FoxTrot by Bill Amend for February 09, 2014
Peter: You're writing Valentine's cards to YOURSELF?!? Paige: i'm sick of basing my self-esteem on what other people do or don't do. Every February it's the same thing: If I don't get Valentine's cards from certain boys, I totally feel like an undesired loser. Why do I let them have this sort of power over me?! Why should my happiness rely on the actions of others?! It's pathetic! From now on, my self-worth is coming from ME. From now on, I'm writing MYSELF the Valentine's messages I deserve. Peter: "Paige, you are awesome! Love, Billy H." "Paige, you are special! Love, Mikey P." "Paige, you are beautiful! Love, Greggy E." I agree with the "special" one. Paige: Was that the doorbell? I'm surprising myself with flowers from a a super hunky secret admirer.
