Buy yourself flowers

Image: openclipart

When you are feeling rejected and unloved, turn to yourself.  Give yourself the love that you've been craving for.
A great way to do that is to buy yourself flowers. It sounds silly, but it worked for me.

Besides silly it can also be fun.
I had fun at the flower shop, pretending that I was buying them for someone else.
I looked at the options and asked myself "what would she like?".

While I was paying, the florist asked if I wanted to write a note.
I gladly accepted.
I had fun again writing myself some loving words.
When you are feeling sad, unloved or rejected, you know better than anybody else what you would like to hear.

It can also be a secret.
Nobody else in that flower shop knew that I was buying the flowers for myself.
It made the activity even more special and intimate.
As I crossed the street, smiling and holding the flowers on my hand, the feeling of "secret" and "special" continued.
Nobody else on that street knew that I was giving myself a wonderful gift.

Try buying yourself flowers one day, and see how much love you can give yourself :)
