When we talk about relationships, the relationship that is actually most important is the relationship you have with yourself.
So today, it’s about asking yourself or reflecting on, what is the relationship I have with me? How do I speak to myself? What’s the voice that goes on in my head?
When I think about me? Do I treat myself with love, compassion and kindness? Or, like many of us am I constantly berating myself? Am I judging myself way more harshly than I would ever judge anybody else? Am I holding myself to expectations that nobody could possibly meet? If I’m not perfect am I highly critical of me? If I’m tired do I listen to what my body’s saying and rest or do I think I have to push through and that I have to keep proving myself to everybody in order to be loved?
The question is, do you love you, and what is your relationship with you? It’s our relationship with ourselves that is the most important thing. It’s your relationship with yourself that’s the key indicator of how happy content and fulfilled you will be in your own life. The relationships you have with others are a bonus.
So if your relationship with you is struggling, if you know that you don’t love, accept and embrace all of who you are, then it’s time to do something about that. Because you’re the one that you travel through life with. And you’re the one that’s got to love you, before any of your other relationships are going to work.
So if you know that you need to do some work in this area, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. That’s the space that I work in. That’s the stuff that I love to help women with. I’ll put a link in below where you can book a time to have a chat if you’d like to. But please get that it’s really the relationship with you that makes all the difference.
So love, be compassionate and speak to yourself like you would your own best friend.
