Love is in the Air

by: Bey Gonzalez LMHC

Love is difficult and complicated; as a result, we have a need to love, a need to be loved, and a need for Self-Love.  Which of these describe you?  This is a simple question that directly impacts your mental well-being.  In my practice I help people who have never taken the time to think about Self-Love refocus themselves to embrace Self-Love.  Self-Love is important I'm not talking about the kind of selfish love protrayed in magazines, movies, on tv or even the radio.  I'm talking about "Self" Love.  Ask yourself "Do I acknowledge that I have a need to love myself?".  Reflect on this as we approach Valentine's Day.  What are your thoughts on Self-Love?

Some people can't find the line between loving themselves and being selfish.

Recently went through a break up and this is just what I needed to read today. I definitely need to focus on loving myself right now. Thanks for sharing.

I think relationships work best when all 3 types of love are present.
