You Have to Read Meghan Markle’s 2015 Post About Valentine’s Day

Meghan Markle might be married to Prince Harry, but that doesn’t mean she’s never lived that single-girl life.

In fact, back in 2015 (before she started dating Harry), the 37-year-old duchess wrote a thoughtful post about Valentine’s Day on her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig. Spoiler alert: It has nothing to do with date night or flowers or chocolate.

According to People, the actress-turned-future-royal wrote, “I think you need to be your own Valentine.” Preach. 

The admitted “sucker for Valentine’s Day” went on to credit her former Suits costars, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres, for teaching her that lesson.

“Last season I was chatting with my Suits sister wives, Sarah and Gina, and was in some sort of funk, bemoaning something that was so futile I don’t even remember what it was now. But I was faaaaaar from showing [myself] self love,” she wrote. “One of them stopped me…and said, ‘Hey! That’s my friend you’re talking about. Be nice to her.’”

“They were protecting me from myself,” she added. “From my own criticism, and my own self doubt. They were reminding me to treat myself as well as I treat those closest to me. To be my own valentine.”

 See that? Love yourself first and maybe, just maybe, you’ll end up with a prince.
