“There is no fear in Love”
Valentine’s Day is internationally celebrated on 14th February as a day of Love. People usually spend this day making their loved one’s feel special. Along the years, the way Valentine’s Day is celebrated has evolved from men sacrificing goats and women being whipped to a week long series of buying gifts and pampering.
The week is celebrated with Rose Day, Propose Day, Chocolate Day, Teddy Day, Promise Day, Hug Day, Kiss Day and finally, Valentine’s Day. The week depicts the important aspects of a relationship – Love, Communication, Care, Respect, Intimacy, Friendship, etc.
A relationship has many memorable moments from the time two people know each other to the time they fall in love and forever now. However, Valentine’s Day has become an overrated concept over the years. Most people have forgotten the real value of a relationship and emotions, and compromised it with a social life. For the sake of approval from the world, they tend to portray themselves as the ‘always in love and happy’ kind of relationship. That might look good, but it misguides many and creates a feeling of insecurity.
A real relationship doesn’t have to be smiles all the time. It’s going to have ups and downs, sometimes, it might even seem like a rollercoaster. But it depends on you, if you want to enjoy the thrill of that roller coaster with the person you’re with or fear the ride and cry (LOL).
In the rollercoaster of life, uncertainties and twists are bound to happen. The only way to be safe in it, is to wear the safety belt properly or incase you love taking risks you may skip that. You can always enjoy it alone and scream the way you want. But if at any time you fall or get injured, you will feel the need to have someone to pick you up. Think of that moment when you get into the ride with someone, you may fall a million times, and the person should be ready to pick you up and support you at that moment. You shouldn’t have to fear being abandoned. But, it’s not just him/her, even you should be ready to do that too. Unless you’re sure to do that, I suggest you take a pause and look at others screaming in the rollercoaster and have fun!
Celebrating your love once a year may or may not make a difference in your relationship, but celebrating it every step of the way, at every twist and turn, at those ups and downs will make your ride the best experience of your life. Be grateful to the person holding your hand or having your back, sometimes even without your own knowledge. Let them know what they mean to you.
Let’s celebrate this festival of Love and Care with the crazy people who are still on the roller coaster with us!
Happy Valentine’s Day Lovelies!
(P.S : If you feel you’re the only one on your crazy ride, don’t worry there is someone definitely crazier than you who wants to get on it! Till then love the crazy ride!)
