Valentine's Day has always been a fun holiday for me. When I was younger my mom would make heart shaped sugar cookies and we'd decorate them to take to school. My dad would buy all of us kids a box of chocolates and a small toy. We'd exchange valentine cards at school and got MORE candy.
When you're in a relationship, it's a time to show love to them (although it's not the only time of year to show love, you can do that any day). For many, it's a fun tradition; and a happy day full of chocolate, flowers, a nice dinner, heartfelt cards, and hopefully ends with sex.
However, there are those who aren't feeling the love they once felt early in their relationships. The days are filled with doubt and sorrow as they try to work through their struggles. Valentine's day can be depressing. How can you participate in a holiday about love when it feels like a lie to say, I love you? Many days you don't even like your spouse or feel like your spouse doesn't like you.
Despite often feeling unhappy you stay committed and hold out hope for better days. You know you love them even if you don't feel it at the moment. You want to have a healthy relationship.
What are things you do to express love to your spouse, even when you aren't feeling it?
