The Great Valentine’s Day Myth

WITH LOVE,dragthepen.wordpress.com

Here we go again. Another Valentine’s Day or as I call it a day for SUCKERS. Valentine’s Day is a day for some women to hold men hostage for “A RING”. A few women will receive roses, that will dry up and die just like the relationship they are in. The majority of women who get excited on Valentine’s Day, due so because this is the only day out of an entire  year when their partner will express love towards them.

My hope for women on this Valentine’s Day is for them to know their own worth, and stop measuring how someone else sees their value. Women of all ages must understand the value of self-love rather than waiting for someone to show love to them. You are more precious than any DIAMOND RING. You have a beauty that Surpasses the life of any ROSE. Don’t buy into the myth that Valentine’s Day is that one special day to show your loved. The Bible says that” Love is patient, Love is kind, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, always perverse. ( 1 Corn 13:4-7) NIV. LOVE DOESN’T LAST JUST FOR ONE DAY.

    I thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. We all love the Valentines Candy and there is nothing wrong with having a little wine, as long as you understand that you can have candy and wine any time during the YEAR.

    I used to think it the same way you do. I changed my mind after a few Valentines with my husband. Let me explain why:

    You don’t have to look only at the consumerism aspect, but to what it means to millions of people. A lot of people say: “You should not show “Love” on February 14th”…. ” you should love your partner everyday”….. etc. So if that was the case, you wouldn’t celebrate anniversaries, and birthdays, etc.
    Who says that two partners don’t show love to them every day? Valentine’s day is just another “anniversary” of love for those who love each other. One doesn’t need to spend hundreds to show love. But why not make a homemade dinner for your partne
    r and conclude it with passion? Wouldn’t that be a perfect Valentine’s day?

    I love this because you show the reality of this as I would call it Hallmark holiday. I, happy women as yourself understand that these holidays are simply a cop out for being affectionate for the other 364 days of the years. You should go on the hunt for Suckers Day of 2016 and interview other couples who seem to be celebrating amd really analyze thier feelings.

    I loathe Valentine’s Day. It is commercialised and nothing more than an excuse for flower sellers to hike up the price of roses and Hallmark to make a butt load of money from selling cards that should be recycled but will likely be trashed. Why do you have to wait for 14th February to tell someone that you love them? Surely you can do that any time of the year?
