Aaaahhh, aren't they cute!
Valentine's Day sucks.
Even when I was married, it wasn't my favorite day. Too much pressure.
What to get him? What will he get me? He better get me something. Even though I told him not to get me anything.
I've become more tolerant of it in the years since my divorce. At first, I was sad and mad. You better not let me see you getting flowers. I'll hate you the rest of the day.
Then my son started sending me flowers. What a good kid. It always cheered me up.
Then I started giving candy to the bartenders and servers at my hangout. Guess what? That made me feel even better.
Lessen for the day: Give something to somebody today. Show some appreciation. It doesn't have to be much and they don't have to be your significant other. Maybe a stranger could just use a hug.
Or go hug a tree if you're afraid of strangers.
