In “Coping with Divorce Over the Holidays: The Best Way to Handle Irritating People,” divorce coach Kat Forsythe provides advice on how to cope with people who try one’s patience at the best of times. “If you’re in the midst of a divorce, your mental health may be teetering on the edge of sanity during the holidays,” says Forsythe. “Knowing how to deal with the family and folks that push your buttons is critical.”
