What’s your purpose? Many people drift through life, with no sense of purpose, direction or true joy. They ignore the fact that they aren’t happy and never address the mindset and choices that led to that unhappiness. Most people have limiting beliefs and so their life is limited. They believe life is hard, and so it is. They believe life is a challenge, and challenges seem to pile one atop another. They believe either consciously or unconsciously that their best days are behind them. They believe fitting in and being who they are expected to be will get them a better or easier life than being their true self and following their true passion. Their happiness is dependent on what others thinks and what happens. They are not in control of life; life is in control of them.
Over the next 10 days, we will be sharing one of 10 empowering beliefs about life and this is Day #7! These are beliefs that will open the door for life to work with you and for you. Once these beliefs become part of who you are, your entire life will change. Guaranteed.
#7 Your most important relationship is with yourself.
Loving yourself is the best kind of love. It allows us to connect to our soul's purpose and live the life that we want. In the words of Louise Hay, “Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.”
The relationship with yourself is the most important relationship that you will ever have. Having a healthy relationship with yourself means that you have a strong belief in yourself. You are comfortable in your own skin, to the point where you do not need validation from others in order to feel whole.
Studies show that individuals who do take care of themselves and who show self-interest without selfishness are happier. When you feel good about yourself, it complements every other relationship that you have.
It’s best summed up by the final line from Dear Even Hanson - "Dear Evan Hansen, today is going to be a great day and here's why: because today at least you're you and, well, that's enough."
