Happy Valentine's Day!
It is often harder to love yourself than it is others. I always found it so much more natural to give rather than to demand, to make more time for others than I do for myself. But if you don’t love yourself, then your love for others will just be a way for you to make others meet your emotional needs. To love yourself means accepting who you are with your flaws and weaknesses. This is not always easy but it is very important. Acknowledging what makes you perfectly imperfect makes you a better partner, mother, friend and overall well-rounded individual. I do struggle with this as well, but I know that no one is perfect and we are all worthy of love. The truth is that if you honestly love yourself the world will love you because you radiate happiness, beauty and self-confidence.
So, this Valentine’s day, whether you are single or taken, make time for yourself, pamper yourself as you would for a loved one, and then start spreading that love around you.
If there’s something you’ve been eyeing but holding out on for some reason, give it to yourself as a Valentine’s Day present! Happy Valentines Day!
