The loving kind

It’s that time of year again when the world is filled with reminders of “love”.

Actually, that “love” is a complete lie. It’s not real is it?

Essentially, the shops are filled with reminders to buy things.

Cards, chocolates, flowers, stuffed toys, or if you’re Marks and Spencer, a love heart shaped sausage.

Show someone you love them by buying them something. That’s what we’re being told isn’t it?

I’ve always got a bit annoyed about it all because at a very basic level I don’t like being told what to do.

Over and above that, a stuffed rabbit holding a love heart won’t make me feel more or less loved. And anyone who spends £50 on a bouquet of roses is actually insane.

It’s commercialism and a con. Forced.

Love does not come from the thing that’s been bought, but it comes from the act of giving the thing.
