“Psychology says, if you aren’t happy single, you won’t be happy taken. ”
This can’t be more true! I was married for a long time (13 Years) and like some of you, Valentines was a sad holiday for me. For you it might be because you are single, but for me the Holiday represented another day of dissapointment. I was the only one at work not to get flowers or chocolates. I came home to last minute purchased flowers from Publix and him trying to figure out what to do last minute. So for me this holiday was a day of resentment, because i couldn’t understand why I was not deserving of feeling special and appreciated like everyone else. When I became single again, it was a time to rediscover myself and a time of finding my inner peace and when that happened I learned to love and value myself. I no longer have that expectation of needing someone to make me feel special because I make me feel special everyday! I am now in a new relationship and can honestly say that I don’t have the pressure of this Holiday any longer for the very simple reason of loving myself and secondly because my loved ones love me! I dont have the longing for the roses or chocolates (maybe the chocolates lol!) any longer and my boyfriend makes sure to make me feel special everyday and not just on Valentines. Today I celebrate the love within my home which is the priceless gift we give each other!
So just remember that Happiness comes from within and not from people. If you are feeling blue today then you need to practice some self love.
Happy Valentines to you All!!!!
