The Hulk of a Holiday Season In 2021
by Alex Garrett
We all know The Hulk. He’s that iconic Marvel character that just explodes as the mind of Bruce Banner becomes polluted with thoughts.
It’s time to recognize the emotional Hulk that lurks in ALL OF US. Can you admit that yes you bottle up until the meltdown instead of having the dialogue needed? At least I can. That’s why I want to address it for the Holiday Season!
I can say it was an emotion-filled week and the after-math of that has brought me more awareness. My experience of late has been just trying to analyze a lot of little things to the point where it gets me to either tear up at a bar OR just shut down. That’s the bluntness I have to offer. F THE LITTLE THINGS.
I also cry at times too and when I’m done I’m like why did I do that? Sometimes it’s just awkward for myself and the people I care about around me. It feels like a ‘Hulk’ takes over and there is no going back.
So why am I saying all this? To again crush that emotional Hulk that could be felt during the holiday season. This is a time where we have to worry about the vaccine status to even live some kind of normal life. Add family dynamics during the holidays, angst about traveling and oh by the way a lingering pandemic , yes, that is a Hulk of a Seasons Greetings isn’t it?
The best saying I can is a SAVOR THE HOLIDAYS ! We are able to celebrate with family again! That should be joyous, not stressing ! God is giving us a chance to live again also as we are about to honor the birth of The Son of God! So savor the holidays and don’t let the Emotional Hulk SAVAGE your 2021 Holiday Season!
