Does your sense of separation often intensifies at the holidays.
We have bought the notion that has been played out in movies and books for our entire lives. These warm cosy scenes of a loving family joyously hugging each other by the fireside, enjoying dinner together or looking out a window together for Santa as the snow falls on the ground.
There is nothing wrong with these scenes for those that are blessed with those happy scenes as reality in their lives great. For those that have had other images of these holidays to live with then this exercise is for you.
