As I sat there at the holiday table, I wondered if this was the price to pay for my freedom.

I’d just left my abusive husband and the rest of my family was celebrating the holiday with him.

A friend took pity on me and invited me to her house along with another divorced friend and some newlyweds who couldn’t keep their eyes or hands off each other. Not awkward at all.

It was really nice of my friend to include me but I couldn’t wait to get out of there.

All I’d known until then were holidays surrounded by family--where my dad judged my weight and admonished me for protesting “playful” jabs from my husband. Where the holiday stress brought out another level of tension and the desperate need to cover it with a game of “Let’s Pretend We’re a Loving Family.”

I felt destined to suffer through the holidays.
But step-by-step, I've addressed the 5 things that kept me from thriving through the holiday season.
