With Valentine’s Day looming, there will be many people who have broken up from a partner that do not want to be dragged into the commercial “love fest”.

Listen, its hard to get over a heartbreak when you keep going back to the source that caused it- whether that’s continuing to text this person or looking at their socials.

Can I suggest setting a boundary by saying that you do not want to communicate with this person post breakup? This boundary will allow you to process your emotions and start to think about investing in yourself and to establish your identity as an individual.

You don’t need to try to ignore your feelings of sadness and anger but it’s important to not sit around feeding your emotions with breakup songs, binge watching TV with a bottle of wine a pizza and a tub of
ice cream.

Keep your mind occupied and consider this to be the start of your own ‘rebranding’, as a single person.
