Reasons Behind Holiday Blues

There is a wide array of reasons why people experience Holiday blues. Here are the main reasons:

·  Reminders of loved ones lost: Holidays make us reflect. For the most part, our thoughts turn to beloved family members and friends who have passed away.
·  Loneliness: Holidays could make us feel lonely without a significant other. Furthermore, separation from family members can be especially painful now.
·  Financial hardship: Giving to others is one of the Holiday joys. If your financial resources are very limited, you are likely to feel insufficient.
·  In search of sunlight: A lot of individuals are adversely affected by the relative loss of sunlight they experience at winter. This phenomenon is called: seasonal affective disorder or SAD.

Debunking A Borderline Personality Disorder Myth

Borderline Personality Disorder Myth: People suffering from BPD tend to become stalkers.
