- Someone else will have to do dinner this year.
- You want to make dinner in your home, but you need lots of help because you don’t have the energy to do it.
- You want to go to the parties, but you are afraid you may break down and cry or want to leave in a hurry and you want them to know in advance this is really okay.
- You want to tell them it’s okay to talk about your child. Not to, makes it very uncomfortable.
The list goes on, but the point is that to pretend everything is “just fine” is a lie and that’s not fair to you or to the people who you love.
