"The most important relationship in your life is the one you have with yourself."
The one you have with yourself is the foundation for all other relationships you form when it comes to relationships.
The moment you step into this world, you start dating yourself. And, like all relationships, you are influenced by various events, experiences, and traumas.
So, it's so important to prioritize creating a healthy relationship with yourself and healing your wounds to build better relationships with others in your life.
Here are 6 tips for strengthening your relationship with yourself.
1. Recognize negative self-talk
We all have an inner chatter going on in our heads. And more often than not, it's a self-sabotaging voice. So it is essential to notice when we start to talk down and criticize ourselves. Take a moment to stop and breathe. Recognize your thought pattern. And actively rewrite that script to a positive and a reassuring voice.
2. Practice self-acceptance
It is essential to accept all of you regarding self-acceptance and self-love. This includes the part of you you currently love, but most importantly, the parts you have been resenting, your insecurities and your flaws. Self-acceptance is to accept all of you as you are.
3. Surround yourself with loving people
Surround yourself with souls that bring out your light and allow you to be who you are without any judgement.
4. Listen to your body
Your body is a magical vessel that can guide and steer you in the direction that is most aligned with you. If you are in a situation or with someone who makes your stomach queasy, feel like your neck is stiffening, or your body language is closed off (crossed arms, legs, body turned away from the person), this is your body signalling your discomfort. Be mindful of your body changes and act accordingly to put yourself at ease.
5. Be kind to yourself
Treat yourself like you would a dear friend. Be kind to yourself at all times. Assure yourself that you are enough just the way you are. And just like you would for a friend, hold space for yourself to feel and be how you need to be.
6. Spend time alone
The best way to nurture a relationship is to invest time with it. Schedule alone time with yourself. Go for a nice long walk. Pick up a hobby that brings you joy. To spend alone time with yourself is to get to know yourself better.
Once you form a healthy relationship with yourself, based on love, acceptance and respect, you will also attract people in your life who will love you in the same light.
