It's been several months since we've had a "Question of the Week"...

Just wanted to know how the holidays are going for folks. The holiday season can be a stressful time in the best of circumstances, but particularly so if one is newly separated/divorced. Has this holiday season been difficult for you? In what way? What kinds of things have you found help the most when you are feeling down?

One thing I believe can be extremely helpful is to be active with this group. Attend the events and make some new connections. Perhaps even offer to host an event! Hosting is not difficult and it doesn't have to involve a big party at your house. For example, pick a movie, date and time and we'll get it on the calendar. As host, all you have to do is show up and make sure everyone finds one another.

I understand it can be extremely difficult to take the first step and walk up to a group of people you don't know. But we've all been there, and with all the new members joining, you very likely aren't the only one. Plus, we are very friendly - everyone says so!

Ok, enough plugs for the group. :) But being involved really is a very positive way to move forward, and I believe it can help.

Other thoughts?
