Can you believe it? A government or empire can do that; I think love makes the world go round as I do admire St. Valentine’s persistent and adoration of young love or love in general. I feel that Valentine’s day is missing one thing that would make love more special, rewarding, and complete, and that is self-love.

Most of our life, we yearn and plead for the love of others, and in turn, others vow their love for us. May it be your parents, fiancé’s, friends. There are rituals for all those, baptisms, weddings, friendship bracelets. When will we ever make a promise to ourselves? When will we be accountable for our self-deprecating ways?

So go and tweet what you need this Valentine’s Day, and don’t forget to share. This day is all about Love, whatever Love that may be.
