It’s Valentine’s Day. The one day that those in relationships flaunt like no tomorrow while single people publicly share their disgust. I’m single this year for Valentine’s and honestly I love it. My single friends are pretty bitter today and continue to talk about their disgust for the holiday.
“I’ve got no Valentine.”
“This day is SO overrated.”
“Can couples stop shoving it in our faces already.”
I’ve been mad chilling today and I honestly have been enjoying it. I was in a relationship a couple months ago so I did spend Valentines last year with my ex. This year however, I’ve pushed to love and put myself first for once, where now Valentine’s makes me happy. I don’t need someone to appreciate me for one day. My life won’t suddenly end without me having a significant other. I’m perfectly content and spoiling myself all day today.
I have been helping my friends plan their Valentine’s day all week with such excitement. Picking the perfect outfit or gifts. This years Valentine’s Day has honestly been my favourite. I don’t have this bitter feeling towards other couples, instead I’ve been encouraging their successful relationships and their happiness together.
To all the single people out there, it’s just one day. Let those celebrate Valentine’s with their loves ones and let us celebrate the love we have for ourselves. At the end of the day, what matters most is our wellbeing and our ability to love us before we can love those around us.
