These eight ways to get you through Valentine’s Day unscathed will help you heal with determination and confidence. 

Any day following a hurtful split from a partner can be a challenge. If one of those days happens to be Valentine’s Day, it becomes much more difficult to handle. People around you are happy and ‘in love,’ but you don’t feel like being that cheerful. It can take a toll if you are still adjusting to your new relationship status and have no idea how to mend your broken heart for good!

Feeling left out and having doubts about your future can make all kinds of thoughts run through your head. So, how do you get yourself out of this situation without losing your mind? Well, here are some tips that can help you survive Valentine’s Day and create some happy memories for yourself!

Tips to Mend Your Broken Heart This Valentine’s Day

1.     Spend the Day with Friends

The people who have been holding your hand and restocking your supply of tissues during this hard time can also be dependable on Valentine’s Day. You can ask your friends to come over and spend the day or make plans to have lunch and shop. Whatever you decide, remember the goal is to distract yourself from unhappy thoughts to survive Valentine’s Day!

2.     Spend the Day with Family

Let the people who have been with you throughout your life help you get through Valentine’s Day. Spend the day with your family (parents, siblings, cousins). Play games, BBQ, and visit. By spending time with family, it will remind you of all the people you have in your life to help you get through this Valentine’s Day.

3.     Keep Busy

If friends and family aren’t an option when you wonder how to get through Valentine’s Day, try to live the day like a normal one! Keep yourself busy with office work, cleaning or cooking, or working on your favorite hobby. Keeping busy will not only take your mind off of your feelings, but it will get some of your pending work done, which can make you feel better.

…Taking care of yourself with no strings attached is the most crucial way to mend your broken heart.

4.     Go on a Trip

Leave town! Leave your home and people behind who remind you of your current situation. You are going through a rough patch, and if talking or crying it out is not going to mend your broken heart, go on a trip! Some people are better at healing themselves on their own. If you are one of them, take a trip out of town and enjoy some scenic views for the day.

5.     Spend the Day with Your Pets

Do you have a pet you can spend time with? If your answer is ‘yes,’ we suggest you survive Valentine’s Day by spending it with your pet. Your pets can feel your pain so that they can help you heal with their touch, and sometimes, funny antics.

6.     Shower Your Kids with Love

If you have children, the split must have been hard for them too. Even if you do not have your partner, you still have your kids. They can be your source to mend your broken heart, and you can be theirs. You can show them how much you love them and celebrate how grateful you are to have them in your life. Take them to a movie or out for ice cream, creating a distraction for all of you.

7.     Check Out Dating Apps

Everyone has a different approach to healing after a split. If you feel ready to get back out there and find love again, consider this Valentine’s Day as your first day to start living a new life. You can ask friends or family members to set you up with someone. You can also create a profile on different dating apps like Match or Tinder.

8.     Take Care of Yourself

Taking care of yourself with no strings attached is the most crucial way to mend your broken heart. This is the time to shower yourself with some self-love and care. Watch your favorite movies that will feel empowered again, listen to your favorite music, and spend the day for yourself—doing what you love (and a hot bubble bath and glass of wine may help!)

Summary

These eight ways to get you through Valentine’s Day unscathed will help you heal with determination and confidence. You must remember that it’s just another day of the year. You can spend it without breaking down because you are strong enough to handle the pain. Try some of these tips on Valentine’s Day and create new happy memories for yourself so you can heal quickly!
