NEW YEAR WISH! by Judd Howard Story

This season can mean many things to many people. To me it is a time of joy and sorrow.  The joy is that I get to spend time with my family.  The sorrow is that I miss the people who have passed on that I no longer get to spend the holidays with.

I have the memories of how exciting Christmas was as a child.  Waking up and being excited about what Santa had brought me.  Playing with my new toys all day and eating the wonderful holiday food.

I think about how lucky I am because I have my family and there are people who don’t have any family to celebrate with this time of year.  Some people with a mental health label who have families are alone because their families do not want to be around them or they don’t want to be around their families.  The issues surrounding mental health can divide families even at this important time of year.

I would hope that people would become more open towards each other including those with a mental health label. That is my NEW YEAR WISH!
