From shopping malls to television to our computers, we’re bombarded by holiday tunes and jingles.
If you’ve recently lost your partner, these seasonal tunes can stir up happy memories as well as tears of remembrance.
Because it’s everywhere, holiday music and the bittersweet recollections that bring on tears are hard to avoid.
Rather than fighting it, we suggest you try to “go with the flow” and, in the privacy of your own home, allow a few tears.
By giving yourself permission to grieve, it will be easier to get on with some of the pleasures of the holiday season.
