Holidays can be full of invitations. The celebrations may look and feel a little different this year, but the invitations will probably still come. You may feel obligated to attend or participate in these events because you were invited or because the event may be something that you would have attended in the past. There is power in the word ‘no’. I am talking about a good, old fashioned, solid ‘no’. The kind of no that does not come with an explanation or an apology. You deserve a holiday that does not leave you feeling overwhelmed and drained because you agreed to something that you really should have passed on.
