A lot of people like to argue that you never know how single you are until Valentine’s Day. However, I believe most holidays have a way of reminding you. Christmas and mistletoe are synonmous. New Years is ushered in with a kiss and even Halloween has been commandeered by happy couples. Make no mistake, I am not jealous. I am just happily aware. I am single and I am making the most of it. I am not sure if it is the fact that I hail from a big family or what but I find myself unmistakingly aware that once you jump into that family lifestyle there is no turning back. So it is important that you make the most of those single years and once you find yourself in that family situation, do everything you can to carve out those moments for yourself.
Self-love is paramount in the sense that how you treat yourself is a direct reflection of the love that you are willing to allow yourself to receive. If you don’t know how to love you, how will anyone else know? We are own worst critiques and typically people are all too willing to join us in our critical critiques of ourselves. So be kind to yourself. Learn to forgive yourself. Learn to love yourself because ultimately, the way you learn treat yourself is the way others will treat you as well.
Our advice for the month of February: Love yourself without question with everything you have because you wouldn’t expect anything less from the person who tells you they love you. You are worthy of a selfless and kind-hearted love.
