“When you’re getting together with family, friends, your parents, and with your siblings, don’t keep using the stories from the past as an excuse to feel what you feel today.” – Kathy Caprino

I’m excited to bring you this “Special Holiday Pick” episode, perfect for the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States, and for the upcoming holiday season

You may think that pain and conflict with family and friends during the busy holiday season is unavoidable, but on today’s episode of Finding Brave I’m offering 5 practical and doable strategies that will help.

These strategies aren’t just what I’ve learned as a therapist and career coach supporting others, but what I talk about today touches on real-life challenges and struggles I’ve personally experienced throughout my life.

Using these strategies will allow you to find ways to be more loving, compassionate, joyful, and grateful all at the same time. Given all the challenges we’ve experienced these past months and years together, it’s time to dig deep in our hearts and spirits this holiday season and embrace more joy, empathy and kindness – in ourselves and others.

Make a commitment today to see more good in others and the world and to emphasize and build on what you have in common, what you love and cherish together. This will help your holidays with family and friends go very differently, I guarantee it.

Since this episode originally aired, I’ve recorded more amazing interviews with guests that offer transformative strategies that are helpful in reducing conflict not only during the holidays, but throughout the year. Check out the show notes below to find these resources. And please let me know how these ideas and suggestions help you navigate conflict in new, more productive ways. I’d love to hear from you.
