We spend the first half of February often obsessed about the idea of love. It's all about romance and finding that perfect date for Valentine's day. Let's take a step back from that for a moment. Life is about love, but before we ask anyone else to love us, we must love ourselves. Here are some tweets from around the web to offer you a bit of encouragement:
"Don't forget to fall in love with yourself first."
"Love yourself the way you want your true love to love you."
"Learning to fully love yourself doesn't equate to selfish love. It means being patient with yourself and embracing self-compassion."
"Accept and love yourself for who you are, Once you do this you will start to be able to love and accept others for who they are."
"Get passionate with life & yourself and all that you love."
Listen to these statements. Internalize them. Let the motivation of loving yourself inflitrate your core.
If those tweets weren't enough to convince you, we've compiled a list of five blog posts from around the web. Each talks about a different aspect of self-love. We hope these posts and the tweets serve as a resource and reminder to love yourself more and more with each passing day. You deserve it.
