From Dr. Jane's Notebook

December Holidays

Welcome to December! As the holidays fall upon us with hustle and bustle, you may once again find this to be a busy time for your emotions. Holidays, family reunions, and this particular season, often arrive with a host of heightened expectations. To avoid the trap of disappointment as a result of unmet expectations, I offer the following advice:

            This can be done by giving your time and attention to really talk and listen to your friends               and relatives. Each of us changes so much from year to year that unless we spend time               talking, even closely related people may never really get to know one another. But even a              short conversation that involves sharing of thoughts and self can go a long way toward               establishing a very personal and meaningful relationship.
