Hey everyone! Be sure to check out my guest post I did today on Classic+Glam for Halle!
So Valentines Day is here and I am celebrating it sans boyfriend. But I'm not upset about it! In fact I'm thrilled that I get to celebrate it with the people I really love!
But ever since it turned New Years it seems like everyone has been talking about the Day of Love and how they are spending it single or with their special someone. It seems to be there is a huge negative connotation around being single.
What I want to know is, what's so wrong with single?? Why is it that we feel like failures because we don't have significant others just yet?
Well I am here to tell you that it is ok to be single! (It's ok to be in a relationship too.)
We are taught our whole lives that we are the best at everything. In every sport we get a trophy or rewarded just for participating. Our parents tell us we can be whatever we want to be. The problem is someone we grow up and this "coddling" stops. But we don't know how to deal with it.
Not being the best or the same or having a boyfriend doesn't mean we have failed. It's just life and we shouldn't feel like we have done anything wrong because of it.
So this Valentines Day, if you are spending it single then live it up and celebrate all those special people you love like your family and friends or maybe your puppy.
When you stop looking for love it will find you so start living your life without worrying about your relationship status!
