What comes to mind when you think about relationships? Do you just look at the relationship you have with your partner? What about the relationships you have with your family and friends? How do you feel about those relationships? Do you look at the relationship you have with yourself?
Some of our most cherished moments as well as our most testing moments are with those we are in close relationship with. Often our relationships act as a mirror and teacher for us.
Quite often it is easy to get upset about what is happening in a relationship and blame the other person for the way it is or what is going on. Ultimately we are all responsible for ourselves, our behaviour and our actions. If someone pushes your buttons be grateful to them as they are showing you something within you that you need to look at.
The most important relationship in this life is the one you have with yourself. How do you treat yourself? Do you give yourself a hard time? Do you treat yourself as a lovable worthwhile person? With a positive attitude and a sense of humour you can learn greater self acceptance and develop a greater love of yourself. Once you believe in yourself and hold yourself in high regard others will too.
Why not start liking and appreciating yourself a little bit more starting today? Relationships may come and go however the relationship you have with yourself lasts forever. Love and appreciate you!
