I love the idea of the Thanksgiving Holiday and focusing on the things we're most grateful for and getting together with family. It's an awesome idea. Yet for some it can be a source of major discomfort.
For me, I used to spend year after year feeling dread and anxiety at the very thought of Thanksgiving Day.
Every year my immediate and extended family gets together for a huge Holiday dinner. I really am grateful and do enjoy seeing most of the family but there's a few that I have felt incredibly uncomfortable around. For years, I just tried to stay busy and stay away from these people.
