Valentine’s Day, a day dedicated to those who love. I’m among those who have never found Valentine’s Day so fascinating. I believe that one doesn’t need any specific day to tell their significant other how special they are. When you’re in love, everyday is and should be equally special. But since almost everything has a special day to mark them, may be Valentine’s Day is no different.
I do not mean to say that I am completely against the idea of Valentine’s Day. Love is a very beautiful feeling. If falling in love is a scoop of your favorite ice-cream, the feeling of being loved back by someone you love is a chocolate brownie with it. Seeing two people madly in love makes me very happy. What makes me happiest is when the two loving hearts reach their goal and get married. I wish every early twenties baby-babu’s relationship ends up becoming Mr. & Mrs <insert name>.
It’s so sad when two people who love have to part. Circumstances play their role in parting two people and it’s not fair. You love someone, you share all your dreams, start imagining a future with them, kneel down in front of every statue you have faith in, praying they always remain in your life. But what happens in the end? Those who promised they’d always stay, leave the earliest. Why? Its either pressure from the family, one cheating on the other, lies or some lame misunderstanding that leads to breaking up of the relationship that you treasured for so long. Whatever the reason may be, it leads to a very bad heartbreak. At least one of the two involved ends up being so heartbroken, they fear trusting anyone else again. It’s sad how a person, who once loved their heart out, has no faith in love anymore.
This article is dedicated to all those beautiful souls who’ve had their heart broken once in their life or are going through one at this time. It is a tribute to those who have loved to the fullest at one point of time and now fear commitment.
Today, you’ve seen many people post pictures celebrating this special day with their loved ones. And this must have hurt you, or made you feel bad. But remember, Valentine’s Day is about making the person who loves you the most feel special. Make yourself your Valentine, take yourself on a date. I say this with experience, there is no better feeling than pampering yourself with all the love you’ve once invested on someone else. If you have had the potential to make another person feel so good, you definitely deserve to be pampered back equally. Don’t wait for someone else to come pamper you, do it by yourself. It’s about time; don’t rush into a relationship because all your friends have a boyfriend/girlfriend. Wait for the right person to come, because perfect is just a phoney.
Collect all your shattered pieces and make a beautiful art out of you. Love others unconditionally. But first, love yourself the most. Make yourself a priority, because at the end of the day, you are your longest commitment.
