What Is Love?

Standard

One more day crossed off the calendar. Yesterday is not a day I care to remember. Sometimes, things are stacked against you and the day just needs to pass you by. What I do know though is, I would rather look back on a year of love and support from someone than have one day out of the year where someone makes me feel important. It’s hard to be on que because someone says this is the day to be in love; this is the day to send flowers and chocolates. It almost seems disingenuous. On the other hand, if you don’t do something to make that person feel at least acknowledged and appreciated, the result could cause damage that may never be repaired. Everyone needs love. Everyone needs to feel loved and wanted and appreciated. The question is, do we do the same for others? Do we make them feel loved? Sometimes it’s necessary to take a step out of yourself and look into that big, bad mirror of truth. It may even hurt sometimes. What is love to you? How do you show it?

  1. In short, you are torn on how to feel about Valentine’s Day. Try to hang onto the part that feels it’s just one day to express love/affection when you have a whole year to do that if you really care. In my opinion, it’s more of a holiday for those chasing love than those who have it in their daily lives. Once you have the love of your life, flowers should be grown at home. Not picked up from some store. Chocolates become something you share on the couch with your routine TV show or movie nights. There is no big surprise or goal to presenting them. That’s more of a dating thing.

    So, do not feel damaged or disappointed. It is not as important as your birthday. [Which certain people forget.]

    I think I make more of an effort to please others than I please myself. Yet, when I create romantic/sexy imagery, it seems geared toward my fantasies and doesn’t appeal to others as much.
