Valentines is tomorrow. Really? Do people celebrate it?

Monday, February 13, 2012

Okay, you can think that I am a horrible person, but to me, Valentines is just another day. I started feeling this way after elementary school. Instead of making crafts, and getting 36 valentines. You only gave them to your friends and you only got them from your friends. I was a really lonely kid. I had only 2 friends until high school, and then I had 3.

Okay, I was not lonely. I have a solid set of friends. I have people that I can rely on. I have a solid foundation. The way I look at it, I am spoiled with love each and every day. So what makes February 14, so important? Absolutely nothing. It is just another day for big corporations to get money from you. That is it. Go buy candy, flowers, cards, teddy bears or anything else. Go ahead, spend your money on something that will just die or get thrown away. Do it!! They tell you that you have to our someone wont feel important, right?

What happened to leaving a note in your loved one lunch box? What happened to washing dishes when it is not your night to wash? What happened to just sitting next to each other enjoying the company? What happened to the "just because I miss you text."

If you need, just one day out of the entire year to make yourself feel good. You are really missing out. I have 365 days that someone in my life makes me feel loved, important, cared for.

    You make some very good points! Although it's important to feel love and give love every day of the year, it is also a nice reminder to appreciate all that you have. And the money thing is so true, I would rather have a hand-written card from my boyfriend any day!

    356 days, huh.....are you allowing 9 days per year for rest???? Just kidding emoticon
    I agree, I want to be told I'm loved every day rather than receive flowers only once a year.
