happy valentine's day! and don't stop reading if you're bitter about today. all day i've heard about how everyone hates this holiday and hate all the posts about it. i don't remember ever feeling that way about today. i understand that it's a little ridiculous to have a specific day to show your love when you should everyday, or it's ridiculous to feel obligated to buy something for your SO. but that's not how it should be. celebrate because you want to, buy stuff because you want to. and valentine's day should not just about romantic love. what about platonic love? what about the love you have for your family? celebrate love! eat chocolate! buy yourself a flower and stick your nose into it! treat yourself to a nice bath! be soft! be kind! don't make others feel bad because they made a post to express their love for their SO, or because they got flowers, or whatever you're bitter about. happy valentine's day. celebrate or suck it up.
