Valentine is approaching and it’s bringing back memories of the years when I’d dread the day because for some of us its Single Awareness Day & for some it maybe too commercialized or forced.
I remember dreading it the most during high school years when a student from the admissions office would deliver those big fluffy bears, heart-shaped balloons, roses to the very popular girls in my class and it would never be me. The funny thing is that I wouldn’t give up the wait until 3pm for that day and repeat every year though. It was hard trying to be happy for those girls when I was feeling so bummed about myself.
I also remember a time when my parents took me and my sister out on Valentine’s Day and how I felt embarrassed and kept praying no one from school would see me.
It went on a few more years like that after high school until I decided to spend it with friends and do something that day instead of feeling sorry for myself.
Looking back it feels silly but at the time it was intense. I get you, all you single ladies:0) Let me tell you that your time will come when your guy will make you feel special and loved every single day and you’d be grateful that it played out the way it did.
Cupids are over rated and they are not even real.
Love does. Every day and not just on Valentine’s Day.
I do like the chocolate and flowers but I never want my husband to feel obligated to do or get me anything because it that we’re the case it really suck the life out of the gift.
Happily married ❤
