I have never been a Valentine’s person for one I feel like Valentine is a consumerist holiday to push sales, two it makes single people sad for some weird reason, thirdly, it promotes materialism in an already materialistic world, as a way to express your love. I believe moments need to be cherished as they come, the days you celebrate should have a meaning behind them. But hey hey, that’s just my opinion, if you love this day, there’s nothing wrong with that too. I mean I am a person who loves anything with hearts on it, so what do I say!
People, especially young people, feel low on this day if they are home alone on Valentine or if they have no plans to go out. You do not need a partner to celebrate a day of love, you need to love yourself. And you NEED TO LOVE YOURSELF EVERY SINGLE DAY and love yourself fiercely. But why am I even writing this post on Valentine’s because the word “valentine” gets everyone’s attention.
This post is a visual attempt to reduce stigma around being alone at Valentine and not having a partner, having being stood up by a partner, not having plans to go out, not having galentine’s, you still can have fun.
