1/8

At family dinners, I often transform from the calm and collected person I normally am (heh) to feeling like I could snap at any time. (If my cousin makes that annoying whistling sound one more time…) Navigating it all can be tricky: There are family dynamics to adhere to, uncles to avoid speaking with (no I don’t want to hear your hot take on current events), plus the annual “Why are you still single?” chat.

Feeling slightly more unhinged at Thanksgiving seems to be a universal experience, but at the end of the day, you’re grateful to reunite with your family—or get to know your partner’s a bit better.

Still, it’s helpful to know you’re not alone, with a running internal monologue throughout the day. The following universal Thanksgiving-related notions aren’t just running through your head.

You’ve had these 7 thoughts at Thanksgivings past, right?

1. Should I stay in the kitchen and pretend to help?

Because, #realtalk: I am not going anywhere near that turkey carcass.

2. Will Aunt Linda ask me about my love life (again)? Because I literally can’t even.

Yes, single and fine with it. No, not worried about my eggs drying up!

3. How much wine am I allowed to drink (it is arguably healthy)?

One giant glass? Two small glasses? A bottle? Just kidding….

4. Is it bad to think about pie before we even start dinner?

Whatever. No one can read my mind…right?

6/8

5. What would I do without my stretchy pants?

Risk someone seeing me inevitably unbutton my tight jeans before taking a second helping of sweet potatoes? No thanks.

6. I’m sleepy—are we sure tryptophan isn’t to blame?

Either way, if I finish eating first I’ll for sure get the best nap spot.

8/8

7. Can we *please* talk about anything except politics?

Seriously, Uncle Greg—chill. Ugh, where are my essential oils?

Need to find some common ground? Here’s what to watch on Netflix to keep the peace and how these wellness pros practice gratitude.
