I am going to be all alone on the most romantic day of the year. Only if I could change my face or my body! Then I would have a significant other to celebrate Valentine’s day with. SNAP OUT OF IT! YOU ARE HAVING A NIGHTMARE.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret…Valentine’s Day was a holiday created to sell candy, flowers, cards, food and gifts.
The actual history of Valentine’s Day is actually not very romantic at all. The Catholic Church recognizes three different saints with he name Valentine, all three were killed. According to the first myth, Valentine was a priest who was killed for continuing to perform marriages in secret for young lovers after Emperor Claudius II banned marriage for young men.
Another myth tells us that Valentine was killed for helping Christians escape the harsh Roman prisons. The final legend suggest that, a jailed Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting after he fell in love with a young girl-who visited him during his confinement.
Valentine’s Day is not about doing romantic things and snuggling up with your significant other all day. On Valentine’s Day you can show anyone who you love how much you appreciate them.
How about starting with yourself? You love yourself, right? Who said that you needed a boyfriend or girlfriend to make you feel special on Valentine’s Day? Make yourself feel special, you deserve it. After all no one can love you if you do not first love yourself. Get dressed up for yourself. Pull out that dress or cute shirt that you only wear on special occasions, comb your hair, and don’t forget your confidence.
Call some of your friends or family members and ask them if they would like to do something with you. You all could go to a restaurant, the mall, the movies, the city, out roller skating, the spa, or a concert. Have fun! Remember its your day to appreciate yourself and those whom you love. You do not have to go out and do anything special if you do not want to. You could have a movie night or game night with your parents and siblings. You may not have a significant other but you have yourself and others who love you. Have fun and remember no boyfriend or girlfriend on Valentine’s Day, no problem!
