Looking for positive quotes about being single on Valentine’s?
Another year is here, and you promised yourself you wouldn’t be single. But you are.
As if the cold winters weren’t bad enough, Valentine’s day is here and you’re feeling cold as hell… on the inside.
Too many bad dates and maybe none at all, but either way, I think that we can all agree that being single on Valentine’s kinda sucks.
You wonder, what is it about this day that causes your confidence in yourself to evaporate? Leading up to February 14th, you feel self-conscious, singled out (no pun intended) and on edge. You think, “does anyone notice that you’re single (yet again)?”
Seriously, what is it about being single on Valentine’s Day that makes us feel so insecure? It makes us feel unworthy, unloved and just left out.
Of course, we all want flowers, dinner dates, and boxes of chocolates. Who doesn’t want the best valentine’s day gifts? We may be feminists, but we’re not monsters. Okay, that’s enough feeling sorry for ourselves (yes, I’m single too, but who cares!)! It’s time to snap out of it!
For one, you are amazing, spectacular, and simply stunning! Your relationship status has absolutely NOTHING to do with your worth or your value. Really and truly, it’s no more special than your political status. Unlike you, who is all sorts of special.
You are a unicorn! Believe it, embrace it and hold your head high, even if you’re single on Valentine’s Day! It’s by and large a commercial holiday, and has no real value. The history of Valentine’s Day reveals its roots may lie in a pagan fertility festival.
For two, you don’t need anyone else to tell you how special you are (yes it’s nice), but buy yourself chocolate, pamper yourself or treat yourself to something nice. Better yet, get your friends together and celebrate Galentine’s Day!
To help you embrace being single, here are 29 inspirational quotes about being single on Valentine’s Day that you need to read.
