Psychic Vampires. Chances are you know at least one. You know who they are... the ones that are always complaining... always have some crisis happening... always in the middle of some kind of drama...
Hopefully, you try to avoid these people at all cost (and hopefully, this is not you). But sometimes they are more difficult to avoid .
With the holiday season upon us, I have just a few words of advice:
1- Keep time with the Psychic Vampires short.
2- Avoid "hot" buttons. Topics, old wounds, etc. that don't need to be brought up.
3- Always have an escape route (whether that means another room, a walk outside, an errand to "pick up ice", or another obligation).
4- Look for the good. Whether it's your health, that you have enough food, a warm place to be or that you can be together with the non-Psychic Vampires, ENJOY those things. Don't dwell on the crummy parts.
And maybe a garlic necklace wouldn't hurt - that tends to keep everyone away!
