Getting over heartbreak is not a journey. It's a fight

February is Saint Valentine’s month. Each of us will live it in a very different way. There will be those who in principle find that it is a commercial holiday without any sense and will ignore it as much as possible, those who will organize a beautiful evening, which may cost quite a lot, and those who will be alone …

Being alone for Valentine’s Day when we are not indifferent to what this holiday entails at the time of a relationship can be quite challenging. The feeling of loneliness can become acute and the suffering of a past break up becomes again of topicality. This is the reason why I would like to share this TEDTalk with you.

Guy Winch, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist, author, and in-demand keynote speaker whose books have been translated into twenty-four languages. He advices on how to deal with the emotional pain of a broken heart.

How the Fields that Investigate Romance and Substance Abuse Can Inform Each Other.” Frontiers in Psychology (2016): 7:687.)
