Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!
If those seven words instantly stress you out, you’re not alone—and you’ve come to the right place. We think Valentine’s Day should be a happy day that everyone looks forward to, regardless of whether they’re in a relationship. What’s better than the simple act of showing someone you care about them?
Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, things got a little competitive. We all have different ways of expressing affection, but as we scroll through all the PDA and lavish gifts on our Instagram feeds, it’s hard not to wonder: am I giving enough? Am I getting enough? Am I enough? It’s enough to make even the biggest curl-up-in-front-of-the-fireplace homebody feel tempted to rent a limo, max out their credit card and be completely miserable, all for the sake of social media bragging rights.
We’re taking that mindset and throwing it into the garbage, where it belongs.
This one’s for you, enjoyer of simple pleasures. Let’s reclaim Valentine’s Day and remove stress from the equation. If you’re flying solo this February, we’re not excluding you. As the great philosopher Whitney Houston once said, “Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all.” Treat yourself!
