If you’re divorced or in the process of getting divorced, it’s easy to fall into the trap of dreading Valentine’s Day. But Valentine’s Day is about love, and love comes in far more than one flavor. Here are three ways you can spend Valentine’s Day this year celebrating your newfound commitment to yourself:
Bake Valentine’s Day cookies together and deliver them to your friends and family. Go bowling, see a movie, or do whatever it is that makes you feel connected to your family. Valentine’s Day is about love, so who better to spend it with than the people you love most of all?
Is there somebody in particular who helped you survive your divorce? Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to reach out and spend time celebrating the friends who are willing to show up for you in your time of need. Host a dinner party, or go out. Revel in the community of love that embraced you with open arms when your marriage ended.
Whatever this means to you — treat yourself. Maybe it means a spa day, maybe it means taking a mental health day from work, or maybe it just means taking the time to cook yourself a special meal. Whatever indulgence you choose, you are worth it.
And here’s one more thought: Maybe, just maybe, you’ve managed to get divorced in a way that leaves you wanting to give your ex a card, instead of a nastygram. Divorce doesn’t always have to be adversarial. Sometimes, a relationship has just run its course, and at Atlanta Divorce Law Group, our goal is always to help you get divorced in a way that will leave you with your memories of the good times still intact.
