This blog is my own thoughts and opinions on topics related to counselling and psychotherapy.

How is Your Love Life?

Seems like a simple enough question, doesn’t it? However for most people it is often complicated and conjures a lot of different feelings.

With Valentine’s Day this weekend, it is the topic on most people’s minds whether they are in a relationship or not.

However, I would like to suggest that instead of focusing just on your love relationship with another this weekend that you take some time to get to know yourself. When an individual knows themselves well and has spent some time on their own self-development they are more likely to be a happier and well-adjusted person.

Ok but by self-development I don’t necessarily mean just taking another course or working out more. I am suggesting that everyone should spend some time in solitude looking inward at who they are, what emotional wounds are still not healed, and what they can do to be the best that they can be in their life and in their relationships.

There are plenty of books out there where you can begin. There are also lots of online sites and information to do with self-growth. For those of you wanting to start the process of getting to know what makes you feel good within a relationship you can start with the book The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. At the following link you can take a quiz to help you determine what fills your love tank. Have fun with it.

But most of all, have a great Valentine’s Day and enjoy getting to know yourself better.
