In my previous article, Mending a Broken Heart, I presented ways to cope with the end of a love relationship. The following will address some issues faced when you are once again entertaining the thought of looking for a partner and having to deal with anxiety and feelings of vulnerability. Here are some guidelines to surviving and possibly thriving in singlehood, which I hope are helpful.
As a therapist in private practice, I often receive an increase in calls from the newly-separated once the New Year rolls around.
This might be partly due to the fact that many individuals “keep it together” over the holidays for the sake of their family. Once they welcome in the New Year, however, many declare that they will not remain in an unhappy relationship any longer.
