Let’s Talk About: Home
“You are my home; I will always come back to you.”
The holiday season is meant to evoke feelings of love, comfort, and connection; but, that isn’t always the case for everyone. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) can also occur during these longer, darker days, leading to feelings of sadness and isolation. And this time of year can be particularly difficult for anyone who 1) lives far away from home and can’t visit, 2) has a strained or difficult family dynamic, 3) live alone, and/or 4) has a history of mood disorders including SAD. I, as luck would have it, fall into three of these four categories.
Home, for me, is not a place, and it hasn’t been for a long time. Home is people.
