Welcome to this year's coffee-fuelled, rule-breaking, kick-a** Valentine's Day* Nerd Church post!
(Those who read last year's post will know (sort of) what's ahead - those who didn't, hold on darlings, Cee's about to get on her soapbox, and possibly end up sharing TMI. But that's what she does.)
*Yes, I'm aware that it's not Valentine's Day until Wednesday. I'm doing my post now. Because I'm a rebel.
This year I've decided that Valentine's Day is for self-love.
(No, not like that! Not that there's anything wrong with that - natural urges and all that, it's just not what I meant! But I'm not judging. Lol.)
Let's face it - we get enough sh** about what we *should* be doing and what we *should* want out of life, relationships, etc. etc. etc.
So if you're single this Valentine's - or hell, even if you're not, no judgement here - why not throw their expectations to the ever-loving wind, and decide to just enjoy yourself?
Make it a day that's just for you. Self-care. Self-love. Taking care of you.
Some of us may never find someone. Some of us don't want to. Some of us are busy, or dealing with other stuff, or just getting out of a relationship, or whatever.
We all deserve happiness. We all deserve love (not necessarily of the romantic kind - that might not be your thing, and that's perfectly fine.) We all deserve to feel valued - even if it's just by ourselves.
Also - who knows what's around the corner? You may never get to enjoy another Valentine's Day where you're single!
And that means you can't buy all the heart cupcakes for *yourself* and watch ridiculous films and reality TV all day with a cup of coffee in your hands!!!
You might not even have time for a ridiculously decadent bath with a stack of magazines!
(These are just ideas, obviously - do whatever you want!)
So why not enjoy it? No, seriously, why don't we f**king enjoy it's brains out!
The only reason not to enjoy it is because society tells us that to be happy on Valentine's Day, we need to be in a relationship.
It tells that single people on Valentine's day are either a) cynical, b) miserable, or c) both. And f**k that sh**! No-one tells ME what to do!!!
I have enough trouble being happy in general (not 'cos I'm single - 'cos I have depression and anxiety,) so I'm not gonna let any chance pass me by!
Move aside world, this Valentine's Day is OURS!
