Valentine’s Day has become too focused on romantic love

A day that’s supposed to celebrate ALL forms of love
Valentines+Day+has+become+too+focused+on+romantic+love
Ella Broms

Romantic, familial, platonic, and self-love are examples of how people show affection for one another. Valentine’s Day used to be a celebration of all types of love, but now it has become hyper-focused on romantic love. On a day when romantic love is plastered all over the world, it can be easy to feel ostracized like cartoon person Lexi. Despite having so many loving people around them, many people think they cannot participate in the holiday. 

We need to bring back the culture of celebrating love as a whole and stop putting unnecessary pressure on people to have a significant other. Eliminating the stigma behind Valentine’s Day is a must to help others feel more appreciated and less lonely.
