Valentine’s Day: a day deemed the most important day to show your significant other that you love them.

False.

This shouldn’t be the only day you show your loved ones that you love them. This also shouldn’t only be a day for couples, it’s a day for everyone to show their love. My mother surprised me with a card, she was like a ninja and hid it in my room the last time she came to visit me. I’ve been saying this a lot, but love comes in so many different forms so why shouldn’t this day, along with every other day, be a day you show love?

Yes, I am in a relationship, but I don’t usually make a huge deal in doing the typical couple-Valentiney-things. I spent a lovely evening with the boyfriend, we ate dinner, dessert- he made me a strawberry cake- and watched Avatar. I loved it. I love him. He makes every day special because loving someone isn’t something that can be expressed once in awhile. It’s not something that is only shown in order to make a pretty instagram photo. It’s something that isn’t always seen but you feel it. I feel loved every time Matt looks my way, when my siblings tease me about something, when my mother answers the phone when I call, or when my dad saves the day when there’s a storm brewing. I am indeed lucky. And I bet, if you took the time to see all that is around you, you’ll feel the love too.

So please, treat this day like any other day, don’t let the candies and flowers make you feel as though you don’t matter. Relationships are great, but loving yourself is just as great. I hope you spent this day with loved ones, and I hope you spoiled yourself because you deserve it.

That was my 2 cents on this Hallmark Holiday.

Thanks for reading.

    I love this message 🙂 Love is for everyone, and it can come from anybody. Valentine’s Day is so commercialised that it’s easy to forget why it existed in the first place.

    Big hugs! ❤️

    @Georgie, It is! I can’t stress it enough. Some people get really sad around this time, and I’d hate for someone to feel unimportant simply because they are single.

    Thanks for reading!

    I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day at all, but I make the most out of the discounted chocolates the day after! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    @Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s, I did the same thing! I purchased the flowers above because they were leftover and I thought they were still very pretty.

    Aww. That’s such a cute gesture from your mom ❤ Valentines, for me, is just one ordinary day, but I love how light and happy the atmosphere was during that day.

    @Mariz, She’s so adorable, so it was a cute surprise. And it also proves my point that Valentine’s is a day of love in general.
    I’m glad you had a happy day as well.

    Thanks for stopping by and reading.

    Awwee. This is just perfect. I hate how social media define Valentine’s as something to be treated a very important holiday that grand gestures became a requirement. I was busy with my research proposal so I wasn’t able to prepare something sweet for my mom and the boyf on that day so I went to a store this afternoon and did some shopping in a preparation for a very long letter to the both of them. 🙂

    @Augustin Ra, I don’t like that some people post on social media for some sort of validation.
    That’s really sweet that you still made time for them, and you don’t have to have it on THAT day. Reminding someone you love them on any day is such a wonderful thing.

    Thanks for reading.

    I totally agree – Valentine’s Day should be everyday 😀 Sounds like you had a nice evening with your boyfriend. Mine and I don’t really celebrate V-day but we do just go out to eat like usual, haha

    @Eena, I always enjoy my time with him. It’s always relaxing.
    Food is always good! My bf and I want to try cooking more at home though. We just can’t always choose a type of food though. XD We both love too many things.
