What People Do When They Don’t Really Love You

“When someone loves you, you will know it” 🙂

I try to lace my work with optimism because a guiding principle in my own life has been that the most tragic things in our lives almost always precede the most incredible.

I do not perch on a high horse preaching this, because I have been in those depths, and I know what it’s like. I also know that there are few issues that will destroy you faster than matters of the heart. But what I must tell you is that while teaching myself to climb out of that sadness and attachment-laden-misery, I realized something that is a bit more realistic than optimistic, but so invariably true that it’s worth giving attention to.

Maraming maraming salamat po sa lahat ng tulong ninyo sa naapektuhan ng bagyong Haiyan.

So why does our society function on the premise that to be single is to be lonely, and to be alone on Valentine’s Day is to be rejected or unloved in some intrinsic way? As someone who has been alone on every Valentine’s Day since eighth grade, I can say with certainty that I have never felt that my value as a person is somehow diminished because I am not receiving a heart-shaped box of chocolates and red roses from someone I may or may not actually care about.
