- Rated #6 in 7 Tips to Survive the Holidays in a Relationship
It's ok to say no to certain aspects of the holidays. The important thing is that you communicate with your partner what you are willing to do - then stick to your word.
Don't overdue yourself around the holidays. It's a time of the year when things tend to move quickly and stressors pile up. Instead of partaking in an event, trip, or activity that will only aggravate you later, know when and where to draw the line ahead of time. Communicate clear boundaries with your partner as to what you are willing to do and when. You'll avoid arguments and bypass any feelings of resentment that could boil over.
