The Mind Trap of Advertising Commercial Holidays: Valentine’s Day Edition

Hello, dear readers! It's Valentine's Day! Or, for most of my life, I stubbornly referred to it as Single Awareness Day (and honestly, it still is), because I wasn't lucky enough to be in a relationship and have something to celebrate.

I constantly tell others why they deserve the world, why they are amazing human beings, why they should love themselves and what it is about themselves… Continue reading Discovering My Own Toxicity
