All right all you lovers, Valentine’s Day is less than a week away. Feeling the pressure?
What should be a simple holiday encouraging us to love one another has turned into a Big Deal, with sky-high expectations of chocolates, flowers, jewelry, romantic dinners in fancy restaurants, and the perfect partner with whom to share it all.
I’d like a reset, please.
On Friday, I’ll address the angst of facing a couples holiday in a state of singleness. Today is for those currently in a relationship.
With all the Valentine’s Day hype, I have to ask—how realistic are our expectations? Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate and consider what it is we really want. Are chocolates and flowers our goal? Maybe, what we really desire is to be desired. To have our special someone say once again, “I love you.”
