How to build a healthy and loveful relationship with yourself?

You may have heard phrases like "The relationship you have with yourself defines the relationship you have with others."

This is absolutely true because the way you treat yourself is the way others will treat you. 

Sometimes I have a hard time remembering to take care of myself because I get so focused on the people I like. I schedule everything around them and forget about my own needs. It's like they've become the most important things in my life.

Guess what happens next?

I depend on them for my emotional needs and happiness, and they have no choice but to leave me. 

Sometimes I feel like I need someone else to be happy, but that's not true. It's because when I was little, I didn't love myself enough. That's why I work on loving myself now, so I can have a happy life and attract good things to me.

If you find it hard to make good friends or get along with others, it's important to start being kind to yourself. When you like who you are, you will feel happy inside. You don't need to depend on other people to make you happy.

Why build a healthy and secure relationship with self?

If you have taken vows of marriage with someone or you are committed to someone, you'll say its obvious that your partner has to take care of your needs and vice versa.

While its good to have someone who values and takes care of you but if you are not doing it to yourself in the first place, they will not reciprocate the same. 

After all, you know what is best for you at the end of the day.

So lets find out how we can maintain a loveful and healthy relationship with ourselves in simple yet easy ways.

1. Prioritize your self-care: Sacrificing your eating, sleeping and working routine for someone will not take you anywhere except taken for granted. This is why it is essential to take care of yourself by getting enough sleep, eating healthy, staying active, taking breaks, doing fun things, and developing good habits for your mind. By doing these things, you'll feel better and have a better relationship with yourself. It might take some time to develop these habits, but they're really important and can be hard to keep up if you're not taking care of your body and mind.

2. Create healthy habits: If you want to get out of the pattern of feeling abandoned or left out, you have to take certain actions and stick to them. Start your day in a way that increases the chances that it will support your goals for your relationships. Writing down daily goals the night before and reviewing them first thing in the morning can be helpful for some people. Others can revisit these concepts in their minds since they are still fresh. Make small goals, take one step at a time, and be constant and disciplined towards them.

3. Stop the inner criticism: Negative self-talk can take a toll on our mental health without realizing it. So you must stop the criticism the moment it hits you. Take note of how you're feeling: is your heart rate up, do you feel upset, and are you talking quickly and harshly to yourself? Consider taking your time, being patient and kind to yourself, allowing yourself to cool off, taking another look at the problem, and trying again.

4. Invest in your own company: The ability to disconnect from the outside world and connect deeply can be achieved through alone time. If you are desperate to go out and enjoy life, this means you are not liking and enjoying your own company. Thus, if you can't enjoy spending time with yourself, why do you think someone else will come and sit with you? You don't need to go on a big trip by yourself; even a short time alone can help. You could go on a drive or walk on a pretty trail by yourself. When you're alone, you can focus on getting to know yourself better.

5. Set boundaries: Setting emotional and physical boundaries is a must to avoid getting heartbroken in the end. Setting boundaries can be uncomfortable at first, especially if you're not used to doing it, but practice, it will help you pay attention to your needs and become more dependable around other people. The two will eventually enable you to improve your interactions with both others and yourself.


At the end of the day, your connection with yourself affects how you perceive yourself, communicate with yourself, and interact with others; as a result, it has a significant impact on all other facets of your life.
Because of this, it may be crucial to seek to strengthen this relationship through self-care, recognizing and accepting your own feelings, and possibly even visiting a therapist.
