Many people have told me that it is not okay sending ✉ Valentine's cards to friends, telling them that you love and appreciate them, telling your ex that you are thankful that you have met and faced this world as a unit for a while 🙏 and sending them some flowers or candy, and GOD FORBID giving a card to your boss / colleagues 😟 ...
How can you not love the people who made you who you are though? 🧐 Unless your ex was a serial killer, or boss has a cognitive dissonance with the thought he/she can be an inspiring and kind human being on top of a good professional... you should be fine. 🆗️ You have learned something new about yourself from them, your standards and preferences. This is 💎 valuable 💎. Isn't this enough of a reason to celebrate and thank that person?
Why does everyone have a conniption when someone expresses appreciation and says nice things about them on any other 📅 364 days a year that is not a their birthday?? Why does our brain automatically go into "hmm... what is this person's TRUE intention? 🤔 They must want something from me..."
🆘️ WTF DO THEY WANT?! 🆘️
Oddly, it doesn't occur to us that someone who is not family can just appreciate us for being "US". Appreciate us for a cheerful smile 🤪 and a joke on a gloomy Wednesday morning and being honest that dress your friend wanted to buy for a wedding made her look like a clown 🤡.
Don't be afraid to love yourself and others, and of course, please tell them about it! 💖 It's free and makes both people feel worthy and complete 😉
