This is such a great post about supporting us proudly weird, strongly attuned empaths/lightworkers/INFJ or INFP types during the holidaze. With the exception of the “sinfully sensitive” description (maybe it’s meant to be tongue in cheek), I wish I had written it myself.

Thank you Paula for all you do in your practice and online here at WP.

1  You’re not too sensitive if you’re easily overwhelmed by the holiday muzak, the florescent lights, the crowds, the frenetic meaningless pace, the likely psychopathic Santa and the smell of stale popcorn at the shopping mall.

2  You’re not a failure as a human being if your siblings went to Stanford and are all doctors and have two and a half kids and you’re still wondering what to do when you grow up because you took a detour into drug treatment and psychotherapy because your soft heart and gentle spirit needed to heal.

  1. Wonderful suggestions all and thank you so much for sharing this. For about 10 years now, I have been quietly withdrawing my participation in holiday habit rituals – unless they bring me JOY!
    I’ve pared down the gift giving to my kids, grandkids and certain nephews and nieces. Most of them are happy to receive my boxes of holiday baked treats – they can taste the love.
    Slowly, I gave away (many as Christmas gifts) my collection of tree ornaments and lights, preferring to leave the trees in the forest and visit them there.
    My big tradition that I do keep is to attend a classical Christmas concert during the Season. This year I attended my Aunt’s church’s concert via livestream. My cousin’s husband sings in the choir there and they put on a beautiful concert, interspersed with Bible teachings. It was a great experience and I felt so connected to my family two time zones away!
    I’m happy to see many more people finding their way through the holiday season with conscious participation in traditions of their own choosing. I think it is way more wholesome to do it this way.
    Have a blessed Christmas, Alia

    Thank you so much for the reblog!! And, yes, “sinfully sensitive” really means deliciously sensitive only I needed a word that started with “s” ! 🙂
