Hey guys! So, Valentine's Day is coming up pretty soon. I, for one, always get excited about this day. Why shouldn't I? This is the day that is dedicated to showing the people around you that you actually care about them. It doesn't have to be for a significant other; it can be for a friend, family member, or anyone really. I think this is why people don't really look forward to this day. Just because you are not in a relationship does not mean you have to spend Valentine's Day alone. You can always spend it with your friends and just come together to hang out. Do something for your mom, or even better yet, your dad! (He'll never see that one coming). My point is, though, don't spend all of Valentine's Day, or the days close to it, complaining about how you'll be "forever alone," and instead make it so that you're NOT alone.
I actually really don't like that phrase "forever alone." If you ask me, nobody on the face of this planet was destined to be "forever alone." Everyone has somebody that matters in his or her life and every single person matters to at least one other. Whether it be a friend or a family member, you are never alone. If you're thinking "That's not the same at all," then realize that just because you are not in a relationship right now does not mean that you won't be one ever in your life. And does not being in a relationship mean that you are alone? I know that some of you who are reading this just answered yes, but the answer is no. No matter who you are and how worthless you think you are, you are amazing beyond belief to somebody.
By the way, if you are planning on spending this day with a special someone and you are absolutely broke, don't feel like you absolutely have to go buy him or her something. You can make them feel special by DOING something special. Do something that the other person would have never suspected of you. (Of course, this only applies to actions that are appropriate and that you know will make him or her feel special and show your love). Surprising your "Valentine" by doing something he or she would never expect will result in a reaction that will make all the hard work that you put into it worth it. To him or her, the fact that you took so much time and effort into doing whatever it is that you'll do for them will be worth much more than something you can buy. Now, what I just said is solely based on personal opinion; I refuse to be held accountable for any failed attempts of what I have said. (:
Do you remember back in elementary school how every Valentine's Day you would bring the little sweethearts to class and give each of your classmates some? That's how I think Valentine's Day should be. It should be about showing your love for others through small actions that mean a lot instead of freaking out over not knowing what to do for your special person. Oh, and in case some of you guys don't know...sweethearts are a type of candy. :D
