Valentine’s Day is upon us and love is everywhere you turn! From the vendors on the street selling roses to the heart shaped candies and stuffed animals lining the aisles of your Walgreen’s or CVS, the season for love is in full swing. It’s a beautiful time…for those with a significant other. For those who don’t have one, however, it can be a little more than annoying. I mean who wants to be bombarded with a constant reminder that on that most romantic of days you’ll be spending your day alone? Yeah, it kind of sucks, but for all those people out there feeling the single’s blues this Valentine’s Day we have a little challenge for you. Take the day and dedicate it to some serious Self Love!
“Our first and last love is…self love.”
- Selfishness. It’s not selfish to love yourself. In fact, selfishness involves very little self-love.
- Narcissism. Self-love is not narcissistic either. Narcissists don’t actually know how to love themselves—or others, really.
- The opposite of other-love. Nope. Self-love is an important part of loving others. You will never fully love others until you learn to love yourself. You cannot give what you do not already possess.
