We know it's not easy to move on from a breakup (or even a non-breakup breakup!) during the holidays. Everyone seems so happy and the environment seems so festive that you feel like everyone's being insensitive to how you're feeling. But here's how you can slowly heal during the Christmas season, ladies, because we found the best tip to help get your mind off the pain slowly.
Lovesagame.com suggests one thing: help other people. There's this inexplicable feeling you get when you give to the people who need your help and when you see how it changes them. You don't only change their lives, you also change yours. Somewhere along the way, you'll find your purpose and put more meaning in your life. Plus, you get positive vibrations from taking part in something bigger than yourself, too.
So instead of staying in your bedroom and spending your time crying this Christmas vacation, sign up for volunteering activities you can join and take part in.
