Wow, the holidays are here and they can be enjoyable, but they can also be stressful and harmful to relationships if we don’t take precautions.
Relationships with someone, a spouse, family member, your child or friend are truly the foundations of our lives. Good, healthy relationships support and improve everything about us, strengthening our mind, health, and connections with ourselves and others.

Whether you are in a committed couples relationship or married, when you discover a partner's affair the emotional impact is quite devastating. You may be feeling traumatized, numb or overly emotional.
One very painful issue for anyone to live with is loneliness. You can be one person in a room filled with many others and still feel empty and alone. It is one of the most fearful places to be and can cause a lot of sadness, anxiety, anger and desperation.
