I know valentine is four days away, but a relationship takes more than four days to blossom— take your time.
I know love is beautiful, but dating the right man/woman makes it an inspiring journey.
I know Valentine is coming; please don’t rush anything!
I truly hope you take your time and not just follow the butterflies you feel blindly.
If roses are red, if your heart is strong, he can still hurt you. To love joyfully; you must find someone you are compatible with, someone who can bear your shame and carry your glory. It’s significant to not just love up but build trust, build knowledge and understanding of each other—understand each other’s love language.
There is a depth of love and understanding I want to share with my partner. The same profoundness of love and understanding Jesus shared with every one of us. I want to be able to love him through thick and thin, I want to be able to understand him before yelling at him or throwing tantrums, I want to be able to not get mad when I’m supposed to, not rain insults when it’s the right thing to do. Because I am a flawed kingdom woman, I want to love like God. Through weakness and strength. That is why I can’t just rush things because of a day’s celebration.
Giving your all in a relationship is now considered a weakness. Commitment and submission is almost a crime. They laugh at you and can’t wait for when this love walls would come crashing. But then, don’t be afraid to give it a try, and when you summon the courage to give love a try, give it your best.
On 14 February, it’s okay to be home alone staring at the ceiling or counting the stars. It’s okay to talk over dinner alone. You can go to the mall holding your bag and not a strong arms. You can prepare a table before the one who promised to set a table before you in the presence of your enemies. It’s okay to send your friends random messages and remind them of how wonderful they’ve been.
Valentine shouldn’t just be about romantic relationships. Normalize spreading love on valentines day and sharing cupcakes with the neighbors.
In advance, Happy Valentine’s Day.
