Coping with Valentine's Day when your heart is broken - Heart Breaks and Breakups

Valentine's Day can be a difficult time for people who have recently gone through a breakup. Here are some things you can do to help you cope:

  • Prioritise self-care: Take care of yourself by engaging in activities that bring you joy and comfort, such as exercise, reading, or spending time with friends and family.

  • Avoid social media: Seeing posts about happy couples can be tough, especially on Valentine's Day, so it's okay to take a break from social media if it's causing you distress.

  • Write it down: Journaling or writing down your feelings can help you process and understand your emotions.

  • Seek support from loved ones: Reach out to friends and family members for support, as they can provide a listening ear and help you to process your feelings.

  • Try to forgive: Holding onto anger and resentment can be emotionally draining, so try to find a way to forgive your ex-partner, and yourself, and move forward.

  • Focus on positive memories: Instead of dwelling on the end of the relationship, try to focus on the positive memories you have of the person you once cared about.

  • Focus on personal growth: Use this time as an opportunity to focus on your own personal growth and self-discovery, rather than dwelling on the breakup.

Use our WHO AM I journal to go on a journey of self-awareness, discovery, and understanding while forgiving, accepting, and moving on from your past to focus on your future.

Remember, it's okay to feel sad and it's normal to need time to heal after a breakup.

Be kind and gentle with yourself, and know that things will get better in time.
