Single During Thanksgiving


You saw the future of you two growing old together and living happily ever after....but things have changed drastically. You two just broke up and now you are facing the hardest time of the year single. The holidays are here and your partner is not. People in your life may say, "Happy Thanksgiving" and all you feel is Unhappy during this festive time. What are you thankful for? This question is probably one of the hardest questions to answer when all you can feel is pain.

The mixture of emotions may be keeping you stuck in bed longer and preventing you from eating. As of the next few months, your job is simply to survive the holiday time. Don't expect yourself to be this happy person ready to take on the world and start dating. NO. That isn't where you are. Baby steps are best for the single hood status.


Surround yourself with friends and family to help you move through the day. Focus on your community and remind yourself that others are out there to support you. Don't wait for friends or family to seek you out. Get involved in volunteering if your community support is lacking right now. Alone time when feeling lonely is only going to make things worse.
