It’s that time of year again…Valentine’s Day. A day that promises to make all the single people of the world feel like absolute SHIT about themselves. I am a reasonably intelligent person. I know that I don’t need a man in my life to complete me, but there is something about Valentine’s day that throws all reasonable and intelligent thinking right out the window. I get so caught up in the commercials and the songs on the radio and the fact that I’m not dating anybody right now KILLS me.
But I think Valentine’s Day a just as stressful for people who are IN a relationship. Do you give a gift? Is it too soon to give a gift? Is this too much of a gift, is this not enough of a gift? The list goes on and on. I’m not going to lie, I liked getting Valentine’s Day gifts as much as the next person, but it was never about the jewelry or the flowers, but the thought that went in to it. I was always more happy with a gift card to a book store than I ever was with flowers. But then too, I don’t need gifts to confirm that someone loves me (or doesn’t this year lol). Love should be shown and celebrated every day, not just on February 14th.
