If you are married or in a romantic relationship with someone, you know that’s an ongoing job. We often get into the trap of hoping and expecting to receive our happiness from external sources, most commonly from men. In reality, nobody else can make us truly happy and happiness is a personal responsibility.
We all have a basic need to be loved and appreciated. As Descartes said, “human is a social animal.”
The crucial thing as women is not to forget to fall in love with ourselves first. We need to be able to love ourselves enough so that we can love another. Self-love in romantic relationships is a must.
Many women stay in unhealthy, co-dependent and even toxic relationships out of fear: fear of the unknown, fear of what other people think, financial dependency, or the need to have someone else to confirm and validate their self-worth.
There is a big difference between being needy of someone in a romantic relationship to feel worthy and complete and wanting to be with someone to grow together and share life experiences.
The essence of this topic is that true, long-lasting happiness cannot come from someone else, but only from ourselves, from the inside out. With or without having a romantic partner in our lives, it is essential not to forget to be our own Valentines.
