  1. Yay! Great read. Loving yourself is important. I remember being in a “why can’t I be like everyone else” phase. I was often depressed. It took me a long time to figure out that my thinking is backward. I shouldn’t say “why can’t I be like everyone else”, but “everyone needs to get like me”. I know it sounds conceited but I’m happy, learning something new and bettering myself everyday. I don’t celebrate V-day either. I don’t like the obligation of buying people crap and vice versa.

    1. If that works for you that’s what is important! Although I don’t think it’s being conceited 😀 At most is being confident.
      Completely agree… Moreover, if you go back in time you easily understand that these days are more of a production from companies to sell things and make money.

  2. I completely agree with what you wrote here. How can you love someone else, when you don’t love yourself. It’s hard though..especially when you have battled insecurity and selfdoubt all your life. This was a very beautiful and inspirational post. Thanks for writing it and I hope you had a great day 😊😊

    1. Yeah… It’s really hard to be honest! For me it’s a constant battle… But I think that is also production of me being to perfeccionist with mysel… A habit that I can’t really get out of.
      Glad you liked it! My day was normal eheh workind and making a design of a chocolate box to throw at the social media… It didn’t get the love from the Internet that it deserved though 😦 Hope you also had a great day 😉

      1. It was just a very normal plain old day 😀 Stupid thing is, when I come home on Valentine’s day there is always this moment where I have this secret hope there is a Valentine’s card waiting for me. Of course that never happens lol 😂😂
        Hmm..I have that same battle my friend. But trust me eventually things will get better. There will still be days that are a constant struggle, but for over the years, have definitely gotten better 😊😊

      2. Well I was already 16 and I still dreamt about getting a letter to go to hogwarts so who am I to judge xD to be honest only when I became a full fledged adult I stopped hoping for that letter (just because it does not make sense now since I already have my degree – extreme logic right here xD)

  3. Thank you for the post!! Well written and I agree!! Loving yourself is way more important, because if you don’t love yourself, how can you love someone else? The reason why some people are desperate for a relationship is because they need someone to tell them the good things about them.. Something is missing in their heart. But who cares! Just love yourself first and the rest will come! No matter how you look from the outside, the inside is what makes you human. Also you have lot’s of reasons why you should love yourself, because there is always something you you have what others don’t have. Again thank you for the post!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comment! And I think you are completely right! I always tell people that a relationship will come when they stop looking for it, why? Because that’s when they are confortable with themselves and being alone. People may think that it’s not the case, but the reality is, that kind of feeling is transmited to the people around you making you a more interesting person!

  4. Accepting yourself is super-important, but it can be very difficult — particularly if the act of embracing who you “really” are seems to make some people drift out of your life. This has happened to me on several occasions, unfortunately.

    But then if that happens, rationally speaking, you have to ponder whether those people were “true” friends in the first place. Ultimately it’s better to be true to yourself than to try and force yourself to be someone you’re not.

    That’s partly what my site is all about. Many of the games I’ve covered are titles that people have done their best to ridicule and shame me for in the past, but I (and plenty of other people like me!) enjoy them. I’d rather stay true to that and celebrate the things I love with like-minded people than deprive myself of something I enjoy, purely for the sake of fitting in with a particular crowd.

    1. I completely agree with you! It’s hard, more even if you are a perfecionist like myself who has a terrible difficulty to accept my own flows.
      And it’s true, when you embrace yourself and become happier, there are people who may go away, but the thing is, as you said, if they go away it’s because they were not true friends to begin with!
      And I also completely agree with you in the blog part! It absolutely amazes me how people go out of their way to make fun of other for their likes or dislikes, just because 1 – they don’t agree with you, or 2 – it’s not popular… It’s just stupid and show how narrow minded these people are! You do you and there are always people that will like the same things as you (unless you are the pooping in the shower guy from 9gag)
