If you’re alone on Thanksgiving this year because you’ve gone no contact with a gaslighting narcissist or someone with NPD, you don’t have to spend the day by yourself. Get involved with your SPANily instead!
You are never alone because you always have your SPANily. Even on Thanksgiving Day! That’s right, my friend. The SPANily has you covered with several events on Thanksgiving Day this year. **Be sure to double check the time zones listed so you won’t miss anything!**
Here’s our schedule for the day:
- Our day will begin with a live stream from Coach Lise on our Life Makeover TV channel, right here, at 10 a.m. PST/noon CST. This is a FREE event.
- Coach Misty will do a live stream for Thanksgiving Day divorce support at 4 p.m. CST on LIfe Makeover TV, right here. This is a FREE event.
- Coach Lise will also host two private group coaching sessions on Thanksgiving Day. These sessions will focus on self-care and will be held at 11 a.m. Pacific time and at 6 p.m. Pacific time. Not sure you can commit to four weeks, but still want to join in on Thanksgiving? No problem! Lise says if you’d like to join for just a single one-hour meeting on Thanksgiving Day, you may do so for just $15. Email her at [email protected] to get your discount and join the group session.
- At 7 p.m. CST you can join Coach Colleen (and me, Coach Angie, briefly) in our Thanksgiving Day with the SPANily event, right here. This is a FREE event! Please note: you do need to be a member of the SPANily to join in this event, but you can join for free, right here.
In the meantime, if you have the time or need a little encouragement, below is my Thanksgiving Day video, which offers tips and ideas on getting through the holiday and on resisting the narcissistic holiday hoover. Hugs and love to you, my friend.
Here are some tips for not being so alone and to avoid the holiday hoover to get you through. You don’t need to be all by yourself – you won’t have to be alone for Thanksgiving this year!
Dear SPANily, I have one request today! Please share this post with any other survivors who you know might be alone on Thanksgiving Day. Help us reach as many as possible so no one needs to feel alone. Love, Angie
