How to Handle a Breakup During the Holidays…A breakup anytime of the year can be stressful and painful, but ending your relationship during the holidays brings a unique set of challenges to be aware of. Stylecaster has compiled some helpful do’s and don’ts to help you navigate a difficult time in the right way. For example, do not wait until the holidays are over to breakup. It’s only prolonging the inevitable and it will end up making the holidays more stressful for everyone involved. Also, don’t feel pressure to follow through on any holiday plans you made together. However, don’t make plans knowing you plan to breakup and then bail at the last minute. That is really unkind behavior. Be as open and direct as possible, as soon as you know you are done. Basically, don’t waste anyone’s time, yours or theirs. Do choose your timing wisely, if you are the person doing the breaking up. Explain honestly why you are breaking up, face-to-face. Breaking up via text is really not a great idea unless the relationship is in the very early stages and not serious at all. Once the breakup has happened, let your family know in case you are attending holiday gatherings alone. You can also let them know beforehand if you are ready to talk about the breakup or not. Remember, the holidays can be difficult when you are suddenly single so plan some self-care activities, spend time with friends, and stay away from family members who make you feel uncomfortable!
