2. Make a list of things you love about yourself
How often do you take time to remind yourself of your good qualities? Most of us rely on others to tell us what they love about us, and we often expect them to compliment us. But, it’s actually our responsibility to love ourselves first, since we usually love others and forget to love ourselves. Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to remind yourself of all those amazing things that make you special, though you can opt for this way any time that you feel lonely. This will help to boost your mood and love yourself again. Write down all the things that you like about yourself on slips of red, pink and white paper and put them into a rainy day jar. This stash of great reminders will help you to make it through the times when you feel lonely or when you are struggling with your low self-esteem, anxiety or depression. I believe this is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself on Valentine’s Day!
