Family reunions all through the Lunar New Year holiday are incessantlyreasonsof importanttension among Koreans, basicallybecause of sniping from relatives. Psychologists say too much conversationmay also be as destructive as no longer enough. Lee Ho-seon, a counselor for senior citizens, said, "It's a myth that members of the familywill have tocommunicate to each and every other so much and openly, whileactually many have little communication between themselves".As the older generation becomes less authoritarian, the entire framework of family gatherings is changing. "In the past, culture dictated that families acquire during the vacationsalthough relations are frayed", Lee said. "But even the older generation at the momentan expanding number of feel it's larger to keep away from family gatherings if there are tensions".
Psychologists also say other folkswish to realize that they should now not haveto understandeach petty detail about every one other's lives and give one another some space. "Many individualssuppose it's Good enoughto mentionsure things to their relatives since they suspect they know the entire thing just about them", acknowledged Hong Na-rae at Hallym University Clinical Center. "But the fact is they frequentlyhave no idea much and are livingfairly separate lives". And Lee Dong-woo at Sanggye Paik Health center added, "We're well mannered to strangers, but in the family we think we will exist frank, and that causes problems". Counselor Park Sang-hee issues out that for patients from depression the Lunar New Year holiday might benormally the worst time. It's far better to stay things mild and general, and keep away from touchy matters like college grades, employment, marriage plans or if a childless couple are making plans to have a baby. If such subjects are to be raised, make supportive comments instead, and remind those that are going thrua difficult fourth dimensionin theirbeyond achievements.
