Self love is the foundation to any successful relationship. When you’re in love it is easy to put your partner’s needs ahead of yours. Maintaining your self love is important. Ignite Your Potential professionals have curate tips to help you maintain and grow your self-love while loving others.
“Self-love is not selfish; you cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself.”
Maintain Mental and Physical Health
Keeping your mind and body healthy exemplifies your love for yourself. In order to keep your mind healthy, avoid ignoring or dismissing your feelings. If you support others, when you are not mentally balanced, you will become drained, mentally and physically. Consider seeing a therapist or coach to cultivate mental wellness. Smart people see therapists and coaches in order to review what is going on in their minds and with their emotions. It’s a space to process all the things you experience day to day.
“Mind and body are not separate, what affects one, affects the other.”
Alone time gives you space to self-reflect, track your goals, and grow as an individual. It’s hard to dedicate attention to your own needs if you are often preoccupied with someone else or with your work life. Include “me” time in your schedule to do something you genuinely enjoy. Your quality of life will thrive.
“When we can be alone, we can enjoy time with others without using them as a means to escape.”
Know Your Worth
Develop a relationship with yourself first, in other words, be your own best friend. Once you recognize your value, others will too. Then, when the right person comes along, it’s a great addition instead of a dependency for self-worth.
“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.”
Ignite Your Potential coaches, suggest entering relationships as a “whole person” looking for another whole person to blend and share a beautiful life with. As opposed to a “half” looking for another “half” to complete you. This will make a difference in the quality of your relationships.
“A healthy relationship is when two individuals come together and agree to help make the other person the best version of themselves.”
