Valentine's Day doesn't exist just to make single people
feel like crap. It can be a celebration of all sorts of lurve, from your best
friends (Galentine's Day!) to yourself. Also, have you seen
what restaurants and bars are like out there on V-Day? Ugh,
the worst! You don't want to be those people, anyway.
What you need is a movie
night, complete with feel-good films about interesting people who find happiness
their own way, whether that's baking pies, hanging out with gorillas, taking
off into the woods, starting punk rock riots, or just hanging out with their
besties. These aren't perfect protagonists. Although they do some tough
stuff, they're not "strong" or "fierce" or "badass."
They're human, and every human is worthy of love. That includes you. After all,
if you can't love yourself…
