There are worse things
I completely passed V-day by because I had nothing good to say about it. I never had anything good to say about it, single or attached. But I had the occasion to speak to several friends on the subject, some of whom aren’t quite as happily single as I am.
There are worse things than being single all your life, or even being single, contrary to popular opinion. It is realising that you’ve been wasting your life on the wrong people. It is realising you’ve put your heart on the line, your time and energy, taken on emotional baggage, with people who don’t deserve it.
Of course, all relationships end at one point or another. There is no such thing as forever love, and there is certainly no relationship where you are happy 100% of the time. But when you realise that this is not how people treat each other usually, that you did deserve much better, when the bad memories eclipse the intangible good ones, that being single is so much more better than being in a relationship and feeling completely alone and unappreciated…
And when you realise that, that’s the worst feeling of all.
