As the song goes, “It takes two! It takes two! Me and you!”
It takes TWO healthy individuals in order for a relationship to have a shot at being consistently stable and happy.
If we want a healthy relationship, guess what?
We have to love OURSELVES first people!
Are you giving yourself enough self-love?
Here are just a few of the many ways that we can mentally learn to love ourselves more:
*Watch HOW you are talking to yourself!
Filter your negative self-talk as much as possible. Bottom line - if you wouldn’t say it to your best friend, why are you saying it to yourself?
*Focus on what you DO have versus what you don’t! There is always something positive to focus on, even if it’s a small thing. Gratitude is one of the keys to happiness and essential in truly loving your life!
*Stay away from assumptions! We unnecessarily suffer so much by assuming we know what others are thinking. Don’t beat yourself up over a made-up “fact” in your head. Before you let yourself get stuck in the web of assumption, ask yourself - Is this an assumption or a fact?
