I think it’s time we debunk the popular claim that says valentine’s day is a day for couples only.
I mean common, who came up with such a myth anyways!
Its no wonder Valentine’s Day is dreaded by single people.
Every year before the month of February even begins, the memes start rolling in and all the funny videos. Don’t get me wrong I love a good joke as much as the next person, but it gets tiring when it happens every single year…
I think its time we settle this once and for all.
So, let’s talk about it.
the problem is that somehow during the years that followed after the first valentine’s day, the true meaning of the “valentines” somehow got lost in the mail. Which means the generations that followed never got the memo.
So, we decided to put our own meaning to the word, and look where it got us. Crying alone on valentine’s day while eating chocolates and watching really bad cheesy romance movies.
Valentines’ day is a celebration of love. There was never any specification as to what kind of love we celebrate. So, we are supposed to celebrate all kinds of love.
But somehow, we are all got stuck believing that Valentine’s Day is a celebration of only romantic love.
No, it’s really not.
Valentine’s day is a celebration of platonic love, the ones you share with your friends, family and even random strangers. It’s a celebration of self-love, the one you share with yourself and the celebration of romantic love, the one you share with your significant other.
All these kinds of love are equally as important as the other and should all be celebrated. That’s the point of Valentine’s Day.
It’s not meant for a segregated group of people. So don’t feel left out if you’re single.
You never have to dread Valentine’s Day and lament “God when?” because trust me, it is as much your day as it is anyone else’s.
All that matters is the type of love you choose to celebrate on February 14th.
