Instead of trying to be who you think you "should" be with your family, friends, in-laws or guests, just relax and be yourself! So often we put unnecessary pressure on ourselves to be a certain way, impress people (even those we know well) or say the things we think others want to hear. When we let go of trying to please everyone and we're able to be true to ourselves, we create a genuine sense of freedom and peace. This also means we need to think about what would be fun for us and our immediate family to do for Thanksgiving, and communicate this to everyone else (in-laws, extended family, etc.), even if it may upset or disappoint some of the people involved.
