This week Lorna and Avrum discuss making contact with family at the Holidays, what can go wrong and how to turn challenge into an opportunity.
- “Is there an advantage, something to learn from that type of experience, to invite all types of family, not just the members you get along with?”
- “If everything is smooth, harmonious and easy then nothing is ever gained.”
- “I was surprised by how caught up I was getting in other people’s anxiety and drama.”
