Sooo many people dread Valentine’s Day because they lack someone special with which to share it. I’ve never gotten overly excited about February 14 because I prefer to randomly show love for my partner without any cues from Hallmark. But I do believe that one of the most important things you can do on a day that is all about love is manifest those same feelings for yourself.
Generating feelings of self-love only attracts more external love into your life. Now, don’t confuse this with a lack of humility. We’re not talking about narcissism here; it’s never good to be so enamored with yourself that you have none left for anyone else.
The kind of self love I am referring to is rooted in acceptance, worth and a desire to put forth the best version of yourself. People are attracted to this kind of self-love. It signals that you are ready to invest in someone else because you’ve taken the time to focus on yourself. It also shows others you are not only open to emotion, but also, that you’ve mastered your emotional well-being enough to find a healthy balance in your romantic relationships.
