Tumblr account of artist Shinga (Amanda Bussell), of Head Trip!

 

When I first saw this I just laughed and scrolled along, not thinking much of it.
Then it started to poke at my brain a bit, and I got to thinking about the “dating yourself” thing. Being kind to yourself, treating yourself like you’re trying to win yourself over. Woo yourself. Buy yourself a nice dinner, take you out to a movie, spend a quiet night in with a nice glass of wine and a bubble bath, give yourself some nice gifts once in a while, compliment yourself, be interested in yourself and find you as fascinating and wonderful as you would a person you’re in love with.
And yes this picture is silly and funny… but it’s also kind of sweet. Do things for you, compliment yourself, spoil yourself. You deserve to be treated wonderfully, and not just by other people.
