I hate Valentine's Day. Ick. Okay, so maybe 'hate' is too strong of a word. I don't necessarily hate it, but I do not like it. I've been single every Valentine's Day and let me just clear it up now: that's not why. The reason I dislike V-Day is because so many people, if single, are all depressed and whiny. Seriously? Pull your head from the dirt and look around you! You surely got people around you who you love.
"Every day is just the earth spinning once. Valentine's Day just means retailers move the cute pink cards and flowers to the front... and I still don't buy any. They mean only what you make of them. To me, they say "I spent some money on stupid stuff so I could avoid actually finding words for my feelings."" ~Dean H.
I totally agree with that statement. I don't really get into Valentine's Day either.
"...and sometimes doing something special for someone else makes you feel good too. Maybe buy some chocolates for your best friend, sibling, parent or neighbor that you know needs some pepping up or just because. (just because is always extra special)." Missyllaneous E.
Absolutely! I couldn't say it better myself.
"Every day can suck; every day you can be depressed. It it what you make of each day. You gunna let it suck? Life is short, don't let Valentine's Day have this hold on your life. Show a friend or family your love. If Valentine's day is about love, then show it! Doesn't hafta be to a boyfriend or a girlfriend but to anyone you love."
And that was my reply to someone who said Valentine's Day totally depresses them and it sucks.
"lol Valentines Day is just like any other day. No reason to be sad or depressed. It's a retail holiday to get people to spend money. People should show they love each other ALL the time, not on just one day. Life is good people , open your eyes and see the beauty around you. :)" ~ Missyllaneous E.
Seriously though, every day is what you make it. You wanna let Valentine's Day ruin February 14th for ya? Your choice, but I would say smile and show some love.
(Oh and ok, maybe it's not that bad, but I'm still not a fan of Valentine's Day...Never really haven been and maybe never will be. I don't know...maybe one day I will be a big ol' fan. We'll see. Until then, single people, get over the fact you're single and give your best friend some chocolate. And couples? Don't rub it in single people's faces. Haha.)
