Relationships during the Holidays-Guest POST? Help me out?

Doesn't it seem like relationships are either stronger or weaker during the holidays?  Like this time between Thanksgiving and New Year's is a pivotal time for couples.  Is it the onset of depression that comes with Winter for some?  Is it finances?  Is it family pressure or the pressure of having to see family?  Or could it be the feeling of giving that gives some a feel good euphoria?  The anticipation of something new?  The weather forcing those inside to spend more time together, therefore, strengthening relationships that needed that quality time? (Of course, that could work the opposite way also).

It's time for you to volunteer your excellent voices to the Real World blog once again!

I want your stories.  I want to know what memory or event turned your world upside down.  What thing happened that either weakened or strengthened your relationship during this season between Thanksgiving and New Year's?  How did it?  Did it affect just your relationship and/or every relationship around you?  How did it change you?  How did it change the person you had/have the relationship with?

Your first love?
Friend in need?
Family in need?
Financial burden?
Financial blessings?
Old love renewed?
Love given up?
Falling out of love?
Worst fight ever?
Best make up ever?

Those are just off the top of my head.  But I would like you to share your story with us here at the Real World.  Share with us what you went through, can we learn from it?

I also have a few LETTERS that have been written that I will post in between your stories (if you don't know about the LETTERS posts please click HERE to find out)-along with Group Therapy-and What Would You Rather.  So VOLUNTEER and GUEST POST over here!  We, I, would love the help and would love to hear about YOU!  You can do it linked back to you or Anonymous like always.

So comment here and let me know what you want to write about and I'll schedule you... or email me at, SUBJECT: Story.

Love you all!

Let me get home to the Great White North and I'll sit and see what I can contribute because this is a worthwhile site.

Um...and in case you're wondering, of course my post would be about DEATH and how it affects the holidays.
Maybe I can think about it and write it while I'm on the plane, with tears running down my cheeks, going home....leaving my children behind.
so hard.

OK Shelle,
i'll do one on family drama and spousal support (It'll be better than the title).
Wendy is the bravest soul on earth.

As a Newbie, I am always searching online for articles that can help me. Thank you Wow! Thank you! I always wanted to write in my site something like that. Can I take part of your post to my blog?

I just did a brain dump maybe that'll help with the writer's brick wall I've been having.

You completed some good points there. I did a search on the theme and found the majority of persons will have the same opinion with your blog.
