Whether you’re currently going through a breakup or not, understanding the psychology of heartbreak can help you understand what goes on in your mind during a crushing disappointment to feel empowered with more strategies to navigate your emotions the next time you experience heartbreak.
We have entered the month of love and the Winter Olympic Games.
Like you, I am seeing the annual reappearance of red velvet heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, Valentine’s Day cards, and “spa specials” littering the landscape of western consumerism.

A moment in time when we suspend our differences and renew our love for our sweethearts and extend it to our international enemies and neighbors.
