I have always rejected the cheesy, retail fueled Valentine’s Day that our society has embraced because I think love is so much more.
Yet I do understand how we have gotten to this place of an abundance of stuffed animals, heart shaped boxes of chocolates and a rose or two.
Women need to be loved.
It is part of their DNA and hoards of books and bible studies are written to reflect that.
I guess we should have a respect day for the men? They deserve a holiday that forces us women to find new ways to show our man how much we respect them. But I digress, back to my point.
If women don’t feel loved, their ability to love ( and more importantly, respect) their significant other is reduced. What a catch 22 we end up in. Yikes.
So Valentine’s Day gives men a chance to catch up really. To make sure that the women they love know they are loved. It definitely buys them time. Gives them a few months of ignoring her again until another trip to the florist is required in order to make her feel loved again.
Not an ideal situation.
Wouldn’t it be better to make sure you find ways to love or respect your significant other on a daily basis?
I can think of a million ways to do so, but more importantly it should be more than an item on a list to make you feel better about yourself. The desire to express to them your undying love should be just as important to you, knowing it’s important to them.
Your woman needs to know that she is your biggest priority. That you think of her often and know her worth in your eyes, that there could be no other woman but her.
Candy, flowers, cards; those are all nice but try to tell them you love them everyday.
Send a text everyday that says ” you are all I think about”
Send her a love song and tell her why it makes you think of her.
Write her a love letter a couple times a year and actually send it to her.
When you get home from work draw her a bath and take the kids to the park.
Show your love more than once a year.
It’s not that hard.
