It’s that time of year where the pumpkin spice runs out, the candy comas are over and talks of turkey, gravy, and scents of peppermint are in the air. Thanksgiving is next week and this is the “official” start to the holiday season.
I’m not sure who decided that Thanksgiving was the start of the season, but mine always begins on November 1st, or what I like to call, “National Discount Candy Day!”
The holidays are difficult for most people, even if you don’t celebrate any between October and January. For Trans and LGBQ+ individuals the holidays can be a time of great anxiety, stress, and depression for many reasons.
I've spoken with many of my clients and their parents since the election on Tuesday. Many of them share common thoughts and feelings concerning the results and what they mean for the future. I have sat and processed with them and I have found myself repeating the same thing to many of them,
"Like many others you feel scared and that's okay, but it is very important that you always remember that you are strong, you are worthy, and you are not alone."
