Bad Months for Love

In the last 1 week,

1 friend had a major fight with her boyfriend.
1 friend broke up with his girlfriend.
1 friend had a fight with her fiancée and is on the verge of breaking up and calling off the wedding.
1 friend’s wife left him.
1 friend and his wife got divorced. They have 1 baby girl

It seems like Nov n Dec are bad months for love. My ex and I broke up about this time last year. It was one of the hardest things my heart had to handle in quite a while. There were also a string of break ups and divorces around the same time.

Not sure if it’s due to the stress of the coming holidays. Or approaching a new year compels one to evaluate ones current life and make changes that’s necessary to improve life. Perhaps ppl become complacent in the middle of the year and should there be problems, they tend to ride it out and the unhappiness culminates during the holiday season when everyone is expected to be happy.

I also remember reading a research conducted worldwide that break ups do trend to happen a lot more towards the end of the year.

While I’d like that special someone to spend the holidays with, I guess it’s better than experiencing a break up right about now.

Being single now isn’t gonna be easy. Wallow in misery for a while. Cry your heart out. Find a temporary distraction. But things do happen for a reason and perhaps it’s just not meant to be.

If you need company, be it for coffee, to get drunk or do something fun and silly, anything just to forget or feel happy again, you know who to call.

I would not have survived my last break up was it not for my dearest friends and certain distractions.

Let your heart heal and eventually it will be filled with something or someone better. This is my hope and prayer for everyone.

Hugs and love all round.
