‘Tis the season to be joyful and merry, right? Yet, with all of this pressure from family and advertisers, the holidays can often feel like an isolating time of the year when you’re single (and not married). Our desires become heightened and our personal lives simply become more visible.
Many Latinas are dreading what I call the “Familia Year-End Review”. Everything from judgments of why we are still single (and not married), why we don’t have children or why did we have to get divorced. And of course, we can’t forget about our nerves when we decide to bring our new romantic partner home to meet our familia.
Does the stress of it all have you struggling emotionally? Do you find yourself hiding or desperately seeking approval from familia? Are you trying to rush things along with your casual dating partner? Maybe you’re even leading with sex to find love? Don’t despair Chica, your love life during the holidays does not have to be filled with such feelings of loneliness, desperation and stress. Want to some great tips to change your love life and enjoy the holiday season?
