...an anti-Valentine’s Day celebration may be in order.
(PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Online divorce service MyDivorcePapers.com (MDP) seeks to make divorce as easy as possible for their clients, but even when the divorce is uncontested, many can still feel the residual effects whenever there is a “first” or a special occasion they’re experiencing alone for the first time. One of the hardest days for the newly divorced is Valentine’s Day. In MDP’s latest tip sheet, they offer advice for how to cope and even thrive during this time. Here’s what they recommend.
Focus on the future.
MDP acknowledges that it can be difficult going through Valentine’s Day alone when there are no new memories to replace the old ones. “That’s why it is important to shift your focus on the future,” a rep explained. “Don’t just retreat to the sidelines and wallow in misery. Contact other single friends. Make new plans. Look forward to the day instead of hiding from it.”
Stop looking at Valentine’s Day as a couple’s holiday.
MDP urges men and women who are past the divorce papers stage to stop looking at Valentine’s Day as a couple’s holiday. “Yes, that may be who primarily celebrates it, but ultimately, it’s about love,” the rep stated. “Love of those closest to you, love of self, love of what life holds in store for you. Ditch the ‘couples holiday’ mentality and find something to celebrate.”
Get tough with Valentine’s Day.
If one is having difficulty finding reason to celebrate, MDP notes, then an anti-Valentine’s Day celebration may be in order. “Celebrate being single and all the good things that come with it,” the rep said, citing examples like “choosing your own movie, eating a favorite meal, or engaging in activities that you always enjoyed but your ex did not.”
Above all, “be thankful for your independence and for escaping a bad circumstance,” the company added.
