Love is awful. It’s awful. It’s painful. It’s frightening. It makes you doubt yourself, judge yourself, distance yourself from the other people in your life. It makes you selfish. It makes you creepy, makes you obsessed with your hair, makes you cruel,
makes you say and do things you never thought you would do. It’s all any of us want, and it’s hell when we get there. So no wonder it’s something we don’t want to do on our own. I was taught if we’re born with love then life is about choosing the right place to put it.
People talk about that a lot, feeling right, when it feels right it’s easy. But I’m not sure that’s true. It takes strength to know what’s right. And love isn’t something that weak people do.

Today I am brave enough to share #myberniestory, it is also a Valentine’s Day story & the story of how I lost my mom.

9 years ago, the year my mom would pass away, my sis & I organized a massive Valentine operation to shower my mama in love during the last moments of her life.
She received hundreds of valentines from all over the country for weeks!! Our mailman rushed up our stairs everyday excited to hand her more love. She told me over & over how special each 1 made her feel. Compassion from people she didn’t even know kept her heart safe & hopeful.
My mom was 63 when she died & had a lot of love left to give. Our family was uninsured, lower middle class & regular visits to the Dr. were not in her budget. I didn’t realize it then, but I know now, like many mothers, she never prioritized herself so our family could have more.

#ValentinesStory : 4th grade, her name was Shawna-5th grade. I stayed up all night covered in glue and glitter making a special "Will You Be Mine?" HUGE poster board Valentine's card. Multiple colored markers, drawn hearts and love bubbles, little sweet nothings in marker 1/r
"Dearest Shawna" "You're Cute," "May I Have This Dance?," and more. On the back, I stapled an envelope filled with sweetheart candies, only the good ones. I wore a stupid red sweater vest from Goodwill that did not fit this chubby, poor kid. I'd give it her at lunchtime. 2/
I got on the bus and got tall shit for dragging around my humongous card as well as the vest. The bully, Tim said, "Hey look at mikey, hiding candy under his vest, oh sorry, he probably ate it all." "Look who loves SHAWWWNAAA," in a mocking sing-song chant 3/

1. Happy #ValentinesDay! Meet Peipei Li & Luhua Rao. Days after PRC tycoon Luhua met Peipei in #Vancouver he told her he loved her. A few weeks later he gave her a Tiffany diamond ring. A few months later he gave her C$18m & they married in Vegas. But (you know there's a but)...
2...Luhua was already married. His wife and mother of his two sons is vice-president of his multi-billion listed tech firm Shenzhen Clou Electronics
3. But moving on. Peipei set up a real estate investment firm in the Bentall Centre in downtown Vancouver. She bought a Rolls-Royce Ghost ($467,700). She bought this Shaughnessy home for C$7m

तिची आठवण रोजचं येते पण #ValentinesDay ला जरा जास्तच. हो, मी तिच्याचंबद्दल लिहितोय. माझ्या आयुष्यातली 'ती'. असं म्हणतात प्रेमाला वयाचं बंधन नसतं. मला पहिलं प्रेम झालं मी इ.१० वीत असताना माझ्यापेक्षा ५ वर्षांने मोठ्या असलेल्या मुलीशी. पुढे काय झालं वाचा या धाग्यात.
👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
मी दहावीत होतो. प्रेम वगैरे काही कळत नव्हतं पण आयुष्यात एक वळण येतं जिथे काहीही कळत नसताना तुम्ही अनावधानाने पाय घसरून पडता एखाद्या व्यक्तीच्या प्रेमात. माझ्याबाबतीत असंच झालं. मी दहावीत होतो तसा सगळ्यांच बाबतीत हुशार. थोडक्यात ऑल राऊंडर मग शाळेतही 'आपलीच हवा'.
दिवस मस्त चालू होते. अभ्यास,खेळणं, बागडणं, धम्माल, मज्जा,मस्ती जे तुम्ही आम्ही सगळे करायचो तेच. आमच्या शाळेत मुली नसायच्या फक्त मुलांची शाळा होती. त्यामुळे शाळेत 'मुली' हा शब्द आम्हांला विस्मयकारी वाटायचा. एक दिवशी सहज कानावर पडलं.

This #ValentinesDay, join us on a beautiful, special trip down memory lane.

(a thread, #RdgUK)
Sharon and Robert were both born, bred and raised in #RdgUK. They met over 45 years ago in Robert’s uncle’s launderette, and were engaged in the Abbey ruins on 18th June, 1978.

They are together and still going strong 43 years later.
📸: Here's a beautiful photo of Sharon from their engagement day, 1978.

On this #ValentinesDay I finally have the courage to declare i have always had a massive crush on Rahul Gandhi.

My idea of a perfect man.
Forgot to add. You may troll me for it, i dont care.
But it was Rajiv Gandhi whom I considered the last of the heroes. When Rajiv Gandhi was killed I didn't eat or drink from the moment I heard the news till after the funeral. I was crying the whole time.

Not once did I believe any allegations against him.

With the advent of the Penny Post 💌📮✨ the Victorian #ValentinesDay⁠ ⁠ card business flourished. Prepare for a thread of cut-lace & ornately illustrated cards as well as cheaper comic valentines. ♥️

(Card c. 1884 by Walter Crane, bequeathed to the V&A by Miss Edith Hipkins).
This card was part of 'The Language of Flowers' valentines series by perfumier Eugène Rimmel in the 1870s & 80s - it would have originally been scented with ‘Forget-Me-Not’. 🌸🌾👒 The paper lace lithograph tableau of a man & woman is most likely by Jules Chéret.(V&A, London).
A 19thC mock telegram from the ‘Lover's Banking Company’. It reads: 'I promise to pay you on Demand the entire Love of the Suppliant who sends this’ & is signed ‘Cupid'. (Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton & Hove). ♥️ 🏹🌹

Did you know?

"Valentine's day" is named after Saint Valentine . He was a Christian bishop and a physician.

He refused to treat his own fatally sick mother because she would not give up her belief in pagan God Jupiter and get baptized.

The disease killed her! #ValentinesDay
According to Legenda Aurea (compiled in c. 1275 CE), Saint Valentine was described as "destroyer of non christian pagan idols"
Valentine was abusing Non-Christian Gods and creating communal conflict.

He was jailed.

Romans wanted to release him provided he toned down.

"What is your opinion on (our) Gods Jupiter & Mercury"- they asked.

'Wretched and foul men.Filthy. Carnal. Of filthy birth'-He answered

With #ValentinesDay just around the corner, I thought I’d start doing a series of tweets about the history of venereal diseases. Aren’t you glad you follow me?! Let’s start with this sculpture entitled "Syphilis" by @paulkomoda, demonstrating the disease in its final stages.
@paulkomoda Before penicillin, syphilis was incurable. Victims often developed "saddle nose"—a deformity where the bridge of the nose caves into the face. It was so common, “No Nose Clubs” sprung up in the 19thC. More in #TheButcheringArt: amzn.to/2S4nR5I [Photo: Wellcome Collection]
@paulkomoda For those wishing to avoid syphilis, CONDOMS were an option in earlier centuries. They were typically made of lamb or goat intestines, secured with silk ribbons, and lubricated with saliva. They were also REUSABLE. Some featured bawdy images, like this 18th-century example. 👇

This leaves out so much, but those details would only make you sadder. They suffered a miscarriage prior to losing Harmony. Her father is a good man, & Harmony's mother is a special needs teacher.

Please read his heartbreaking message and help if you can: gofundme.com/f/harmonystron…
I can't sleep. I can’t get the passing of my niece Harmony out of my head. This innocent child deserved to experience more life.

No parents deserve this.

I would like to raise $10k to help assist her family during this time.

Who is with me? PLEASE!

A thread on a Tuesday night. Everyone who loves dogs, and animals, please share / RT.

This is — or was — a five month old puppy. He was found running stray, starving, in New York City, and turned in to the @NYCACC on February 2. They named him Letter Bank.
1/
He was terrified, as most strays and particularly puppies are, in a kill pound. Have you been in an ACC building? It is full of the cries of scared dogs and cats, slamming doors, shouts, and the smell of pee and fear. You’d be terrified too. Yet Letter Bank’s notes were good.
You’ll see he is listed as “New Hope” only. This is the highly ironic name the ACC gives as a category for dogs they really wish to kill. You can’t adopt one of these dogs. You must pledge money so a rescue approved by the ACC can pull the dog. Thus:

When the history of the rise and fall of @realDonaldTrump is written, #ValentinesDay 2019, House & Senate with #vetoproof majorities forced Trump to give up his wall. But for @foxandfriends @AnnCoulter @rushlimbaugh the @Trump presidency might have survived.
I can't estimate how many traditional Republicans are still Trump supporters but can say with almost certainty that a very powerful base of the GOP will not stand still for a overreaching emergency powers. Nobody, right or left, should turn a blind eye to this @POTUS overreach.
For Trump today was the first time that Congress just hammered him. Today 83 Senators voted to kill his wall. We need 67 to remove him. Building that coalition is the craziest thing Trump could do. And the right wing talk shows got him to do it. It was 100% predictable.

Who wants to hear a little Southwest #ValentinesDay love story? 🙋

THREAD:
We’ll set the stage for you. The year was 2013. Tracy was flying to Vegas to surprise her dad for his birthday. It was a Tuesday.* It was cold out.*

*not verified
Anyway, as Tracy was waiting for her connecting flight in Austin, Texas, she noticed a handsome man sitting next to her in the gate area. 👀

On this #ValentinesDay I choose to write a love letter--and a confession. The love letter is to the brave souls who, 50 years ago this June, launched the Stonewall Riots and gave birth to the modern LGBTQ rights movement. The confession? Well, read on. This isn't easy to say. /1
As a child, I always knew that I was different than the other boys. They would talk about "Monica," but I had my heart on "Bobby." I played along, but I knew that if I spoke my heart, I would be ostracized. So I remained silent. /2
After I became an actor, a few colleagues knew that I was gay, but the world at large did not. Coming out could end a career in that day. I remember watching heartthrob actor Tab Hunter be outed in the gossip rags, then dropped from studios and projects. So I remained silent. /3
