It’s that time of the year again, February 14th. The day where all your friends and associates do one of two things. They’re either using social media to brag about how they have someone to spend this “hallmark holiday” with, or they may be crying the blues about how damn lonely they are.
Sure, the idea of Valentines Day is somewhat sweet. Although there are plenty of people who participate in the hype every year, the other percentage of the population is left with the reminder that their love life completely sucks and they’ll probably be single for the rest of their life. However, this negative thinking isn’t going to get you anywhere young man. That’s right, I’m talking to YOU!
For some of us, Valentines Day may be doing nothing more than shining light on that bitterness we’ve been suppressing for the past 365 days. Perhaps you should try changing your interpretation on this special day for the lovers.
STOP BEING A HATER–simple as that! So what, your love life completely sucks right now. At least you can be happy for those who’s love life doesn’t suck! The point of Valentines Day is to celebrate LOVE. Being same-gender-loving while already having the odds against us should be even more reason to celebrate—wouldn’t you agree? Let’s face it, you know how difficult it is to find that special connection with someone. Therefore, you should applaud anyone else has found that special someone.
Don’t spend this Valentine’s Day bitter or mad at the world because love hasn’t been on your side. I could conclude by telling you to love yourself and to cherish the love from your family, friends…etc. This is a valid point and something that you should never take for granted. However, you’re human and this thought alone probably isn’t going to keep you warm at night.
So I’ll leave you with this last bit of advice:
Leave your days of being bitter behind and get through this Valentines Day with a smile while continuing to create better versions of yourself each day. When the time is right, you’ll meet someone who was worth the wait after all.
Happy Valentine’s Day
