The relationship you have with yourself is the most important one you’ll have in your life. While it’s important to make others happy and spend time building healthy connections with other people, you need to spend time on yourself. You shouldn’t view yourself as half a person, needing some form of relationship to make you whole. Invest the same energy you spend on other people with yourself and you will notice a world of difference.
Celebrate Your Body
We all have those days when we look in a mirror and don’t like what we see. It can be far too easy for us to find a dozen flaws rather than one thing we like. When you’re experiencing these feelings take a moment to celebrate everything your body does for you. Your hands to hold your loved ones. Your eyes see the world around you. Your legs to run, or walk, or dance. Your body is a miracle. Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin.
How do you feel about spending time alone? Maybe you revel in the idea of relaxing with a good book and switching off. But what about spending time alone in public? There is certainly something to be said for taking yourself out for dinner. It’s a chance for you to enjoy your own company and watch the world go by. You may worry everyone in the restaurant is judging you, but trust us – no one will mind. You may be surprised to find just how many people enjoy dining alone.
Cut Toxic Relationships
Think about this: your best friend is seeing someone who never puts any effort into the relationship and is constantly being emotionally manipulated. You’d tell them they need to stop seeing this person, right? You also need to do with yourself. Evaluate the people in your life. Are you getting back what you put in? This should be applied to both your romantic and platonic relationships. Know your self-worth.
