The holidays, although a wonderful and merry time for many as this is when you get to spend time celebrating with loved ones, is a sad occasion for others who are grieving the recent loss of someone dear or are constantly reminded of someone they lost. A time when you are supposed to be happiest may be just the opposite for you, understandably.
“I know this is going to be a tough holiday for you after everything that’s happened this year. I can’t say anything that will make it easier. Words, powerful as they are, can’t change what you’ve had to live through,” begins an open letter for those who are suffering from grief during the holidays.
However, it ends on a lighter note and encourages readers to celebrate life and be grateful, something individuals, forlorn or not, should truly always remember.
