Ah, February, the month of love.
Love has so many different elements. To love is to trust, have courage, be compassionate, and be vulnerable as well.
There's no doubt that love plays a significant role in our overall well-being. It feels amazing to be loved by someone else. However, those warm loving feelings can be difficult to sustain if you don't love yourself in a relationship.
The only person we have full control over in a relationship is ourselves.
No matter your relationship status, self-love is extremely important to maintain balance and harmony in your life and relationships.
This month, focus on creating a loving relationship with yourself.
When we hear the word relationship, we think of two people coming together.
We often take our relationship with ourselves for granted. It might even seem weird to acknowledge this relationship you have with yourself.
But this is the most important relationship of your life. Embrace the value of your relationship with yourself. Like any other relationship, this one also needs love, trust, and respect.
Focus on getting enough rest, and recharging your mind and body. Think about what you can do each day to make yourself feel more loved.
You can devote more time to self-care practices, take yourself on a date, speak more kindly to yourself, and write down your accomplishments.

Become more intentional about loving yourself.
Focus on the good in yourself and embrace your courage to say no to people who drain you.
Without self-love, we end up sabotaging new opportunities that come our way. We don't allow ourselves to accept compliments and we minimize our successes.
Self-love allows you to optimize all your relationships. Romantic gestures from your partner won't make any difference if you don't believe in your heart that you are deserving of them.
When you love yourself, it will be easier for your partner to love you as well.
Taking time for doing something that makes you feel good is not being selfish. It's necessary for a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life.
