Valentine’s Day, that one time a year that so many outwardly express their affection, and undying love for one another. Stores are littered with hearts, and red colored decorations, all the card stores are chock full of special ideas and plaques for loved ones. It is the busiest time of the year for any florist, no matter the cost or spread they are advertising.
While this is the norm for every February, there are those who are less fortunate, getting lost in the mix of the holiday. These are the people who have loved a lost one, either through someone passing away, or a dissolved relationship. No matter the cause, the pain is equally as devastating for anyone walking alone through any business district.
With all of the excitement and rushing to and fro, those who are alone get lost in the backdrop of the love-themed tradition. All of the passion and electric that fills the air can be enough to make anyone lonely begin to hate the holiday altogether. Comparatively to Scrooge, Valentine’s Day can seem like a taunting pain that doesn’t subside. Question is; can anyone recover when entering a new relationship?
Does the joy of a new love eliminate the pain from the previous heartache? Or will it harden someone’s heart from ever letting someone get that close again? This is a part of human interaction and reality of coexistence and relations. As the festival of love begins to fill the minds and hearts of the world, the right thing to do for others is to consider those who are not as fortunate to have a significant other to share it with.
The smallest token of affection and care can make the difference in somebody’s life, especially those who feel as if they have no one to share, or celebrate this holiday with. A measure of generosity and compassion just might be the turning point that will allow someone to believe in the power of love, and have faith in re-entering a relationship.
