The most challenging relationship we all have is NOT the one with our parents, our children, our spouse or significant other.
It’s not the one with our friends, roommates, colleagues, or clients.
The hardest relationship we have is the one with ourselves.
This relationship is then reflected back to us in ALL the others.
Brene Brown shares in her work that, “…belonging starts with self-acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self-acceptance, because believing that you’re enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect.”
We cannot ever truly belong anywhere else until we belong fully to ourselves.
The relationship we have with ourself is what ultimately defines all our other relationships.
I challenge you to honestly reflect on the relationship you have with yourself.
Do you nurture or neglect this relationship? How do you speak to yourself? It is kind or cruel? Is this relationship mired down with judgement or do you allow for grace and understanding? Do you look at yourself with love and compassion or with an ever critical eye?
If you dare go deeper, look to see in what ways this relationship with yourself is then mirrored back to you in the ones you have with others.
You will find that it always begins and ends with you.
It’s time to commit to redefining your relationship with yourself.
