I hope today has been a good day for you.
I decided to reblog this article because when it was originally written, I posted it late into the holiday season, and that didn’t give everyone enough time to follow through with some of the ideas.
For dissociative survivors, Christmas is often a time of heartache, sadness, loneliness, trauma….
Making NEW memories, positive memories, is a crucial part of healing.
So I encourage each of you to use this article as a launching pad for finding fun ideas you can do with your insiders, or with your cherished outsiders.
Making good memories, and starting good traditions — it’s not too late for you. You can start this year, and continue on for many, many years to come.
Enjoy! And have FUN!!

Just trying to soothe the child-parts who are triggered and frightened by much of the imagery around this time of year.
