Here at Jones and Associates Law, PC we advise our clients to think beyond the stigmas surrounding Valentine’s Day. Many of our separated, newly divorced, and single clients have been bombarded with the stereotypical beliefs that they should spend their Valentine’s Day crying, throwing pity parties, and feeling miserable! This is not so!
Valentine’s Day can be a day of love for anyone! We encourage our clients who are separated or going through a divorce to take some time this weekend to focus on and celebrate you! Often times while in marriages, people typically put the needs of their significant other before their own, this year we encourage our separated and newly single clients to embrace self love on this Valentine’s Day.
Here are some tips on things you can do to exercise the love you have for yourself on Valentine’s Day!
1. Give yourself the gift of time! Think about yourself, and do not feel guilty about it!
2. Celebrate and reward yourself! Treat yourself to a nice steak dinner (or the equivalent if you aren’t a fan of red meat). Buy the new book, get the manicure and pedicure, treat yourself!
3. Relax! Have a spa day, or run a hot bubble bath. Whatever it is that relaxes you, do it!
4. Do anything you want to do! With no regrets, and enjoy loving yourself.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our clients, but especially to those who are learning and rediscovering self- love!!
