My Thoughts on Valentines Day - FriendshipHello deviants, friends, and family.More Like This
After a horrible recent breakup in which I was repeatedly lied to, threatened, and cheated on, my thoughts on Valentines day have changed. I now believe that Valentines day is not a time for those in love to endorse that once again, there is no reason you should have to "re-endorse" such a thing with chocolates or flowers. Instead, it is a time to reach to those around you. Your friends. Your family. Tell them that you love them. Remind them that you are there for them.
And that is what I wish for you all today.
To those of you who know me personally, either in real life, or from deviantART, you know I am here for you, and I am so honored to have you all as friends.
To those of you I know less well, this next year, I want to know you better. Come say hi, drop me a message! I am so happy to be in a community where friendship is only a few clicks away, no matter where you're from or who you are.
Thank you, to all of my valentin
I LOVE YA! | Giveaway! *WINS*+FeatureI like to think Valentine's Day is for everyone. Be you single or with a partner, Love is an integral part of humanity. Let Valentine's Day be a reminder to love.. you. You can not truly love another until you have first loved yourself. Buy yourself a flower or some chocolates (regardless of someone else will or not). You are beautiful. You are unique!More Like This

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.
