Valentine’s Day often centers around how we express our love for others. From our perspective, this approach misses a critical step: self-love. Self-love provides a foundation from which all other love can bloom. Without self-love, we often give more to others than to ourselves. This dynamic can leave us depleted over time. When we start from a place of first nourishing and honoring ourselves, we have more energy, and more energy to give toward expressing love to others. So, before you invest your resources – time, energy, money, emotions – in expressing love for someone else, take a moment to express love for yourself.
