Valentine’s Day 2019: The Beginning of the Day

For some reason, Valentine’s Day is hitting me hard this year. Yes, I’m single, but it has not bothered me before.  I remember last year that my dog was my Valentine. I think he will be that again this year. Fortunately, I think some strategies will help me get through it this year: 

  1. Medicines: I will take my medicines, thank you, and move on.
  2. Bask in Others’ Love: This has helped me before.
  3. No Alcohol: People have used alcohol to cope with singlehood and loneliness before, but in my case, I fear I will take it much too far. Besides, I need to deal with my feelings head on.
  4. Don’t Believe the Hype: I wonder how many people will end up sleeping on the couch due to a fight tonight? A day for romance can take place at any time of the year.  

Hopefully, these stratagems will help. I will report the results later on.
