The holidays are officially in full swing and here come the battles of facing not just facing your families or coworkers but also your relationships/singledom, the resolutions you didn’t keep but vow to keep in 2016, and the of course, body issues as you eat and drink your way through all of the parties and/or festivities.
It can be rough. And I’m feeling it extra hard this year more than ever.
All of these things can make even the most secure people feel insecure with themselves, their relationships, job, or what have you.
We, as millennials, get faced with some of the following questions:
- Are you dating anyone?
- (If you’re dating someone) Is it serious?
- Did you find a job?
- What are your goals? What are you doing to achieve them?
- Did you move out of your parents’ house? When are you planning to?
Seriously, have mercy.
If you’re life isn’t already figured out, you may have some kind of explaining to do to people who are settled and moving. These questions can make us question ourselves and what we’re doing or where we are going.
My #MORAvation for you today is to remind you that everybody is different. We all have different journeys, so don’t compare yourself to your cousin across the table who might have a baller career or be married with children. That will only bring you down and drive you further away from where you want to be.
Know what you bring to the table (no pun intended). Focus on your accomplishments rather than your failures and try to keep all the chatter positive. If it turns the wrong way, feel free to politely walk away or change the subject!
Let me know how you get through it because I’m already feelin’ the heat!
