How To Spend The Holidays Alone
6. Say no to invitations that will cause you to feel angry, sad or just plain awkward.
Spending time with obnoxious family members, annoying co-workers, or your ex and his/her inner circle are not viable alternatives to spending the holidays "alone." Your self-esteem will be better served by a show of respect for yourself. Keeping your calendar free of toxic, energy-wasting encounters will leave room for new and exciting plans to take shape.
7. Say yes to new adventures.
Holiday obligations often keep us from enjoying our precious time off, whether this means engaging in a hobby you've been meaning to try out or embarking on a new creative project. Now you have the freedom to explore. If you notice an opportunity to try something new—by yourself or with new friends—then now's your chance to say yes. What are you waiting for?
