Having your independence is more important than you may think. Even if you aren’t supporting yourself now, it’s good to know that you can. People don’t always stay in our lives forever, so it’s critical that you learn how to be happy with your life no matter who walks in or out of it.
No one ever wants to spend the holidays alone, but unfortunately sometimes that's just the way it is. Whether you’re in a long-distance relationship or work in another state than your family lives in, being alone during the holidays is inevitable in adulthood. Although it can be hard, it has its benefits as well.
