Valentines Day is for suckers

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……..

What say you?

  1. I think that to say Valentine’s Day is a day for SUCKERS is not very loving. It is also dishonouring to those who celebrate it.
    Easter is the day or period set aside to celebrate and remember Jesus died and rose again. Christmas is a day set aside to celebrate and remember Jesus was born. Your birthday is a special day to remember you were born and celebrate you. It does not mean that people don’t remember and appreciate these things or who you are throughout the rest of the year.

  2. I haven’t liked Valentine’s Day since I was a child…not because I “didn’t have a husband or boyfriend to “show me I’m loved”, but because it has become so commercial. Do we really need a day to set aside to show how much we are loved? Can’t you show me that you love me any/every other day? Showing or telling someone that they are loved every day is more important than doing so on one day out of the year.
    On I side note, I got upset with my current boyfriend for buying me cut roses last year…buy me a potted plant that I can put in the ground or a pot. Or something I can keep “forever”. If you can’t do that, then just tell me…

  3. The idea that there should be a day to celebrate lovers is not what makes Valentine’s Day so shallow. It is the way that it is commercialised by playing, as you say, on women’s insecurities.
    Relationships are not battlefields, We don’t win by manipulation.

    If you truly love someone then Valentine’s Day is a beautiful thing.
