We've all had our share of Valentine's Days, haven't we?
Some have been good.
Some have been ... well, not so good.
There can be this sense of dread that creeps in, if you aren't currently lock-step with the cultural expectation for over-the-top-romance on this day.
What society tells us is:
We're supposed to be in love.
We're supposed to be romantic.
We're supposed to be together.
We're supposed to be twin-flamed.
But none of this is real.
It's just a made-up story.
It doesn't reflect who we really are, at any given time in our lives.
On any given Valentine's Day, some of us will be celebrating with our Beloved, some of us will be estranged, some of us will be with friends or family, some of us will be alone .
There is no one way.
And all ways are valid.
I personally get so stressed out by the cultural expectations of Valentine's Day, that I don't really mark that day.
You can do whatever you want on February 14, too.
To my mind, the BIG LOVE we all share—our love as souls, our interconnection, the way we feel when our hearts are open to each other—is a way of celebrating love that brings true joy.
