Valentines Day is drawing close and it is safe to breathe

With Valentines Day rapidly approaching, people everywhere undoubtedly find themselves searching for something special for their significant other. So what about those who find themselves alone this holiday? While some are out shopping for gifts, others are actually shopping for that someone significant to fill that role in their lives. With the holiday looming around the corner, for those without a date, stress and pressure may be all that is encasing their holiday.

While love and companionship may be the strongest of all human desire, it is not always the most important. The previous statement is not at all meant to reduce the significance of love, or a day observed in its celebration. However, this annual pressure/temporary depression is vastly uncalled for.
Valentines Day, or the celebration of love, is only celebrated because somebody once declared it should be. Whether or not it holds great importance in your life is up to you. However, one should consider this fact when deciding just how important the day really is. When the genuine issue is finding someone to spend time with, deadlines and pressure have to drop out of the equation.

So even if you find yourself alone this Valentines Day, make it a point to look up. Practice optimism, an attitude in dire need of adoption by all. Once it is understood that love is not rushed, everyone can relax a bit. Because once you do find that someone special, you won’t need a specific date of celebration, rather you celebrate each other each and every day.
