Ah, Valentine’s Day.
February 14this either a treasured day or a dreaded day for you. As a woman who was once chronically single, I can tell you that I understand what it is like when it’s a dreaded day.
Suddenly, there are hearts and flowers everywhere. You see people posting adorable photos on social media, you see cute couples out to dinner, and you hear people confessing their love for one another… it can definitely make you feel lonely. But it is important to remember that you simply haven’t reached that phase of life yet.
Being single on Valentine’s Day does not mean that you will always be alone.
Being single on Valentine’s Day does not mean that you are less than.
Being single on Valentine’s Day does not mean that you can’t still celebrate the holiday.
Being single on Valentine’s Day does not mean that you are not loved.
Being single on Valentine’s Day does not have to be a big deal.
You cannot compare your life to another person’s. It’s easy to do, but shouldn’t be done. The couples you see on Valentine’s Day are at a specific chapter in their life, and it’s okay if you are not in that chapter yet. Don’t worry – God is looking at you right now and saying, “I’m saving her for someone special”.
So, instead of feeling badly on Valentine’s Day because you don’t have a significant other at the moment, choose to celebrate the people in your life that you love. Celebrate family love, friendship love, co-worker love, and more! Valentine’s Day is a day about love. It’s okay if you don’t have a significant other – you can still celebrate the love that you do currently have in your life. Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to celebrate any and all kinds of love!
And there’s always the fun, added bonus that you can buy food in the shape of a heart! I mean, how cute is that?
And remember: you have a good, good Father who loves you.
“God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
