Well, many people tend to engulf themselves with the past memories, pictures, music that remind them of their EX and make themselves miserable up to the land of no return.

So is there no better way to get through the day of love than being miserable and lonely after a terrible break up? Of course there is. You can survive Valentine Day or any other day if you get your mind in your control and choose to value and love yourself more than the “events” in your life.
- Get rid of all things that remind you of your EX
The first step is to get rid of all the gifts, photographs and letters that remind you of your EX. Make sure they are either trashed or burnt. These things are not only occupying space in your apartment but also, in your mind and your heart. Let them be nowhere near you, so that you can start to move on or at least head for recovery from your break up. [ Read: 10 attractive things that men do without knowing about it ]
- Get together with your single friends
Try not to be with your couple friends or mushy couples during the Valentine Day, as it is sure to remind you of your EX and will make you nostalgic and you might dial them in heat of the moment and then regret it and curse your own self for your decision. Also, try to stay away from the mutual friends you have. They will definitely bring up the topic of your ex and what went wrong etc. You don’t need that. Instead, get together with your single friends who can tell you about their single life and how they have fun and hang around. It might actually make you see some benefit of getting back in the loop!
- Pamper yourself
Gift yourself something that you always craved for. Buy yourself a fine piece of diamond jewelry or that Rolex watch you always had your eye on. You don’t need a valentine to make yourself feel better and happy. You can take responsibility for your happiness and this is a great start. Go for a shopping session or pamper yourself in the spa. Make yourself feel worthy and relaxed. Don’t let other’s perception of you affect your life in a bad way. [ Read: Hidden messages behind the different colors of Valentine Roses ]
- Take a break from social media
Social media during Valentine Day will be full of mushy posts and love related poems. Your friends might tag their respective partners and pour in their feelings of love for each other. All this seems cute, when you are happy. But it can get extremely annoying when you are not in a good position in your life. So, take a break from social media and focus on your real life during this day.
- Don’t victimize yourself
The last thing you want to do, is go in a rut and victimize yourself for all that has happened with you. Don’t victimize yourself and your luck and life. Make sure you take responsibility for your actions and whatever has happened to you. Plan a great year ahead and try to focus on the future rather than the past. This will help you a lot and make you move on to better and beautiful things. [ Read: How Men Think About Relationships ]
