My Valentine’s Day Piece
Valentines Day is approaching, ( or has, depending on when you see this), and love will be in the air. I may be among the few when I say this, but I think that if you have a significant other, Valentines Day should not come but once a year in the relationship. Your love should be remembered always.
I have been married for 6 years. I don’t find myself celebrating this holiday like most. I used to dwell on it and my self-esteem would be bruised if something of significance didn’t occur. Now, I am happy that I am with a person who respects, supports, listens, laughs, and puts up with my psychotic disposition. He tells me he loves me all the time. He holds me when I need it and even when I don’t. I don’t reciprocate like I should, but I love him, (I’m not a touchy person).
If he buys me something, I’ll be grateful. However, if he doesn’t, I won’t cry or feel unappreciated. I feel that many people are pressured into believing they have to splurge, and that if they don’t, they have failed their relationship.
If you are with someone and you only use this day to treat your partner right, stop and evaluate what makes this day different from any other.
While it is nice to receive gifts like everyone else, it is also nice to receive gifts when others aren’t.
My husband and I have these Nerf guns. I love to start trouble with them. It relieves tension and it’s fun. Plus, you get to shot somebody without hurting them. It’s a win-win!!
