Valentine And The Rejects

Faces are glowing, the excitement is in the air and no one wants to be left behind. That's what Valentine day does but take it or leave, by 15th, when the battle must have been lost and won, there would be the chosen at the peak of the mountain of the rejects. Some hearts will be mended while others would be broken.
It's beautiful to be a chosen one but being among the broken hearted or rejects isn't the worst that can come your way; it's resorting to self pity. It's painful especially when you've put in a lot but it's the time to release yourself from emotional and sentimental bondage, face inwards and confront yourself on the meaning of your relationship. Happy are those who find peace, joy and direction in rejection.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Yes indeed the excitement is in the air and I can't help wondering if it's actually Valentine's or Christmas. Anyway both seasons are seasons of love. For the rejects, hmmmm, they can only hope and pray that tomorrow would be a better day and the sun shines on them. Happy Val's day in advance bro.
You just got tagged on my blog.

Hey GB no fair....hahaha

Anyways..I will be a Valentine..but my heart will still be broken. First of all, I wont have my love with me on Vday. We would have to make our day special on another day. Hmmm, which may make it more special..our own day. Love is in the air and everyone wants to be a part of it.

You're absolutely right my dear.

Finding peace/joy in the face of rejection is not easy @ all, but it's doable. And I thank God 4 every rejection and broken heart I have suffered.

@Vera Ezimora
I've sure missed you sweetie! You're right it's hard but doable. Hope you had a good one this year?

For you to wonder what makes one a Valentine reject shows that you've never experienced it. I will never wish it for you.

Don't get me swollen headed Oyin. I've been on location. Sure yours was exciting?

Love is something that needs to be expressed every given moment and not only on special holidays. Every1 knows the strength of their relationship, so u will be the best person to answer it right; "the flower that was given to you or dinner u had together, was it out of the deepest part of the heart, or is it just for u to get of his/her back saying, oh he/she never gave me flower or took me out". My brother has 3 ladies and that day, he starts in d morning visiting every1 of them, give roses, and takes each one out the same day at 3 different restaurants and papmer them, which one of them will claim sincere love? Ladies be smart, these guys r smarter and pls be happy but don't brag ONLY if you're 100% sure!!!

I think its a mind thing.yes, I see it as what your state of mind is, when you channel your mind that valentine is only boy friend and girl friend thing,then you have between heartbreak and heart-mending as the two faces of love.its very dangerous cos you don't have to make a choice. So let us not limit our definition of valentine.

Emeka another wonderful write-up! @Femi B, I couldn't agree more... Valentine's Day celebration is a steady way to guarantee revenue for Corporations...another corporate brain wash strategy!
