Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and it is the month of love for some. However, for many it has become the month where everything just highlights how alone we really are.
I, however, disagree with the above statement. Valentine’s Day is not just a day to see how many ‘baes’ give you roses, it about appreciating the people around us and showing them you care.
If you are one of those people who feels like there is no one for them, and there is no one there I dare you to look closer. I’m willing to bet you that there is someone there waiting in the shadows for you to notice. It may just be a friend, or a family member or possibly a possible significate other.
While you are looking for this person to show your gratitude to or just simply can’t find that person, I have some ‘surviving valentines’ tips.
- Enjoy your day with a good book. If you are lucky enough to live in the northern hemisphere; then you probably still have a bit of frost and cold so you can curl up with a good book and your favourite hot drink.
- Treat yourself to something. Whether it be chocolate, a new pair of socks, a new make-up/ beauty product or even getting yourself some flowers. This is a lovely way to know you’re loved. The most important person on valentines is yourself.
- Treat another. Send flowers or chocolates or anything to a friend or family member. It will make you feel happy that you are doing something nice for someone and they will certainly enjoy it.
- Be grateful. Gratitude is a wonderful thing and I promise it will come round full circle. Just send a message to someone you are grateful to have in your life.
These are my top tips to make your valentines a little easier to bare. I would like to wish you all a wonderful Valentines. Stay safe and know that you are not alone and if you ever want to talk we can chat in the comments down below.
