Rearrange your calendar????It’s normal to plan for things in advance, usually with your partner in mind.????If you had a vacation booked together during the holidays, go with a friend who makes you happy!????And allow yourself to cancel on plans that could make you uncomfortable.????A get-together with their friends is OK to skip.????2.

Dodge awkward conversations????A good way to avoid awkward conversations from friends and family is to get someone to do your dirty work for you, so you don’t have to explain the reason for the breakup 1,000 times; forcing you to relive painful memories.????3.

Take a break from social media????Taking a break from social media is good advice for any breakup, not just during the holidays.????If you’re not over your ex, you could spend your time obsessing over whether or not they saw your posts or you could be bombarded by posts of your ex having a great holiday without you.????4.
