So I’ve decided to sit this one out. Seven years running was just overwhelmingly exhausting and to be honest, I was just getting sick of being ridiculously in love. WHO ON EARTH WANTS THAT EVERY GOD DAMN YEAR?!
A cute card with really, really nice things inside? Umm… Why? I hate being told how much I mean to someone. Chocolate on wake up? Spare me. Give me Weet Bix with milk any day of the week. And if you think I’m lying, well I am god dammit, I flippin’ am!!!!
This year has started out as an absolute cracker, as you know! I truly am kicking goals. I like to think of it as ‘I’m really growing as a person’ every time something shit happens to me. Now I don’t want to make out that I am just whinging and whining here but what are the chances that you wake up single on Valentines Day AND you’re greeted with your period. Just let that sink in a little bit, because that’s exactly what it’s done to my bed sheets. I’m currently sitting on the other side of the bed of course, writing this in my super absorbent, hypo-allergenic, breathable overnight maxi-pad. Oh but wait, it also says MAXIMUM COMFORT! Maybe it’s not so bad after all because damn I’m comfy! (Cheers Cottons, always got my back)
Now don’t mistake me for someone who hates this day dedicated to love. I truly think it’s great! Future husband if you’re reading this; I’m not hard to please but I LOVE nice gestures in the form of cards, chocolate, movies, walks on the beach, trips to the Greek Islands just to name a few… I have so many friends who are just so ridiculously in love and as much as the jealous bitch in me wants to rear it’s ugly head, at this particular time in my life I really am so happy for them. There’s so much hate in this world it shouldn’t be frowned upon celebrating couples, friendships and the important people in our lives.
If you just so happen to be freshly single like me, or even just single generally, then today you might not be enjoying it so much and that’s OK. The constant loved-up photos with the hashtags #imtheluckiestgirlintheworldmyboyfriendlovesmesomuchitkillsmeahhhh might be getting a little annoying yeah? Well never fear because theres only about 10 hours left and we’ve made it this far! KEEP GOING!
If you are the loved up couple, just know that you are so incredibly lucky. There was nothing I loved more than being in love with my best friend. I miss the feeling all too much and I’m not angry seeing your post, I’m not actually hating on you for being in love; I’m just a little sad that its not me too. I wish I could tell you to love and soak up every minute because it can be taken from you in an instant. I’m sure there are a lot of people out there with many different circumstances wanting that same love but for whatever reason can’t have it, so just know that you are loved in life, in so many different forms. Your friends, your family, your work colleagues, your team mates, these are all the people who love you too! They’re just rude and didn’t get us anything to show for it today…! HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
