    How does one cope with a break up on Valentine's Day?

    Valentine's Day is a romantic time for many couples  and to break up on his day  it can be most heart breaking. What would you do?

    Eat a couple boxes of chocolate along with a gallon of Eddy's Ice-cream. Hey, they say chocolate helps with depression! What else are you going to do with all that candy you're stuck with after the breakup?

    Take back the chocolates and eat them yourself.

    Gosh ! This would be a sad situation, not an easy one to cope with. I guess the best thing the couple could do is to have some understanding and compassion for each other and let go in peace. It would take  lot of strength to do that, yet it would be the best way to part. Anger is bound to rise from hurt and pain, and things will need to be said, but to try and be compassionate would greatly help both.

    To part in anger would be a lasting, unhealthy, memory. To part in peace will allow the healing to begin sooner.

    Take time out to love yourself. Most likely too much time has been spent trying to keep something together that was better left undone. Make way for a stronger relationship built on how you desire to be loved.

    Hey - ANY break-up is hard on any day.  Breaking up on Valentine's Day just seems like an extra kick to the jimmy (if you know what I mean). 
    Swallow the hurt, get dressed, put on your face and take yourself out.  Go see the movie you've been wanting to see, treat yourself to a decadent dessert or cappuccino or socialize with other single friends.  The best revenge is NOT letting the jerk know how deeply you hurt - and then he'll be questioning his decision.  Hopefully by then you've moved on and found someone who really deserves you.

    I've written quite a bit on this subject on this Hubpages account, but I'd like to suggest putting yourself in a position to help other people instead of spending your time focusing on your own loneliness. Nursing homes are a great place to start, as there are many widows and widowers who may be spending their first Valentine's Day alone after losing someone they've loved and slept beside for decades. Homeless shelters would be glad to have your help as well.

    Plus, it's Random Acts of Kindness week, so it all ties in together!
