“Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine!” -Thomas Hood
I had the fortune to be invited to provide a front page photo for Linden Lab again, this time for Valentine’s Day. My contribution for the pages was a photo of myself alone, a tribute to the self for Valentine’s Day. They say that “to be loved, you must love and be lovable,” but you also must love yourself, and I think this is the hardest thing to do for many. It’s in realizing our own goodness and worth that we find it others and offer it to others and then receive it back exponentially.
So if Valentine’s Day is not a happy time for you (and this holds true for those in relationships too), give yourself a big Valentine. Give yourself the gift you want—flowers, chocolates, new shoes in SL. Don’t wait for someone else to do it. Send yourself a Valentine and say, “Be Mine.”
If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself.- Barbara De Angelis
