When you’re alone on Valentine’s Day…

Dearest reader,

It’s Valentine’s Day and maybe all the couples you know are having together time and you feel like your missing out.  Maybe you’re single, or maybe your partner is busy because they’ve got an important job to do, or an important meeting, or they have to travel, or just anything.  Whatever the situation, it’s Valentine’s Day, and you’re alone, and you don’t like this.

First off, you’re not alone.  There are other people feeling like you do, take comfort in that idea.  Secondly, why not use this time to show yourself some love?  You could take some extra time to do some yoga; treat yourself to long, relaxing bath; give yourself a big hug; give some extra attention to your pet or just take some extra time to do something you love.

One of the most important things you can do is to love yourself.  I know it sounds hard, trust me, I struggle with it too, but giving yourself some love can make you feel better.  So take a time out and enjoy yourself.  After all, it’s only Valentine’s Day – it comes round every year just the same.  You could even pretend it doesn’t exist and treat just like any other day.  Remember, the most important person you need to love is yourself, if you don’t look after and love yourself, how can you look after anyone else?

With love.
