Is it me, or are gatherings with extended family getting tricky? Go ahead and blame social media. It can feed our own echo chambers while also allowing us to broadcast opinions we all think everyone in our orbit agrees with, but that's always the case. Especially for those family and friends who live in different parts of the country, who we only see now and then. Thanksgiving should be a day of fun, food and familial inside jokes. Not about dodging trigger words like climate change, guns and abortion. But inevitably, someone will say something, sometime during this holiday weekend that will open the floodgate, unleashing a slew of eggshells on which you don't want to walk. And that's in addition to asking about your job and relationship (or lack thereof). But you can keep the peace (and your sanity) by keeping a few things in mind. Herewith, how to navigate Thanksgiving peacefully.
