So, I made a video to chat you up on some stuff I’ve been learning on self love, including a couple notes that remain a personal challenge to me. It’s SO important to remain humble in our relationships, even if we get hurt. Even when things get tough.
4 Signs You’ve Got it Down & Are ready for a Relationship
The easiest direction to turn, when hurt in a relationship- is away from your partner, which is not ever, ever going to strengthen your relationship. While I’m no relationship expert, I feel compelled as usual, to share both the highs and lows of my personal life’s lessons with you and this is an important one!
So instead of turning away, retreating, running away or fighting, (or sometimes AFTER trying these and remember that they DON’T WORK) I often find that refocusing on what I CAN do and what I CAN change- mainly my own behaviors and perspective- are the healthiest and most positive solutions.
Self-help and relationship books like Getting the Love You Want by Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, plus my daily bible readings seem to bring me calm and center my mind and heart. And recently I shared a little video about 4 specific ways we can take account of ourselves and measure our emotional health and ability to self-love. Here they are:
- Don’t hide you are.
- Don’t accept bad treatment.
- Fully accept and enjoy being loved.
- You aren’t afraid of being hurt.
I snagged these from a newsletter via The Hendrix’s, who are New York Time’s best selling authors on relationship books. Sharing this inspirational reminder to spend time on yourself so that you can become a better partner, friend, mom or family member. Thanks and God Bless!
PS I am NOT perfect nor would I consider myself a diligent and consistent reader of my bible. I certainly wish I were better at maintaining these habits, so I am always striving to get back on track when I fall away…
