I’m going to start this post by asking you all to take a moment and in unison think about all the people who set your soul on fire, enriching every second, every hour, every day of your life with their friendship? Remember those endless stomach cramps from laughing too much, the soul-baring nights you shared, the smile that comes to your lips when you remember their face, the drunken nights at a dim lit pub, or whatever you do. Those are the people you should be celebrating Val’s with!
I am soooooo against the popular thought that Valentine’s Day needs to be solely focused on your partner – as a little girl with a separated mum and grandmother, I would make sure that they felt loved on this special day. So why does society only push fucking couples? This is why I have not only boarded the Galentine’s hype train but I AM THE DRIVER.
For those who are unfamiliar with the term, GALENTINE’S is the time where you celebrate all your pals, those who hold your hair up in the night after you’ve had a drink too many, or those who go to dedicated lengths to put a smile on your face. And you can no longer use the excuse ‘am miserable bc i’m single’ because that’s not true. So it’s a win win situation!
Now I know this is a lot of talk about love, and you may still not be ready to hear it because after all January was such an atrocity that the last thing we could think about was Valentine’s day (insert green faced puke emoji). But Feb is here and it’s Fab.
So join me, get your phone out and let’s all celebrate LOVE. Text your best bud and tell them you appreciate their existence and witty sarcastic comments, run up to your mum/dad and give them a cuddle for always having your back, tell your boyfriend that despite leaving the toilet seat up all the time you still love him. Fuck it, go out and tell someone random that they look nice.
Tell me how you are gonna reach out to your best pals below,
or go comment on my last insta pic and lemme know!
