I know Valentines Day can be challenging because you are single, your relationship is on the rocks, or the pain from the break up is still fresh and there is no joy on this day for you, but use this day to celebrate the love that God has placed inside your heart and remind yourself how strong you are despite all that tried to break you.
“Nobody loves me. Something must be wrong with me because I am single once again on Valentines Day.”
“I hate myself. I am such a LONER”
“Everyone seems so happy but me.”
“Why can’t I be in a relationship like everyone else on Valentines Day.”
Do not allow this day to make you feel sad. Don’t feel ashamed because you are the only one in your friend group that is single. Or, you may have just walked out of a relationship and you are used to spending it with them all these years. I know Valentines Day can be challenging because you are single, your relationship is on the rocks, or the pain from the break up is still fresh and there is no joy on this day for you, but use this day to celebrate the love that God has placed inside your heart and remind yourself how strong you are despite all that tried to break you. Use this day to celebrate the love that you have given out to friends, family, strangers and yourself. Don’t allow this day to rob you of your peace and joy. Stop comparing your life to every couple on social media. Stop thinking that you would be happier if you were in a relationship. Stop wanting what everyone has. God has someone specially designed just for you. He has someone that will be able to love you despite your flaws and shortcomings, but you have to be still and stand on his word.
Do something special on Valentines Day. Go to the park, beach, watch some Netflix or walk around the city and take pictures. There are so many single people in the world, and you are not the only one. I bet you have single friends too! Have a social distance meet up with one of your friends. Make a bucket list and do all the things you love to do, and if you can’t find someone do those things with then do them yourself. God has brought you too far in your emotions to sit around, sulk and feel sorry for yourself. Celebrate how much stronger you are ever since the pandemic. Celebrate that you are alive, healthy and doing your best to hold it together.
So next time you have a sad thought hold your head up high, smile and lift up your hands and begin to thank God for another year of life. You deserve so much on Valentines Day. Go to your favorite bakery, buy yourself some chocolates, brownies and flowers. Hug your loved ones, and Facetime those that you haven’t called in awhile, you may get emotional and cry but let them know how much you love and appreciate them. Please do not sell yourself short this Valentines Day, but instead celebrate life and love. JESUS LOVES YOU!
