How To Develop A Relationship With Self

As I searched over my life, I realized that this is the most important thing one can do for self. The proof of developing a healthy relationship with ones self is when we can be content with being alone with self. Keep in mind that the only person that we are assured of being with for the rest of our lives is self. Anybody else is subject to leave, or walk out of your life, anybody else is subject to die. You are the only person that is guaranteed to be with you for the rest of your life, this is where the inner work comes into play and puts you in a healthy place.

There were times when I was ashamed and embarrassed of my behavior, I wasn’t being true to myself because I did not know who I was. I recall telling myself “I can’t believe I did this!”, I gathered an understanding that I did not have a grip of myself. I ended up fighting with others opinions, my flesh, and loss my sense of identity. One of the worse we can do is connect ourselves to someone else instead of self, because we are expecting them to make us whole and give us identity. So let me give you three things I did to grow a relationship with myself.

1. Learn your history- Have the hard conversation that is needed. Where did you come from? Although it will not determine where you are going, it will give you clarity on why you are the way you are by revealing the core.

2. Accept a season of aloneness- Go on dates alone, do whatever it takes to make YOU happy.

3. Teach yourself to fulfill yourself- Surround yourself with positivity, this is huge for me! The only person that can protect your peace is you. Help others, I love to serve others it is what makes me better by giving me a sense of well-being.
