Tips for surviving a less than perfect holiday

By Rita R. Robison

If the holiday season fills you with dread, a book by Teri Johnson, life coach, may offer some help.

Book Nevers_2Confronting the negative “nevers” of the disappointments in your life is where the healing can start, said Johnson, who has struggled with alcoholism and the destructive habits it brings. Her book is called "Overcoming the Nevers."

“We start to believe lies about ourselves, such as ‘I’m not good enough’ or ‘I’m undeserving,’” she said. “We escape our pain and these toxic feelings into unhealthy behaviors and addictions.”

Johnson said there’s hope in falling in love with who we are so that we can experience a joy-filled season and a joy-filled life.
