Valentines day is just around the corner and we’re all thinking of what we can do for the one we love… but what about ourselves?

The majority of us find it so easy to love others around us, but what about starting to love ourselves? After all you are only with one person for the rest of your life… You.

Self-love is not something that comes easy for many of us. It’s not something that happens over night.


From any relationship that you’re in you look and aim for a number of expectations, loyalty, communication, openness, support, quality time and fun. All of these things constitute a good relationship with someone else, but they also make up a good relationship for you to have with yourself.

Now let’s take one of these qualities from above, quality time for example, this is so important in any relationship, and of course it is essential you have quality time for yourself. Spending time with yourself is when you really start to learn about who you really are.

So this Valentine’s Day do something for yourself as well as someone that you love. Take some quality time to spend by yourself, take a walk, have a hot bath, spend sometime understanding who you are. Quality time and self-care is far more important than you think.

Valentines Day is the perfect time to start your self-love journey.
