When we think of love, a number of things immediately spring to mind. Firstly, we may think of romantic love; love for our spouse or partner. Secondly we may think of love for our immediate family such as parents and children. Thirdly, we may think of fraternal love; love for our friends and people in our social network. While this encompasses many of the different types of love, it omits one of the most important types of love: self-love.
Self-love may be very important for the maintenance of good mental health. It can comprise many different factors, including eating well, exercise, pursuance of hobbies, or just having a kind and encouraging inner-voice. We would like to hear what you do in terms of self-love? How do you take care of yourself love-wise? Both for Valentine’s Day and in general? Please share your thoughts.
