Valentine’s Day can be a challenging day to get through if you’re heartbroken. It can easily make you feel unworthy and inadequate if you don’t have a significant other. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. 

Here are 5 things to keep in mind if the thought of Valentine’s Day is getting you down:

1. Keep Your Perspective In Check

Even though you might be feeling down about being single, remember it's only a temporary feeling. It’s important to remember that there are many people who are unhappy in relationships who will find Valentine’s Day just as hard. Try not to dwell on being single. Instead, stay positive and make it a day of self-love and self-care.

2. Get Back Out There

If you're feeling social and open to meeting someone special, think about how you can get yourself back out there. Even though jumping back into the dating world may seem daunting at first, it can actually be really fun and empowering. One of the positive things about breakups is that you get to know yourself a little more after each one. So be ambitious, know your self-worth, and get back out there if you're ready.

3. Know You're Not Alone

For every loved-up couple you envy, there's always someone who's discouraged and sad. Know that you're not the only one who's single and feeling a little lonely. Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts, try spending time with a friend and connecting with others who may be in your shoes. 

4. Create Meaning

Who says that Valentine’s Day has to be about romantic love? Think about the people in your life who love you and do something to make them feel special.

5. Don't Let Sadness Stop You

If the thought of Valentine’s Day is causing you to be upset and stress out, it may be time for some self-reflection. Take time to journal, meditate, practice yoga, or do something that allows you to be introspective. You may discover something insightful about yourself and Valentine’s Day could be a major turning point for you. 

You have the power to make Valentines Day a positive self-care day, so we hope you do!
