Is it a special or is it special? Do we find ourselves each year giving praise to our loved one’s via chocolates, hearts, poems, flowers, etc simply out of love? Of course we do! As you may have noticed, I have a lot of hypothetical questions I ask, but then answer them. They should be obvious. It’s the same with what we do on this day. We go out of our way to show our appreciation and love for our significant others. Even if we may find ourselves on the losing end of a relationship, which may be uncertain or rocky, it’s the thought that counts. It’s the effort and time one has sacrificed to show gratitude to another. It’s about the heart. It’s about giving yourself to someone wholly. Not just on the easy days. Not just on the holidays of which products and goods are bought and given. But it’s on the rough days you contemplate why you’re doing this and that, when you haven’t received anything in return. Just like my reciprocity post. This day isn’t about receiving, but giving and showing your true love for someone. For some, this isn’t a special day. There’s no significance associated. And that’s perfectly fine. We may actually be better off this way because we don’t or shouldn’t need a holiday to find a reason to be thankful, kind, and gracious. We should be embellishing our loved ones each day. We should also not take these people for granted. Give credit where credit is due. Don’t be afraid to tell people how you feel. Don’t use this day as a reason to care for someone or be over-the-top. Once you’ve taken someone for granted and haven’t appreciated them to what they deserve, it’s a steep hill to climb. But if you’re willing, and you think it’s worth it, use this Valentine’s Day to pour out your heart to the one you are truly meant to be with.
