From everyone at SwanWaters,
a Very Merry Christmas!
If you are spending the day with toxic family or an abusive spouse, we wish you strength. Try to keep up the boundaries in your mind, and remember that their behavior says nothing about you, and everything about them.
If you are only just beginning to realize you are in a toxic relationship, know that the road ahead is not easy but absolutely worth it. You, too, deserve to be treated with kindness, love and respect.
In case the people that should tell you this don’t, we will remind you:
You are a person worth of love, and kindness. You deserve peace, and a safe place of belonging. You deserve to feel the embrace of family, of unconditional love.
“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.”
― Calvin Coolidge
