Three reasons why not calling home Thanksgiving Day is one of the most important and empowering things for your self-esteem:

1. You realize when the phone doesn’t ring, it’s because no one called.

2. You realize that everyone in the world with a job is busy, especially on Thanksgiving Day.

3. You have an epiphany you wouldn’t have had if you had called.

The holiday epiphany reveals that each person is absolutely as capable and responsible to call as you.

And as a bonus, you understand that whatever your Family circumstances are, everyone may actually be okay with them.

Bottomline: when the phone doesn’t ring on either end, no one needs to feel guilt. Liberating discovery.
