Madly in Love With Me Day is observed annually on February 13th to mark the essence of loving yourself without guilt and choosing yourself over others. It's all about making you a best friend. It is dedicated to teaching people, especially women, the importance of knowing and loving yourself. Self-love is your belief that you are a valuable and worthy person. An example of self-love is when you have a favorable view of yourself and are confident in yourself and your place in the world.
Origin of Madly in Love With Me Day
Madly in Love with Me Day is the brainchild of Christine Arylo, a leader, mentor, and founder of The Path of Self Love School, an organization focused on teaching people how to create an external platform in self-love. By celebrating the occasion on February 13, International Self-Love Day, as well as the day before Valentine's Day, Arylo wants to "reinforce one's feeling of being loved." This way, she says, a person can then share the love with everyone they hold dear, not just a significant other. It's also a way to help single people not feel lonely or worthless when it comes to Valentine's Day. By strengthening self-love, a person can combat feelings of “loneliness and frustration”. Self-love frees an individual from the pressure of expectation that can come with the Valentine's Day holiday.
Madly in Love with Me Day is about love yourself. What is narcissism? As Christine's narcissism website defines, narcissism is "love directed toward you". Through the lens of Christine's school, self-love is not vanity, narcissism, or lack of love. It is the unconditional love and respect you have for yourself. Loving yourself is about nurturing the personal relationships and environments that help you become the best version of yourself.
Celebrating Madly in Love with Me Day
Let celebrate Madly in Love with Me Day by sharing your views on healthy self-love. Social media has created a platform to promote narcissism to address self-love positively instead of negatively. On this day, enjoy yourself and do what is necessary for yourself. Share your thoughts on this day on social media using the hashtag #MadlyInLoveWithMeDay.
