Most recently, we heard she was actually giving herself a ridiculously hard time about it, worrying that she "failed" at her marriage. Ugh, poor Khlo! Thankfully, the latest buzz really makes it sound like she's -- knock on wood! -- healing from her breakup and maybe even moving on in a healthy way.

A supposed friend of the Kardashian family spoke with HollywoodLife.com exclusively and shared how Khloe plans to spend Valentine's Day.

“For Valentine’s Day, she wants to be with her family and close friends. Valentine’s for her is about love, not necessarily romantic love. She’s all about loving herself right now, and treating herself like a princess, instead of waiting for a guy to do it,” the friend says.

Love. It. That's the best possible thought on the mushy holiday. Because simply trying to blow it off as a "Hallmark holiday" can end up being a weak defense. Better to go in with a game plan like Khloe's -- making it all about treating yourself the way you want to be treated. (That's what love experts often say makes a person more attractive, anyway!)

And as for future prospects, getting back out on the dating scene, etc., the Kardashian buddy revealed:

Khloe is determined to find love again. She doesn’t want to stay in a negative place and is working on forgiving herself and Lamar for everything that went wrong. ... She still truly loves Lamar, and doesn’t regret getting married to him. She is convinced that everything happens for a reason and that if she stays loving and open, she will meet the right person. She is just taking care of herself and spending quality time with family and the little ones.

I'd believe it! And yeah, I want to believe it! Because I'm really not sure if there's any better way for Khloe to proceed. If she really can stay "loving and open," optimistic and "determined," she'll be well on her way to a blissful new beginning with a lucky new guy. (Who knows ... maybe even around Valentine's Day?!) 

Do you think Khloe seems to be handling her split from Lamar the right way?
