For Valentine’s Day last month my parents sent me this lovely card seen below. Along with the card’s connection to my chosen career path it is actually the saying at the bottom which speaks the most about me.
- It is a holiday created for the sole purpose of financial gain.
- You should be telling the people you love them every day, not only on Valentine’s Day.
- It is a holiday which makes you feel bad if you don’t have someone special to share it with.
All arguments that I can see the truth in, yet I still love the holiday. I only have one Valentine’s Day I remember spending with someone special. I have been single for all the rest. And from what I remember the Valentine’s Day where I actually had a boyfriend was probably my least favourite of them all. It wasn’t because we didn’t have a great day, or that he wasn’t a wonderful guy, to be honest I don’t really know why I didn’t have a great day that year. I think it had something to do with that the day held so much more pressure to be awesome when I actually had someone to spend it with. No one expects you to have a good time on February 14th if you aren’t attached.
I think it is safe to say that I am an outspoken person. I am known for speaking my mind, I tend to be very black and white in my thought processes and I love a good debate. Sometimes I even catch myself passionately standing up for the strangest of view points and wonder to myself, am I doing this because I believe in it, or am I just trying to prove a point? And maybe that’s why blogging scares me.
