Love Yourself First

Happy Valentines/Galentines/Palentines/Love Day guys! 
I just wanted to have a quick chat to you about the importance of loving yourself regardless of whether you're single, partnered up or somewhere in that messy space in-between.
I know that today is traditionally about spoiling our partners.. a 'named' day to express love and affection and whilst some may argue that it's not necessary, and others look forward to it all year round.. I feel like it's all kind of irrelevant if you don't love yourself first.

I'll be the first person to admit I'm pretty shit at the whole 'self love/self care' thing but I'd like to think that I'm slowly.. s l o w l y.. getting there.
As much as I 100% support loving what you see in the mirror, putting your needs first, being kinder to yourself, not beating yourself up for the occasional takeaway etc.. what I'm really trying to get at is the importance of strengthening our ability to love ourselves as an independent.. not just as 'the other half.
The way I see it.. Valentines Day isn't a day for feeling bitter, it's a day for celebrating being comfortable, whether that be alone or with another. Having the ability to be comfortable in our own skin.. to really appreciate our good qualities and be proud of ourselves if we do well.. those are the things that make us not only happier within ourselves.. but they make us much better people to be around, to spend time with, and to invest in.
Something I've found that has really helped contribute to my growth as a reasonable human is by surrounding myself with the best people, and really building up a 'team' of favourite humans. I really don't think that it matters how big or small your team is either.. just as long as they help you grow in confidence, happiness and self worth .

I know it's kind of cliche to be all 'you've gotta love yourself' but I guess I just want you all to know that you're awesome. I know what it feels like to be so far away from knowing that and I just want to give you all a little nudge - just in case you need it - in the right direction. (The direction of being easier on yourself, being more comfortable with yourself and trialing a little acceptance here and there.)
 Whether you're in a relationship or not, whether you're the happiest you've ever been or you're struggling more than ever.. you...  YES YOU .... you're doing great and please know,  you're always.. always part of my team.
