Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I already see people preparing for it, to make it as perfect as they can. It frazzles me, I'm not one who's with the concept that you should give one day more importance than the rest of the year all because society has made it that way. Society has set an impossible set of standards for Valentine's Day, people usually harm themselves in the process of trying to live up to those expectations. Here are six things NOT to do on Valentine's Day. Let's begin.
6. Don't stress yourself out
Okay so you want to make sure it's a special day for the two of you, that's understandable, just don't stress yourself out in the process. Some people plan their "special day" months before it actually happens, and they slowly keep stressing themselves out in the process. It's supposed to be a romantic day, keep it that way. Don't forget your happiness in the process of making that day more perfect than ever.
5. Don't be someone else that day
Some people get extremely romantic on Valentine's Day and then go back to being their normal selves as soon as it's over, because they want to live up to that day and not to their individual selves and their personalities. Be yourself on Valentine's Day, be the person you are and will always be, don't try to be more than you are, don't try to do more than you already do, don't change for one day.
4. Don't make it more important than the relationship
Some people make Valentine's Day more important than the rest of the year which means they make it more important than the relationship itself. It's just one day, make it special, don't give that one day more importance than the rest of the year. Sure, you can go out of your way to make it as special as you want it to be, but as long as it doesn't become more important than the relationship itself.
