Love Reset Day is marked every year on February 15 which is the day after Valentine’s Day. For many, the day of love can be a rude awakening, when they realize that traditional romance is not as fulfilling as it seems, leading to a journey of self-discovery and self-love. The Love Reset Day started as a 30-day challenge that gives people the opportunity to evaluate the quality of their relationships and identify areas that require nurturing for sustainable and long-lasting relationships. It is a day that calls for deep introspection with the aim of making relationships fulfilling.
History of Love Reset Day
“Be worthy love, and love will come.” This is a famous quote from Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel “Little Women,” and it is very much applicable today. It is very easy to project one’s expectations and repeat patterns in relationships, which is why it is important to focus inward and be compassionate to yourself. It must be said, though, that self-love doesn’t always mean dramatic changes or healing; sometimes it is just to be kind to yourself and not devalue one’s worth, especially when it comes to romantic relationships. Ironically, this realization hits often after Valentine’s Day. It is common for relationships to go haywire or fall apart on Valentine’s Day when expectations are at their peak. Perhaps it is because one is looking for love in all the wrong places?
Love Reset Day was created on February 15, 2018, by Carla Lynn Hall, owner of the DatingRelating.com blog. Inspired by romance and its elements, Carla has spent most of the past decade coaching women about relationships. She is also a moderator for the Facebook group Secret Feminine Magnetism. After witnessing an increase in wedding engagements amongst women in the Facebook group in 2015, Carla realized that many women joined the group because they needed a safe space to regulate their romantic feelings.
According to Carla, Love Reset Day is right after Valentine’s Day because that is when many face upheavals in their love lives. She believes that a Love Reset Day is just what is needed for a person to take back their power and improve themselves to make better romantic choices.
