Cupid’s Advice:

After a tough breakup, it’s all too easy to fall into depression.  Here are a few ways to cope:

1. Visit friends and family: Family and friends are the best support system.  A few afternoons with the people who care about you most can do wonders for your attitude.

2. Resolve issues: Especially after an emotionally rough split, it’s difficult to let the relationship go.  If possible, contact your ex and make amends.  While your relationship may not be saved, your partner’s friendship can be secured.

3. Keep moving forward: Accept the past and move forward with your life by trying new things.  Pick up a few new hobbies or pursue an old goal.  The refreshing new beginning will help you heal.
