Spread the Love! Share the Wisdom!

How come we wait for certain days of the year, for us to show our loved ones that they’re really loved ones?
This is what I want to know, but for every holiday. I’m over it.
I cannot and will not be prompted to show love. I know you know it’s just another way to celebrate consumerism, nothing more.
I think a lot of it has to do with expectations. We see ads on television, in stores, and virtually everywhere basically, with subliminal messages that we have to spend all this money and make a lot of effort showering our loved ones with gifts, and then in turn, our loved ones expect that of us and they think it’s the gifts that equate to how much you love them. It’s all a lot of baloney. I can spend hundreds of dollars on you to make you feel good when inside my feelings might be lukewarm – or I can love you so deeply and completely and give you my time and attention and sharing a meal at Subway spending only $20. Unfortunately, people would rather have you spend your money and they make you feel guilty if you don’t spend enough. It’s the superficiality of relationships.
