There are different reasons why everyone celebrates a festival, for some, it’s the historical and cultural meaning behind the festival and for some, it is the meaning we have learnt to attach with time. The same goes for Valentine`s day, we never really actually learnt why and how this day of love and romance came into existence. We have learnt to appreciate this day as a day of love and romance.
Valentine`s day is named after a Saint, St. Valentine who was a Catholic priest living in Rome in the third century. A long long time before today, it was St. Valentine perhaps, who gave love a name. His love for the blind daughter of Emperor Claudius II is well known in all his legends.
Today, 14th of February is more than a day of historical celebration, it is more than the importance which St. Valentine`s attached to the idea and feeling of love. His might would have been the idea of love but over time we have come to realize the importance of love as a feeling.
And, love not just for your partner but love for everyone and firstly, yourself.
Do you love yourself enough? Do you take care of yourself? Have you made it a point to regularly indulge in self-care?
Self-Care is any activity that you perform to enhance and maintain your mental, emotional and physical health. Often, the idea of love has been associated with the other. In popular media, the television, radio or movies and even novellas are not far behind. The idea of love has always been associated with the other, we have always thought of love as something which we can give to others and get from others. Is it true? Can you only receive love only from others and give love only to others?
If that were true, we would be helpless emotional beggars for love, out here. Craving for one thing, which we need the most.
…now open your mind by closing your eyes
see the unseen world within you
From the poem ‘The Unseen World
― Munia Khan, Beyond The Vernal Mind
The truth is all the love that you need in this world lies, within you. All you need lies within you.
Someone had once greatly said- “Others will be able to love you only when you have learnt to love yourself”
