Each Christmas season, I like to post “The Dysfunctional Holiday Letter” because it allows me (and maybe you) to chuckle at those holiday letters that make you want to use the airplane bag because they are just so wholesome, positive, and down right impressive! It always seems as if the events in other people’s lives flow seamlessly, and ours is a choppy river. But everyone is paddling against the current. I know this because, as someone who lives her life as an open book—with the front jacket listing 20 of my disorders--people tell me things they wouldn’t publicize to a stranger, much less their relatives and friends. And it’s genuinely funny stuff! All of the mistakes, disappointments, ironies of our lives are Jon Stewart material. If we can try our best to look for the humor in the messes, the cortisol running through our systems will stop being a choppy river, too.
