if I should care what they think or just do what is comfortable for me.
