Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
Valentines Day. Even the name itself gives single people hives. It’s a day dedicated to honoring loved ones and showering them with affection. For single people, it’s a nightmare. An entire day dedicated to red roses and chocolates are just reminders of what they don’t have. Most days, these people don’t feel like they’re missing something. The way I see it, relationships are great parts of life that people relish, but sometimes, being single gives people a certain perspective on life and individualism. However, on a day where people celebrate love, life feels just a little lacking, with a whole lot of loneliness.
Being single is a choice. Some people want to remain single forever, and some eventually want to settle down with the right person. There never is a right or wrong time to make that decision. I’ve noticed that in Asian cultures, especially the elder generations, they constantly nag the youth as to when they will settle down, find a career, and have kids. They often question the ability to have a relationship or even form a stable career if the person chooses to remain single for a long period of time. However, this mentality is not exclusive to Asian cultures. About 50-60 years ago, in most societies around the world, people got married young and had kids at a young age as well. Despite the obvious generational and societal shift, some elderly people do not realize that; it forces a number of unwanted relationships, even arranged marriages. Times have changed, and so have the youth. Being single is something to embrace, it is a time to realize one’s self-worth.
Statistics show that more children of the millennial generation are staying single longer, settling down later, and choosing not to build families. Right now, single people in their early to mid-20s are less concerned with the stigma of not having a ‘Valentine’ for Valentines Day. Sure, showering someone with extra love on this day is heartwarming and refreshing, I won’t deny that. But the ability to realize self-worth, and learning to love yourself, is something far more meaningful. Besides, it would be very difficult to enter a loving relationship, without loving yourself.
