I don't go home for the holidays anymore. Way too stressful with family. Should I feel guilty?

No I'm sure you didn't cause your family any stress growing up. So why should you have to deal with their drama now that you are an adult?

I had some major family drama last Christmas. I�m skipping thanksgiving for Europe this year- no regrets and my parents totally understand

At the end of the day regardless of reasoning, you do have to simply do what you want. We only have years on this earth, why not spend it doing something you actually want to do. The only reason I'm going this year is because my sister is pregnant and she's the only girl out of boys, so it's a big deal. I'm hoping later in the next 2-3 years I can take my parents on a cruise or something. But spending every holiday together every year is now seeming less and less likely.

My wife and I_ both have divorced parents that live in different parts of the country. Since we�ve been married we�ve not traveled to any of them during the holidays (too much friction to try and fit it all 4 stops in), but the door is open for any of them to come our way. Has worked out great and led to a much more relaxing situation for us.

In the end it’s all about family, family and family. Holidays just another day... make sure to see them the other 300 and something days a year.

So I recently started a position with Fox. When it was presented to me in interview, I was told I would be working aligned with Fox Sports & Entertainment, not so much News. Now that I’m here, I’m seeing everything I’ll be doing is with the News team & makes me uncomfortable. No diversity, outdated software & process.
Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?
