Rhimes, who’s become well known as the creator of hit shows, Scandal, Greys Anatomy and Private Practice, was recently asked to give advice to any single ladies on Valentines Day. She responded in a way that most would not expect, but many people probably needed to hear! Most of us have spent one or several Valentines Days feeling sorry for ourselves or being angry that we did not have anyone to share it with. Or, some of us did have someone to share it with, but that person just so happened to be an idiot, that didn’t make you feel special at all!! Whatever the case may be, Shonda reminds us that it’s just another day!! Read her response below:
Here is what I say to all the ladies who are alone on Valentines Day: please do not ever use these words “ladies who are alone on Valentine’s Day” together in a sentence ever again. Ever. Again.
Valentine’s Day is just a day. It’s just a day of the year like any other. Go. Be happy with the people you love and who love you. See a friend. Read a book. Flirt with a cute boy (or girl). Dance it out. Watch a movie. Have a party. Build a robot. Stop a Zombie Apocalypse. Take over the Earth. Paint your toenails. Eat soup. DO ANYTHING.
BUT DO NOT buy into the idea that a day created by greeting card companies should be more romantic than other day or should make you feel lonelier than any other day. Cause life is awesome. And that (feeling lonely cause of a day) is stupid. And a waste of perfectly good time. And it makes me do things like write ranty tweets. Because FOR REALS? You’re asking me to cheer up women who are alone of Valentine’s Day? You don’t need cheering up. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU. You are perfect and awesome just like you are. You just happen to be listening to someone who says you aren’t. They are idiots. Ignore them.
Because FYI? A lot of great things can happen to you while you are single.
I came up with a show called Grey’s Anatomy while I was single.
Fuck Valentine’s Day. Go do something with your life.
much love, Shonda
Love It!! Remember, the only love you need is God’s love and always remember to Love Yourself! CNikky is sending love your way today and everyday! Happy Valentines Day!! XOXO
