What should I do with the people in my family that have hurt me over and over again? I have finally put my foot down and I am refusing to go to the family holiday party because a certain member of the family will be there. This person is a bully and the rest of the family justifies the behavior saying they have always been this way and not to take it personally, which is hard not to do. Do you have any advice for me?
For many people, family gatherings are a huge source of tension, but you can attend that party and even enjoy yourself, if you get a healthy mindset first.
Read the following points every day for week before the party. Principles of truth, like these, can give you peace and clarity in any situation.
