Whether or not you struggle from a mental illness, bad days are inevitable. We all can fall into the trap of questioning our worthiness or even if we deserve to receive love.

This Valentines Day, whether you will be spending it with a significant other, a friend, a family member, yourself or your dog (guilty as charged), I’m here to tell you that you are deserving of love, not just on this day, but on the other 364 days of the year too. Here are some Valentines that I think we all would be happy to receive this Sunday or any day.
