In a day where everyone seems to be deeply in love, some has aroused to define principles and traditions. When hearts seem to be all over the place and couples seem to be in every corner, hear this: IT’S OKAY TO BE SINGLE ON VALENTINE’S DAY!!!!!
Wherever there’s yin there’s yang, which simply means that whenever people are falling deeply in love some are falling out of it or just not falling at all. Being single on Valentine’s Day has always been an issue that is over-rated forcing people to feel depressed or less worthy somehow. The dilemma is, do you really need someone to feel worthy of love?! Is one day enough to feel love in 365 days?! Is love a day or a life-time story?! Is it a gift and a word or an action and a hug?! Is it one type or a thousand or maybe even a million types?! If one day is not enough, if it’s a life-time story, if it’s an action and a hug, if it has a thousand types then being single on Valentine’s day is perfectly FINE. Some people may feel insecure about being the single one in a group full of couples but the fact that you haven’t found the love of your life just yet shouldn’t make you feel anxious, LOVE ISN’T IN THE AIR SO IT’S NOT EASY TO FIND.
Shakespeare defined love in his sonnet 116 saying “Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove. O no! It is an ever-fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken; it is the star to every wand’ring bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle’s compass come; love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom”. By his words I stand saying that love is timeless so it can’t be a day for you to feel not worthy of it, love is unmeasurable so not getting a gift doesn’t mean that someone out there doesn’t love you, love is not physical beauty so not being told that you are breath taking on the 14th of February doesn’t mean that you are not prettier than a star and last but not least love is unreasonable so it can come from anywhere and anyone not just a life partner or a lover. Be single and be happy about it, be single and strong, be single and independent and finally be single and poetic because definitely you are not alone.
All in all, “If this be error and upon me prov’d, I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d”-Shakespeare. In other words, If I am proved wrong about these thoughts on love or in this case being single on Valentine’s day, then I recant all that I have written, and no man has ever [truly] loved or understood Valentine’s day.
