It’s February 12th, and you know what that means…Valentine’s Day is two days away. You’re not with someone, so you think this “holiday” is absolutely ridiculous because it reminds you aren’t in a relationship.
Hold up. If you have the preceding thoughts, STOP RIGHT NOW. Valentine’s Day is not just subjugated to couples. You have the power to turn this holiday around and make it special for yourself. Here’s why you should be happy being single on Valentine’s Day:
It’s a time to love yourself
One of the most important relationships we tend to forget is the relationship with ourselves. This thought often strays away from us, especially in times of stress. So, take Valentine’s Day as a day to reflect on who you are. If you start to value your morals and what you want, you may just find that perfect someone. “Loving yourself is not selfish, it is the only way you can truly love others.”
It’s a time to love the people around you
Instead of dwelling on the fact that you may be alone on this day, take your love and spread it to the people you care most about. Who says Valentine’s Day is solely for couples? It’s a day to let others know much you mean to them. So, get them a card and chocolates because they, too, deserve your love!
You don’t have the pressure of the day
No need to sweat over trying to get the perfect gifts for your special someone. You can sit and relax, while others are hectically and nervously planning the day’s date.
There’s an excuse to binge watch your favorite Netflix series or movies
You can spend the day with your closest friends
Don’t sulk, hang out with your closest friends. Laugh and spend some quality time with the people who make you feel loved!
You are not alone on this Day, pamper yourself and remember it’s okay to be single on Valentine’s Day!
