I read a comment on Facebook about how Valentine's Day can cause negative feelings in those who are single, and it got me thinking.
I think that outlook is pretty dis-empowering. We do have a choice in how we react to things. An arbitrary day cannot make us have negative feelings. I know it's tough sometimes. Trust me, I don't always have positive feelings about the day, either. It has been tough for me at various times this year, though I try not to be vocal about it. I try to make the best of things and choose to have a more positive outlook. It really is amazing to me sometimes how such a choice can improve my mood.
