Why is Valentine’s day always associated with your boyfriends, girlfriends or spouses? Isn’t this the day of love? So why do you have to limit expressing our love to only that one person. You may say because they are ‘special’ – Ok! Agreed they are special! So isn’t your mum special? Isn’t your cat special? Isn’t your best friend with whom you have a platonic relationship special? Aren’t kids in the orphanage who have no family special?
Valentine’s Day is considered as a lovely day to express your love, and we should try not to stick to please that one person. You need to share the love with everyone that is special to you. “How do I walk up to my father randomly & say ‘I love you’? That’s gonna be awkward” – if your not the ‘expressing with words’ type then you have so many other ways to express your love. For instance, hold that door for a few more seconds for someone, offer an act of kindness, write a note for your little sibling, make coffee for your colleague, give a compliment to someone, tell a good joke or a bad one.Its simple things in life that makes people happy & if you are in any which way a reason for that happiness that alone will increase the love for you in their hearts! Be that reason this Valentine’s Day and bring that beautiful change. It would cost you nothing but make a huge difference!
P.S: don’t forget to send flowers to your loved ones ocassionally & not just on Valentine’s!
