For all the Valentines out there who are still waiting for flowers; go buy your own. I don’t mean to be unkind, but I have learned that if you really want something go get it for yourself out of self-love/care.
I know Valentine’s Day is a day for Romantic Love, the time you make sure “they” know that you care-even if you show your care all the time. I, like many of you, am not in a romantic relationship. I have male friends, but that’s not the same. I have girl friends who have wished me happy Valentine’s Day, but while I love them- I won’t be cuddling with any of them tonight.
For some Valentines Day is one of carnal love, which may include some romance, I would take both and add intimacy that allows honesty and vulnerability. I know, for many of us, it’s a day that makes many of us sad. Here’s what I know, when one truly loves themselves you spend your life being in life. When you are in life there is no past or future …or Valentine’s Day, it’s just today, another day you gave to yourself and did your best with what you had.
