Know this: Being emotionally and mentally healthy doesn’t mean never going through bad times or experiencing emotional problems. We all go through disappointments, loss, and change. And while these are normal parts of life, they can still cause sadness, anxiety, and stress. Christmas brings with it an extra pressure to be “happy”, even though many of us find Christmas exceptionally stressful, and most of us have some sadness around it, missing people who have died or who are away. Let yourself feel whatever you are feeling, be it sadness or excitement, without judgement. You are human.
