For many people, instead of being a joyful time, the holidays turn out to
be times of great stress. Much of our holiday stress is due to family
members. We expect the best from them, but some seem to always disappoint,
don't they? Our expectations about parents, siblings, children and others
may simply be too high. Some helpful advice, when it comes to family
members, is just this: LOWER YOUR EXPECTATIONS!! That way you can never
disappointed. When family members exceed your expectations you'll be
doubly pleased. I hope this helps.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
