Valentine’s Day Tips for New Divorcees

Better Manage This Day Focused on Love

Perhaps no other day has become the embodiment of showing affection for someone quite like Valentine’s Day, yet for many who have just ended a once important relationship, this day can be incredibly difficult to try and get through. Many people who have gotten divorced struggle with this day and often wonder where things went wrong. Rather than subject yourself to this type of thinking, however, consider following these tips to better manage this romantic day.

Treat Yourself to Special Self-Care

While traditional methods of self-care such as eating healthy foods and exercising can certainly benefit your emotional and mental health, this may be a day to go beyond these means and try other things. Special activities such as taking a relaxing bath, getting a massage, or treating yourself to delicious foods (in moderation, of course!) can really help you get through this day and minimize the difficult emotions you may be battling.

Avoid Social Media All Day

Many people post pictures of themselves with their significant others on their social media channels on Valentine’s Day, and this may be hard to look at all day. You may feel tempted to compare your life to the lives you see on social media, further robbing you of your joy; however, this comparison can be avoided by logging out of your social media apps.

Look Forward

Keep in mind that divorce does not mean that you failed and that you should wonder where everything turned in the wrong direction; instead, divorce is a fresh start to a new chapter in your life. While reminiscing can be appropriate at times, spending too much time thinking about the past and things that you cannot change can drag you down into emotional distress. Remember that you have so much more ahead of you than you may realize; while you may wish for a relationship in the moment to celebrate the day, keep in mind that your time may come.
