As a vulnerable, emotional girl, Valentine’s Day has never meant much to me and this year will be no exception. With no boyfriend, chances are that I will end up sitting home by myself watching the same movie that I have seen a hundred times, eating take-out and a carton of ice cream. So why should I care about such a stupid holiday?

As I started to think about Valentine’s Day, I became upset; thinking about all of my friends who recently got engaged, and everyone who has someone for the holiday, but why should I be? No one should need a significant other on a holiday to have a good time. Valentine’s Day should be a day where you think about everyone you love, not just the typical spouse or significant other.

This Valentine’s Day, I am going to think of everyone, rather than just a person that I like. I challenge you to do the same thing. Now for you people that are in a relationship, don’t get me wrong, it’s a great thing, but stay humble. There is no need to make a big deal over a holiday, when you should love your significant other just as much every other day. For those that aren’t in a relationship, like me, make this holiday count and show the ones around you that you love them and appreciate them.

Make this Valentine’s Day the best one yet. After all, it’s just a holiday.
