I know I’ve always wanted to receive a love letter from a potential or current partner. I’ve also written my fair share of them myself, but always to other people. That’s fine and all, but with Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought it would be a great idea to write myself a love letter!
If you don’t get the love letter you’re looking for, why not write one yourself? Simple, right?
Writing yourself a love letter can be greatly beneficial, especially to those with low self esteem or need a confidence boost. You’ll be writing yourself a letter about all the great thing you do, how wonderful you are, and why you deserve love.
So for this Valentine’s Day, consider writing yourself a love letter instead of waiting for that special someone to do if for you.
Why You Need to Write Yourself a Love Letter Right Now
I’ve never written myself a love letter and this is going to be a very hard thing for me to do, but I want to challenge myself to do it. I’m naturally a more pessimistic person and with my upbringing the way it was, I was always told I was wrong and my accomplishments were never truly celebrated.
What I’m also going to do is make this a yearly thing. Every year before or on Valentine’s Day I’m going to take some time out of my schedule and write myself a love letter. That way I can see how I’ve grown and evolved as time goes on. I’ll be able to see my confidence rising and my love for myself blossoming.
I highly recommend this for anyone with low self esteem, lack of confidence, or just has a lot of bad days. You never know when you might need a pick me up.
Who are you writing about?
Yourself, of course!
You’ll be writing yourself a love letter like you’ve never written before. Most likely you haven’t considered or even attempted to write yourself a love letter, so this is going to be a first.
This might be a bit weird to some of you, but if you’re a hopeless romantic like me, and you need some confidence boosting material, this can be just the the thing you need in your life.
You’ll consider writing a love letter to others, so why not yourself? You’re pretty damn awesome, and you should let yourself know that sometimes. So grab a notebook or open a computer document and get writing!
Why?: Why not?
Not everyone out there loves themselves to the degree they should. I should know, I’m one of them. Some of us have insecurities and doubts that make it so we question a lot of things in our lives, especially our own thoughts and actions, making it hard to love yourself the way you should.
So, take some time out of your day and get to writing a love letter to yourself. It’s going to be greatly beneficial to your self esteem. Imagine you’re having a bad day and you had something to read that reminded you of all the great things you’ve accomplished, the stuff you’ve been through and come out on the other side of, and just how wonderful you are. That would be fantastic to have on hand!
What: Who You Are. Boost Your Own Ego
Now is not the time to be modest. Dig deep into all the things that you can think of about yourself that you admire and cherish. Think of it as an ego boost in letter form.
Think about all the things you like about yourself, the accomplishments you’ve made, and why you’re a pretty damn awesome person. Think about the highlights of your life that you want to remember and be reminded of when you’re feeling down. Think happy thoughts.
This is most likely going to be a very person letter, and that’s okay. No one else has to read it. You can keep it in a diary, journal, secret computer folder, or even a lock box if you wish. Make this as honest of a letter as you can make it without embellishing the truth too much. You’re going to use this when you’re having a bad day, or you’ve just gone through a breakup, or you just don’t feel like yourself.
