Valentine’s Day is just days away and regardless of your relationship status, radiate love this season.
Being in a relationship is great, but maintaining that relationship in a healthy manner is better. Whether it be an intimate relationship or simply just a friendship there is always a level of maintenance required to grow together.
For months, many of us have been reliant on our partners, family and friends to be there to provide love and a sense of belonging during the pandemic. We all possess different love languages, and the lack of physical presence can be disheartening for some. Although, there are many ways that you can practice sending love to those close to you.
Gift giving isn’t always a necessity to show someone you love them, of course gifts are great, but words of affirmation feed the soul more than any material item could. Through a medium of your choice, write to a loved one and express the importance of their role in your life and what it means to you. It’s a simple way to express gratitude and spread your love.
Love is unconditional, you have the power to make every day Valentine’s Day with your partner or loved ones. Practice showing affection your actions and behavior, it’s easy to get caught up in the negatives of our day, but don’t carry that stress into your relationships.
Not everyday is a great day, and that is to be expected. Recharge yourself with conversations and express yourself and allow others in on how you’re feeling. Show love through communication, take time to share how you feel and allow others to do the same.
We don’t have to go through hardships alone. There is someone that cares and loves you, so take time to communicate with them.
This week, month or year have those tough conversations. Break below the surface level and have deep, meaningful conversations that fill you up and learn more about how you can spread love to those in your life that need it too.
Love yourself and those around you! You got this.
