Accept that the holidays will be different. Acceptance doesn’t mean you like the situation or that you don’t wish you could change it. Rather, it means accepting that the situation at hand is what’s real, and that denying it or fighting it will only make yourself feel worse. Ask yourself, “What do I need?” What would help you feel less sad, less anxious? To connect with family over Zoom on the holiday? To keep family traditions alive in your own home? To do something totally different and unusual on the holiday, essentially declaring 2020 a holiday bye year?
