Holidays after infidelity

Betrayal pulls the rug out from under you and makes you question yourself and your reality. Things that you relied on as true, you find out were not, leaving you ungrounded, grieving, and wondering where you can turn to for safety and rest. Which can be especially painful around the holidays, where tradition reigns supreme, and you find yourself in unfamiliar territory with the outside pressure to be jolly.

Top Take-a-ways:
  • Creating traditions post-betrayal, for yourself and others.
  • Reflecting on holidays past, and learning to acknowledge, receive, and grieve the joy and loss of what was.
  • Tradition as a way of marking time, increasing your sense of belonging, making meaning in a chaotic and unpredictable world.
  • How to revisit the values and beliefs connected to holidays, examine what is important to you now, and reestablish an identity in accordance with your deepest values.
