I know that the Thanksgiving holiday is all about gratitude. But what if you can’t get there just yet? What if you’re encased in fear, and listing your blessings only deepens your depression because you feel like a loser, a whiner, a spoiled brat of an American for not feeling truly grateful?I know this sounds unpatriotic and totally self-absorbed but this is what I say: don’t sweat it. You’re not there yet. It’s okay.One day you will be, and your gratitude won’t be forced.I wish all my readers a very happy Thanksgiving holiday–those who are at a place in their recovery where they feel truly grateful, and those who aren’t capable of compiling that list just yet.To view my YouTube video, click here.
