Some time ago a friend of mine was registering for classes and she elected to take yoga to fill some requirement. She was super nervous because she didn't want to look like a fool. After listening compassionately to her worries I got real with her. "Honey, you're going to look like an idiot!" I think she was stunned. But we laughed.
Family gatherings are about as real as you can get. So just go with it. Maybe it will be messy. But think of the times when life was horrific and now you laugh about it. "remember the time...." Or maybe it will be the best holiday gathering ever.
