Valentine’s day is upon us and I just wanted to say that I think this holiday is way more destructive and sad than anything positive. My wife and I don’t even celebrate Valentine’s day which I happen to believe is the best rule in our entire marriage. Why put pressure on yourself to show a person how much you love them on one day of the year? You’re just setting yourself up for failure. It’s that simple.
And for those that aren’t in a relationship? How about one day of the year to remind them of how lonely they are. Yeah, that’s really nice. I liken Valentine’s Day to New Year’s Eve. It’s just another excuse for restaurants to charge more and make a big deal out of something that’s literally just another day in the year.
However, when I came across these honest Valentine’s Day cards it gave me hope. If more of these existed I think I could get behind Valentine’s Day a bit more. Enjoy!
