I recently read an article by Seth Adam Smith about the choice of love, and figured it is fitting to share on Valentine’s Day! This article highlights the fact that there is no such thing as a fairy tale ending. Love and relationships are hard work and we must make a choice to go on this journey of ups and downs. In the article he discusses embracing the imperfections, walking the path together; despite what this path may look like, and committing to love. “Real love is an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person”. It is important to remember this within our relationships, however, it is just as important to remember this for ourselves! This article discusses relationships, however, I feel all these points are important to remember for the self too. When we can unconditionally love ourselves and make a choice to love ourselves, it is easier to love others. You do not need to be in a relationship to read this article, and you do not need to be in a relationship to enjoy Valentine’s Day! This is just like any other day which requires self-love and love for those that surround you.
“Real love is like the north star in the storms of life; it is constant, sure, and true. Whenever we’re lost and confused, we can find strength in the love that we have chosen”
