Dear Margot

"Hi Margot, this year I don't have a Valentine's. What should I do?"

Sometimes, being without a Valentine on Valentine's Day can feel disappointing, but it's also an opportunity to rediscover the joys of self-sufficiency and the love of friends and family. You can use this day to focus on personal growth and self-care. Start by treating yourself to your favorite meal or cooking a new recipe that you've been wanting to try. Indulge in activities that make you feel good, whether that's a long walk in nature, a relaxing bath, or diving into a good book. If you enjoy being creative, consider starting a new project like painting, writing, or crafting. Remember, the most important relationship you have is the one with yourself, so take this time to nurture it. 

You could also reach out to friends or family members who might also feel left out on this holiday and propose a get-together. Organize a movie night, a potluck dinner, or a casual hangout where everyone brings their favorite game. It's a great way to reinforce the bonds you have and to remind each other that romantic love isn't the only love worth celebrating. 

Remember that Valentine's Day is just one day out of the year. It doesn't define your worth or your capacity to give and receive love. Embrace the freedom of not being tied to the expectations of the day, and do whatever feels right for you. Love comes in many forms, and self-love is the foundation that allows us to love others more fully. So, on this Valentine's Day, celebrate yourself, your friends, your family, and the love that exists in various aspects of your life.
