Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but for a lot of us, it will be a day without someone to have and to hold. This can be extremely difficult for some because, as a society, we have been conditioned to believe we must be in a romantic relationship to be happy — but nothing could be further from the truth. You may be stressing about what to do on Valentine’s Day as a single person, but in reality, rolling solo on the 14th can prove to be positive. In fact, it can turn out to be one of the best days of the year, providing you have the right mindset; here’s how. 

Develop Self-Love

The truth is, some of the happiest people in the world are single. Why? Because they have developed self-love. They have effectively jumped out of the matrix, rewritten their subconscious mind, and have manifested the life of their dreams. It all starts with self-love, but before you can get to love yourself, it’s crucial to thank yourself repetitively and consistently. Aim to rewrite your subconscious mind to feel better about yourself, and no matter what is happening, you’re OK with you.

Practice Gratitude 

Every day, several times a day, just say to yourself, “Thank you.” Over and over again. This starts to rewrite your subconscious mind. And in doing that, your energy begins to shift. Instead of ignoring how much pain or sadness you feel, you thank it. That changes the negative energy because your gratitude says, “I welcome you.” Whatever you welcome and don’t ignore can’t affect you because all it’s trying to do is get your attention.

Hang Out With Your Other Single Friends 

How can singles celebrate Valentine’s Day? With their other single friends, of course. However, don’t make it a pity party or a “misery loves company” situation. Love comes in many forms, including friendship, so whether you choose to paint the town red or hang out in your pj’s, make it about happiness and, once again, gratitude. 

Be Your Own Date

Don’t force yourself to hang out with others. Sometimes, you’re your own best company. Celebrate self-love by treating yourself to a spa treatment, cooking a five-course dinner, buying a little something you had your eye on — whatever works. Even curling up on the couch watching uplifting rom-coms while eating takeout can boost your spirits. With confidence, patience, and a realization of self-worth, you have plenty to celebrate. Now that’s how to celebrate Valentine’s Day alone.

Practice Makes for a Perfect Relationship (With Yourself)

Over time, with this practice, your life can truly change. It starts on the inside when hardships don’t affect you like they used to. You will be in the perfect place to begin manifesting your dreams because you now genuinely love yourself, have confidence, and know what and why you were put here to do.
