Love Is A Verb
It’s easy to put weight into one day of the year, but our self-worth is not attached to the market’s ideas about when we should feel or be worthy. You are deserving right now and every day. Read that again. Once we find ourselves worthy, it becomes easier to achieve self-love, but the act of loving ourselves takes daily action and practice.
To love yourself right this Valentine’s Day and every day, we encourage you to be honest with yourself about your needs. You may not feel loved because you’re not truthful about who you are and what you deserve.
- What aspects of yourself are you hiding?
- Do you have a healthy relationship with who you are?
- Why are you in this partnership if it’s unfulfilling?
As you begin to address these three questions, think of ways to be better true to who you are. Decide how you are going to act on one of those things on Valentine’s Day. Take notice of how you feel once you act on something you desire. Do you feel more worthy? Continue to live an honest and intentional life.
Cancel The Noise
If Valentine’s Day is particularly triggering for you, we encourage you to do all of the above while staying off social media. Does seeing people’s Instagram posts rouse jealousy? Then delete the app for the day and focus your attention on journaling about why you’re jealous, reading, meal planning using our recipes page, or volunteering.
