I’ve written several “letters” in the past, I could repost for Valentine’s day- one to my husband (obviously lol) and one to Epilepsy. Ugh. :) This one, however, is to you.
Now that Valentine’s has passed, we can look beyond the hearts, candy, flowers, romantic FB pics, and focus on you. This V-Day note is one to ourselves…
People define Valentine’s Day love in all sorts of ways- romantic, friendly, etc.- but I’m throwing another type into the V-day mix… self. What about yourself? I find when you’re struggling, no matter the love around you from others, one of the hardest things to do is love yourself. Even if the struggle is through no fault of your own, validating the love others have for you and the love you should possess for oneself, isn’t always easy. You may feel a burden, a weight on those around you. But it’s okay to not worry yourself with what’s around you but to look inside you… I don’t really have much to say for this post other than give yourself permission to love you, faults and all. Sickness and all. Chronic illness and all. You may be slightly broken (but who isn’t?? 😊 lol), feel insecure and downright insignificant, yet you are here. Put stock in that. On Valentine’s Day and every day, you should never discount your worth.
That’s the love we should all start with.
And I just want you to know, I’m right here with you… 😊
