“To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.” – Robert Morely
As we are celebrating the Week of Love, it only made sense that we spoke of a love that is oftentimes ignored or not considered important in front of other relationships that one is expected to maintain. We are talking about self-love. Probably the only kind of love that has the most promising benefits. Many people think of self-love as a day at the spa or a bubble bath, but self-love means so much more than that.
