Breaking Up During the Month of Love
Even though it may take time to get over your breakup, there’s no time like the present to start taking steps to focus on you and pick yourself up!
Going through a breakup can be a pretty painful process, and there are times when it is particularly rough. One of those times is around Valentine’s Day. If your significant other is feeling extra cruel and really wants to hurt you, breaking up on Valentine’s Day is the way to go. Seeing red hearts, flowers, chocolates, and loving couples everywhere will surely remind you of your broken heart at every turn. Sometimes timing just isn’t ideal, sometimes there's just no other way around it.
Guess what? Even though it may take time to get over your breakup, there’s no time like the present to start taking steps to focus on you and pick yourself up!

There's always a time and place to celebrate friendship and forget about a breakup or a failed romance.
