It was quite difficult for me to write this Valentine’s Day blog. I was divorced in May after 23 years of marriage. When thinking about the 23 years I was married, I realized finding the real love that makes your heart happy was like being dealt a royal flush. I decided a card game wasn’t a perfect description of love, so I searched the internet for types of love.
I ran across an article on the PopSugar titled: Why Being Single on Valentine’s Day Is the Best. I must admit that it made sense even if you’re happily married. Sometimes you just want to skip this day. You’ll still get to share your love and share it with others. You don’t have to force the issue of ‘who will decide who gets to decide’ what you’re going to do that day. You don’t have to feel guilty about doing what you want to do. Love yourself! I like these.
Still searching for what love means, the best description I found was from the site shown below. It includes a chart which you might want to study and think about. If you want detailed information, click on the link.
I’ve never had a love that was at the Center of the Triangle — EXCEPT in high school. I fell madly in love with “Him,” and he with me. That’s when we thought we were in the center of the triangle. I thought he was “The One.” According to the triangle, it was really just “Romantic Love.”
My love chart has always been a Circle. There’s no chart for a circle. Whew, that makes me feel better. I can put whatever I want in the center of the circle, and whatever is outside of it just goes around and around. They are interesting and confusing relationships. Each relationship is a different Circle — but none of them have achieved the Center of the Triangle.
You could be the one who makes your heart smile!
Happy Valentine’s Day no matter what kind of love you have or have had.
