Oh Valentine’s Day…
I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day! Whether I’m single or in a relationship, I just haven’t ever loved this day! I think maybe it’s all the expectations, or seeing a million sappy posts on Instagram all day from couples that you know aren’t as perfect as they seem!
Maybe it’s expecting flowers, chocolates, and a giant teddy bear just because everyone tells you that’s what you deserve..but ya know what? I don’t even like those things! Ok..that’s a lie..I really like chocolate, but I certainly don’t need it! I don’t need to have any of those overpriced things! And yet, that didn’t stop me from being bitter when I didn’t get them. How ridiculous is that? It’s the cutest thing ever when you get flowers and you’re not expecting them, but as soon as you feel entitled to them, they lose all meaning!
V-day is a messed up holiday! If it was actually about love like it’s supposed to be I would be in total support of it! Not just love for your significant other or lack there of, but love for your family, your friends, and your love for life! Instead we all know it’s just about consumerism and proving to the world that you’re in love… even if you’re not!
I’m challenging myself to stop comparing myself and my relationship to those on social media, and I hope all of you do the same!
So Happy Not Valentine’s Day! 🙂
