You don’t have to pretend that your parents passive aggressiveness towards each other over turkey dinner is okay. You don’t have to look the other way and smile while Uncle Joey gets hammered on the spiked egg nog, slurring his words and making inappropriate jokes. You don’t have to lie to protect your sister for cheating on her husband, or act like it doesn’t bother you when you are ridiculed by your Aunt on your parenting style, again. You don’t have to force your kids to skip nap or stay up past their bedtime just to please your MIL, nor do you have to explain yourself or apologize for your needs.
Loyalty to family does not mean loss of self. You are allowed to have limits. You’re allowed to set + follow a new value system for yourself. You’re allowed to whistle blow on things that don’t add up to you. You are allowed to feel safe, seen and heard— even through the holiday season.
I know setting boundaries with family is hard, scary, and confusing. But it isn’t impossible.
Join me Monday for my upcoming workshop on this topic. I will guide you through exactly what you need to feel confident + peace this holiday season.
