Being lonely can be difficult to handle, especially if you're alone most of the time. Those who spend a good bit of time alone often end up sad and depressed. If you spend the day sitting around at home without interaction with others or any events to attend that will help break up the time it can be very isolating.
Valentine's Day is one of those holidays that can be fun and happy. However, if you're alone on this day it can be, quite possibly, the worst day of the year. Seeing those who are happy and in love can be depressing. It can make your already lonely day much worse. Thankfully, there are ways to deal with loneliness on this loving happy day. For quality drug rehab Greensboro NC services, be sure to call Legacy Freedom. We can and will help you in 2017!
Reevaluate Your Life
Think about who you are and where you are today. How far have you come with recovery? Are you still struggling with addiction? Do you wish you had a better job? Reevaluate your life and your goals and come up with a new plan. This is a great way to motivate yourself on a day that would otherwise be spent sad and alone. Planning to better yourself in the future is empowering. Think of all your accomplishments thus far and use them to create new goals and a plan to reach them.
Ignore the Day
Chances are the reason that you are sad and lonely on Valentine's Day is because you do not have a significant other. If this is the case, ignore the day altogether. It might be difficult considering how commercialized this holiday is, but remember that this is just another day of the year. Don't buy into all of the hype that comes with Valentine's Day. Treat it just like any other day of the week.
Considering this day is all about love and happiness, don't forget to treat yourself. Do whatever it takes to feel special. Take the day off work, eat all your favorite foods, find a fun activity you can do alone and send yourself some flowers. While you're out, also buy yourself a nice box of chocolates.
If you have to work on this day, send yourself flowers at work. There's something special about seeing flowers coming towards your desk, even if they're not from a significant other. You will still appreciate their beauty and wonderful scent.
One of the best ways to forget about Valentine's Day is to continue on with your normal routine. Get up at your normal time, go to work or school, work out, grocery shop or clean house, eat dinner normally and don't even think about what day it is. This goes along with ignoring the day, as we mentioned above – but this option helps you not only continue your routine but also stay active. This way, even if you have negative thoughts about the day you won't be too bummed out considering all you have to do.
We hope these tips help you cope with being lonely on Valentine's Day. We know how difficult it is to be alone but that doesn't mean you have to sit at home by yourself. Find something that makes you happy and special.
