Deep Dive Musings | How To Deal With Your Family

Is being around your family hard for you? Are the holidays bittersweet because of potential disagreements and triggers?

The holiday season is mixed with feelings of joy as well as tension between families as people spend time with family members they haven’t seen or talked to in a while. There’s an interesting dynamic when it comes to family because of the length and type of the relationship.


In this episode ofThe Deep Dive with Adam Roa, I talk about why being around family can be a struggle and how it can activate past, unwanted behaviors in ourselves.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Why it can be difficult to be around family
  • Why other people’s opinions can energetically upset you
  • How to use tribe to support yourself in becoming your ideal self
  • How to shift your outdated perspectives of your family

In my own family, communication has never come easily. However, lately, I’ve been working to improve this area. It’s been a blessing to be able to strengthen this skill by learning about each other as we move through different stages of our lives.

If we allow our old ideas of who our family was, we can become blinded to who they actually are. 

If you’ve ever felt misunderstood by your family or struggle to be around them, then this episode is for you. I give tips on how you can shift this old paradigm and create a deeper connection with your loved ones this holiday season.
