Sure, having a valentine is great and all, but so is being alone. If you aren’t happy with yourself, you won’t be happy with someone else. Being in a relationship can sometimes act as a crutch for people who are insecure about themselves. But the great thing about being on your own is you can focus on yourself and figuring out what YOU like. Everything you do is for yourself, every decision you make isn’t impacted by someone else. You aren’t constantly wondering what your significant other thinks about how you act or dress.
Being single is about finding yourself, and I think everyone should embrace that. The more you know and learn about yourself, the more independent and confident you will feel. You won’t be impacted by the jerks of the world and you won’t let yourself settle for less than you deserve.
If you’re out there and valentine-less, embrace it! Because there is nothing wrong with being alone. Happy Valentine’s Day!
