I’ve had so many lovely messages wishing me a merry Christmas. Thank you! 1/12

I’ve also heard from people who are going through very tough times. These always seem worse at Christmas. 2/12

At this time of year, we’re bombarded with images of perfect lives, which bear as little relation to reality as tinsel does to gold. 3/12

If you’re lucky enough to be with the people you love, warm and safe, with enough to eat, I’m sure you feel as blessed as I do. 4/12

But if your life is currently full of difficulties; if you aren’t where you want to be, either literally or figuratively, 5/12

remember that extraordinary transformations are possible. Everything changes. Nothing is forever. 6/12

Thinking back to my worst Christmas, I found it hard to believe that my unhappiness would pass. I was truly afraid of the future. 7/12

You never know what the future holds. Astonishing reversals of fortune happen every minute. 8/12

So if you’re sad, or lonely, or bereaved, or ill, separated from your loved ones or in any other way suffering this Christmas, 9/12

I send you love and wish you luck and better times. Millions of us have been where you are now. 10/12

Remember, Christmas Day is, in the end, just a day. It isn’t a test or a scorecard of you or your life, so be kind to yourself ❤️ 11/12

❄️☃️✨🎄 Merry Christmas! 🎄✨☃️❄️
