Valentine's Day can bring blessings and moments of love, or it can feel like nails on a chalkboard. Some people cringe at the thought of having to fake their true feelings and give gifts they resent to a person they don't feel particularly fond of at the moment. For singles Valentine's Day is a sharp reminder of the lack of intimacy with another, and for those in challenging relationships it can make the brokenness seem even more obvious. In reality it should be a reminder that intimate relationships need focused care in order to thrive. Even relationships that are struggling can be revived when two people make concerted efforts to love one-another.
