Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all!
Rather than post some more mushy crap on the internet this February 14th, I thought it would be more appropriate to give a shout-out to my fellow wallflowers.
A wallflower is defined as a person who has no one to dance with or who feels shy, awkward, or excluded at a party. #SAD
This holiday can be SO overwhelmingly bombarded by couples shoving their love in your face, it’s quite barf-tastic. I’m sure your Instagram and Facebook feeds are saturated with flowers, kissing photos, and other cringe-worthy pics like that.
And this is coming from a married gal.
Even though I’ve had a Valentine since 2016, I’d never had one before that.
So, I still identify with being that single wallflower because that’s how I’ve spent the majority of my life. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I love my alone time and as much as I LOVE traveling and adventures and meeting new folks, I need ME time to recharge. I’m an INTJ, what can I say!
Two years ago, I published this piece about my being a late bloomer. I’ve always been the wallflower of the bunch, not necessarily shy, but definitely quiet and more reserved.
Big group outings overwhelm me and I’ve always hated this phrase:
The more, the merrier!
SO not true!
Unless you’re talking about dogs.
Then, OF COURSE, the more the MUCH MUCH MUCH x 100 merrier.
ANYWAYS! For any fellow wallflowers feeling left out this Valentine’s Day, please don’t!
Take this day to practice self-love and treat yourself!
