Yesterday we talked about the blues we often get after the holidays are over.  Today I want to mention that another way to look at this—just a thought to keep in mind.

Oftentimes we feel disappointed because we’re looking at a situation from our point of view, not other people’s.  We’re comparing things to the idealized version we have in our heads and we assume others are, too.  We think they’re thinking and feeling the same way we’re thinking and feeling.

That isn’t always the case.

Most likely, others don’t have that same idea so, to them, the holidays were probably much better than what we assume they’re thinking.

As I said, just another thought to keep in mind.

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
