Today is Valentine’s Day and I wanted to share this with you. Honestly, I am surprised to read that a woman in this our modern generation. A generation that has been blown away by social media, fashion and whatever you can call it still have some people who are distinct! In fact, I should not have to waste any further time. Read for yourself to find out a different view and opinion of Moxie from her won diary (Moxie’s Diary).
Yesterday, my man knowing how much I like important dates, asked me, “babe, is Valentine’s Day very important to you?”, I said not really because I feel like people make a huge fuss about it; but I may appreciate a gift, and get you one too.
Thinking about it, why do we have to pick one day just to celebrate our lover. Is it like we don’t get them gifts every other day?
I mean that has always been my opinion about Val’s day since I “grew up”!
I take celebration of anniversaries more important than Val’s day.
And the competition of whose partner did the most — and some who go as far as lying that they were gifted when they weren’t. Why the pressure?
It’s been so many stories about the origin of Valentine’s Day; but the most popular, is that it originated as a Christian feast day honoring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine and, through later folk traditions, has become a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world, according to Wikipedia.
The major reason I stopped caring about Valentine’s Day is because of how people started judging the love their partner has for them on that day! It’s just so many expectations; and people get pressured from what others display online, and feel left out!
If all you get on Valentine’s Day is a love note written from the heart, it’s enough! There’s no rule that says your partner has to go out of their way to impress you so that you can post on social media!
I’m not sure I’ll take my man seriously if he only gifts me on Valentine’s Day! This is not to discourage anyone planning to get gifts for their partners — please go on! My point is, as tomorrow comes, express love the best way you can but do not pressure nor force anyone into doing what they don’t want to do. That’s not love!
People on social media don’t care! They’ll go about their business the next day, and forget about you, or what was given to you, or the gifts you faked, and posted!
While we show love to our partners, let’s also show love to everyone else who can’t afford anything, and our families who are struggling — because charity begins at home!
Happy Valentine’s Day, guys
