Giving on Valentine’s Day Will Make Life More Meaningful

Giving on Valentine's Day
Share Happiness!

 

Valentine’s Day is February 14th and a great day to start your giving on Valentine’s Day.  It celebrates love between couples, families and friends.  Unconditional love or complete love is to love somebody with no conditions – giving without expecting something in return. A mother’s love for her child and a dog’s love for its owner are common examples of complete love. This Valentine’s day give love and give unconditionally.  Read on for some ideas.

Loving Yourself Unconditionally Is a Great Give

Love yourself unconditionally first, only then can you give the same to others. Examples include:

  • Stop constantly trying to please others
  • Refuse to criticize yourself
  • Reach out to friends and allow them to help you
  • Forgive yourself for past mistakes
  • Remove toxic relationships from your life
  • Meditate
  • Get a massage
  • See a therapist
  • Join a support group
  • Let go of the things you cannot control

Forgiveness Is A Powerful Daily Give

If someone has hurt you or disappointed, choose forgiveness, try to let go of any bitterness and resentment you have towards them. Here are some ways you can forgive and complete a daily give.

  • Vent – tell a few trusted people about your experience
  • Don’t live in the past, live in the present
  • Give someone the benefit of the doubt
  • Take offenses less personally
  • Practice stress management
  • Give up some expectations of others
  • Remember a life well lived is the best revenge
  • Remind yourself forgiveness is a heroic act

Honesty – This Daily Give Is A Great Way To Live

Unconditional love means doing what you can to make the other person cared for, but also helping them learn and grow during hard times.

  • Ask how you can help
  • Don’t rush them through their pain
  • Don’t think you know everything
  • Sit with them and listen
  • Resist the urge to fix a situation
  • Don’t give unsolicited advice
  • Hold their hand or give them a hug
  • Let them know you love them

Acts Of Love – Some Of Our Favorite Daily Gives

Unconditional love is more about how you act than how you feel. Your love is not based on some else’s words or actions, you practice love regardless of how other people behave. Simply you are in love with the feeling of giving love.

  • Be a good listener
  • Volunteer
  • Practice good deeds daily
  • Try to see someone else’s point of view
  • Give someone a sincere compliment
  • Help someone in need
  • Call someone who is struggling with grief, depression or loneliness
  • Do not participate in gossip
  • Apologize when you are wrong
  • Practice kind speech
  • Say ‘I love you’
