Loving and being loved is life’s greatest pleasures. Yet out of all the insecurities, one integral one is the doubt that our loved ones will leave us and we are left alone making sense of the absence. That’s what Valentine’s day is for. To declare our love without feeling apologetic, or without the fear that we will look like a fool while we’re at it. The red roses, the late night dinners, the surprise call, and the numerous ‘I love you’ were constructed because we needed it. To soothe the most vulnerable parts of ourselves, by the person who means the most to us in the world. Anyway, what’s not pleasant about a quiet time with the person we love most in the world? So, Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s a great feeling in the world to be alive and in love.
