One of the most explored issues of holidays is that the events – dinners with family, meeting up relatives that you would otherwise rarely catch up with and all that holiday fuss in general – can pull you back to some sort of unpleasant memory you have made every effort to bury. The feeling can cause you mild or high discomfort, and it could be difficult to identify it.
Romantic relationships can often cause the same negative reactions in your thinking during this time of the year. You may find it painful to hear about the pleasant experiences of couples you know during their holidays, whether it be in person or through social media and networking. If you are feeling insecure and uncertain about your relationship, you will subconsciously compare your experiences to theirs, creating flaws in yours that weren’t there initially. Apart from that, you can feel a deepening sense of grief, as you see and hear about others’ relationships, while you are single.
Another issue is spiritual depletion, which manifests itself in a sense of depression caused by the multiple factors: you deem the holiday rituals no longer worthy and superficial, you have nowhere to go, you are feeling isolated, etc. The sense is notable for the irritability and sadness that it causes. Often this manifests in choosing to work overtime or staying at home, while others are having good time somewhere else.
If you have lost a loved one, you can feel great grief during the holidays. That is so, because you may recall spending holidays with them and enjoying the experience then. The main reason for that lies with the fact that holidays represent a special occasion for spending time with your family and friends.
Getting to the essence of things, it should be noted that hypnotherapy can help you out in such scenarios. After all, holidays aren’t the right time to feel bad; rather, they should be a time to empower yourself and recharge. Through hypnotherapy, you can begin to take in healing or suggestions aimed to improve you. The negative thoughts can be lessened to a great extent, as their volume is turned down through suggestive hypnosis or the tunes they play in your mind are replaced with more soothing ones.
