This Valentine’s Day, as well as spending time with your loved ones, remember to also focus on one of the most important loves of all…self-love. Without loving and appreciating ourselves, it can be hard to feel the same way about others. Learning to know ourselves, and accepting all of our imperfections and faults, can sometimes be difficult to do but it’s through this awareness that we can become more open and compassionate to others.
A healthy sense of self-esteem can make us feel more comfortable and deserving of the good things in life. The more we feel worthy as an individual, the more we can give back to others. It can also make us feel better about the choices we make and what we really want in life. Self-love takes time and is a journey throughout our life. What better time to start than right now when love is definitely in the air!
