It's an urban myth that suicide rates spike at the holidays. It turns out they actually go down.
Experts think it's because people are less inclined to off themselves when surrounded by family. Ironically, that same family togetherness is thought to be the same reason that depression rate actually do spike at the holidays.
There's an old proverb that says you can't choose your family. You take what the fates hand you. And like them or not. Love them or not. Understand them or not. You cope. Then there's the school of thought that goes, the family you are born into is a starting point. They feed you and clothe you and take care of you, until you are ready to go out into the world. And find your drive.
