For many people around the world, Valentine’s Day is one of the most special and exciting days of the year. It is a day where loved up couples and people with secret crushes get to spoil the apples of their eye and feel their hearts swell, BUT, I’m sure more than a few of us have had different experiences than that over the years! If one thing is certain about love, it is that it is unpredictable, and one of the cruellest ways that this can be displayed is when you go through a break up right on the eve of February 14th. Being heartbroken on V Day is the worst, but there are ways to make it through! Here is how to survive Valentine’s Day if you’ve been through a breakup.
1. Different Kinds of Love
Instead of focusing on romance, dedicate the 14th to all the other kinds of love that have in your life, whether it be parental, platonic, familial ... any other kind of relationship you enjoy that doesn’t involve matters of sexuality and the heart. There has been a growing popularity in recent years of single friends getting together to celebrate one another with a delicious meal and fun girl’s night in. Having a Galentine's Day can really help to take your mind off your heartbreak.
