Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is annually celebrated on the 14th of February.
Valentine is known by all, even the little children will tell you that valentine is “lover’s day”.
Val day, as popularly called by many has been tagged as “lover’s day”, yet has been misinterpreted or misunderstood by many.
Some young folks especially the girls have been deceived on this day. They are misled and taken advantage of in the name of valentine. More so, it’s important to have a better understanding of this day, that it is not a day to give yourself to a man who is not married to you.
Valentine is more of a married couple thing than of single person.
It’s shocking to know that because of valentine some person’s have broken their relationships while others, even go as far as committing suicide or murder.
The love that you receive on this single day, can’t be more important than the love you have received in 364 or 365 days of the year.
It’s okay to celebrate. But, it’s not okay to take it too seriously, or too extreme nor to exaggerate.
It’s unreasonable to destroy a relationship that you have taken months or years to build because of one day. Just because you feel that, the reason why he or she didn’t spend the valentine day with you, is because he/she is spending time with another, or because your partner does not love you enough.
Sometimes you must be rational in your thinking and in your judgment, as there could be other reasons why your partner could not spend the day with you, they could be busy with work, they could be dealing with health issues or even financial problems, you should always put your partner into consideration before drawing conclusion.
It’s important to remember that the gifts and love shown to you on Valentine’s day, couldn’t be more important than all the love, support or gifts that your partner has shown or given you over the years, months or even weeks as the case may be.
Do not destroy what you share, because of this day and nobody said that one must only celebrate valentine day with your partner only, if you must celebrate, you can celebrate with your friends and family.
It’s a day to show and share affection, so husbands, wives, sisters, brothers share gifts and show love to your partners,
friends and family on the special day set aside to celebrate love.
Enjoy your day regardless of where you are, whether you got a gift or not, you can make yourself happy and even gift yourself.
Do have a joyous and beautiful Valentine’s day and happy Valentine from me to you.
