Guest: Kevin Peterson Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Even though the holidays can be the happiest time of the year, it can also be the most stressful.  It is ok to be in your feelings.  If you struggle with substance abuse, it might be time to reach out to a therapist or just ask for help.  You do not have to do this alone.  Even going for a walk can help.  Do not be afraid to set boundaries.  Let people know ahead of time what your expectations are if you are hosting, if you want people to leave by a certain time tell them the time they need to leave, let them know if you plan to limit alcohol.  If you are at a party, it is ok to leave when you want to, people will not remember you left early.
