Getting a divorce? You don't have to hate Valentine's Day

This time of year can be very difficult for people who decided that the New Year was the right time to file for divorce. After all, the holidays are over, the kids are back in school and it's the beginning of a new fiscal year. However, if you are among those who have started divorce proceedings in recent weeks, the upcoming weekend can prove to be more stressful than you may have expected.

Valentine's Day is a time for hearts, love and romance. This can all be wonderful for kids and people in relationships, but if you are in the midst of a divorce, it can make you feel bitter and isolated. However, there are a few ways to change this and make this a weekend you don't have to hate.

One of the best ways to change the tone of this weekend is to focus not on romantic love but the love you share with friends and family. You can make a nice dinner for your kids or go out for brunch with friends. You can also take the time to show yourself some love by treating yourself to a relaxing spa treatment or gift from your favorite store.

You can also put your energy toward helping others who may also be struggling this holiday. Children in need, patients in the hospital and other single friends could all benefit from small gifts, unexpected visits or homemade Valentine's. As the author of this Huffington Post article points out, reaching out to help others can make them and you feel happier.

Finally, it can be helpful to try and remember that this holiday will pass and next year, you may be in a much different place than you are right now. The heart balloons will come down and people will move on to the next holiday. 

Staying positive and focused on the future can help you cope with the difficulties not just with Valentine's Day but also with divorce in general.
