Most high volume holiday breakup months occur during November, December and the beginning of February. Why? There is a lot of pressure from family, gift giving and overall re-evaluation of one’s relationship going into stressful holiday months. A holiday breakup can be so devastating because of the time off and the unavoidable questions surrounding the breakup. Don’t ignore your feelings though. It’s important to let ourselves feel sad and go through a healing stage before we can open our hearts, feel whole and awesome again. Holidays are a difficult time for relationships to end due to past memories, your family asking what happened, and downtime because we’re not keeping our minds occupied with work and other things. The good news is that after you get through the holiday season, 2019 will be a much easier time for you.
In the meantime, give yourself allotted time during the day to grieve and then consciously move on to happier thoughts and activities. Do things that make you feel joyful and fulfilled. Spend time with those you love and be grateful for the blessings you have in your life this holiday season.
Hang in there! I promise you will start feeling better after the holidays are over. XOXO
