Being Alone Doesn't Have To Mean Being Lonely


Well 2010 is here and while it's a new year, if you have issues with loneliness, the new year won't be any different unless you change your outlook.

The most lonely day of the year for many is Valentine's Day.  February 14th is a day where sweethearts everywhere express their love in a variety of ways....giving of gifts, going out on special dates etc.  But what if you don't have a sweetheart?  What if on the most romantic day of the year, you are alone?
Being alone doesn't mean you have to be lonely. Yes, Valentine's day is for lovers but the one person you should love more than any other human being on the earth is YOURSELF.

Where is it written that you have to go out on a date with someone else on February 14th or that you have to receive candies, flowers or other gifts from a lover?  I submit to you that you can be your own Valentine.  That may sound like fluff to some but who better to spend Valentine's Day with than the one person you know who will never leave you?

There are a number of thing single folks can do for Valentine's Day. Here are some ideas for you should you be one of them:
  • Take yourself to dinner and a movie (make it a comedy)
  • Get some pampering done (a massage, a manicure etc.)
  • Buy yourself flowers and put them on your coffee table to admire
  • Buy yourself something nice. No.  Something exquisite
  • Start a special project like writing your autobiography
Don't allow this year's Valentine's Day to get you all stressed out and feeling lonely if you are not in a relationship.  Your time will come.  We've all been there.
