Te deseo, Cariño (a Valentine's Day letter from me to me)

Everyone around you is celebrating today.

It’s okay.

Everyone around you is with someone.

It’s okay.

They’re publicly showing their happiness, and that’s okay.

A there are two kinds of love:

The love you have for another, and the one you can have for yourself.

When you’re in a relationship with someone, the love goes to them,

But when you’re single, circulate that love back to yourself.

Send yourself flowers.

Buy yourself a present or a cocktail.

Celebrate Valentine’s day,

In your own special way.

    Can make sense, I suppose, if not from an entirely selfish motive. Nice write Niall.
