Me on the outside:
Me on the inside:
So, I got through another Valentine’s Day. This is the thought occupying my mind right now. I got through another day of fake affection, red-pink love expressed in candy and chocolate and flowers, and loved-up looks between the people I know. I also got through another day where none of these emotions were directed at me.
I always thought I was just fine without a partner. I was fine not experiencing romance and love the way others get to experience it. I thought I was fine just being by myself. And I was happy to see my friends and family enjoy each other on this day that was manufactured to make them consume a little more in the dreary grey hours of a single day in February.
But I realized recently that my wish for independence and freedom is beginning to cost me. Life is getting more difficult without a partner’s support. I’m feeling more alone at home after spending long hours at work surrounded by people. After almost twenty-seven years of independence and self-reliance (or at least ten of those years), I am beginning to miss romance and silly celebrations like today’s celebrations.
I don’t want to be bitter, but I think I might be turning a little bit bitter every day.
