When it comes to love, you matter!

One of my favorite Irish authors is Oscar Wilde. And one of his literary quotes that I am particularly smitten with is, “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” 


These words hold a lot of truth and wisdom and remind us that loving ourselves is essential to living a fulfilling life. When it comes to love, it’s you who matters.


Many people struggle with self-love, often putting the needs of others before their own. However, it’s important to remember that self-love is not selfish. Instead, it’s about valuing yourself and treating yourself with the same love and kindness you would show others.

Here are some ways you can do that:


  • Engage in activities that bring you joy, such as reading, listening to music, or spending time in nature.
  • Forgive yourself for any shortcomings or failures and learn from them. 
  • Don’t be afraid to say “no.” After all, it is a complete sentence. 
  • Treat yourself with kindness and compassion, focus on your strengths, and celebrate your accomplishments.
  • Pursue your passions and interests to show yourself that you are worth it! 


When you do things like this to love yourself, you begin to see yourself in a more positive light. You start to appreciate your strengths and accept your weaknesses. As a result, you become more confident and self-assured, which can significantly impact every part of your life.


Self-love is also essential for maintaining healthy relationships with others. When you love yourself, you can better give love to others. That makes you more patient, kind, and understanding and less likely to tolerate unhealthy behavior from others.


Always remember, when it comes to love, you matter. So, take the time to prioritize your well-being, and don’t be afraid to treat yourself with love and kindness. Your relationship with yourself is the most important one you will ever have. So, make it a lifelong romance!
