How To Not Let Valentine’s Day Stress You Out

Whether you are in a relationship or not, the greatest gift you can give yourself and/or your relationship on this day is to set yourself free from other people’s definition of Valentine’s Day. This is how to not let Valentine’s Day stress you out!

This day can definitely be one of the hardest days to resist comparing yourself to other people. You see people sharing the various ways they are celebrating on social media and it’s easy to start evaluating your relationships and your self-worth based on one day. Too many people get depressed or anxious due to comparison on this day. Some people even feel inadequate because they are not in a relationship at the moment. 

Over the years, I’ve had to learn to take control of how I define true love, romance, and how I celebrate it on this day. It’s easy to succumb to the temptation to evaluate your relationship or worth based on one day. But, please, do not do it!

Valentine’s Day does not define you or your relationship. 

There are no laws that say you have to celebrate Valentine’s Day a certain way—or even at all. It is a human-made holiday! It does not carry any force of nature with it and does not define your destiny. So, although it’s hard to refrain from comparison to others, try it anyway!

If you are celebrating today, do it the way you want. If you are not celebrating, be confident in that choice. And, if you are single, try your best to not feel inadequate; it really is just another day of the week. If you recently went through a breakup, I’ve written another post with some tips on how to not let that temporary pain break you.

At the end of the day, do not let Valentine’s Day stress you out. Spread love, give love, and love yourself every day.
