Learn How to Bring Your Best Self to Any Relationship

Entering into relationships require a lot from us. When we bring our best selves, a positive outcome is always expected. For many reasons, people can hide or pull back from putting their best self forward because they have worries, fears, or anxieties about how they may be perceived. Who we choose to surround ourselves with ultimately has a larger impact on overall health (and recovery) than we realize. Learn some tips for how to bring your best self to any relationship.

First Love

There are many songs about love out there, but very few talk about loving oneself. The idea seems almost conceited, that you should love yourself first before you can love others. However, this adage proves itself out time and again. Nobody can make you love yourself and nobody should try. You should have received love and kindness growing up in your family of origin, but many people feel they lack the love they desire when they get older, regardless of how they were raised. Respect those around you by first learning to love yourself, faults and all, and see what happens as a result.

Know What You Want

Knowing what you want out of a relationship is crucial. If it is a business relationship, there is likely already a clear objective laid out before you. If it is romantic, knowing what you want out of both a partner and relationship as a whole matters. When you and the other person involved are able to get on the same page, the relationship can progress and everyone will enjoy it more deeply. If you don’t know what you want, you’ll keep looking within yourself until you find it, but it may be a challenge.

Be Honest

The biggest thing in any relationship is honesty. You have to be honest if you are going to have relationships that are meaningful. When you are honest with yourself, you can be honest with others about what you want and don’t want to have happen in relationships. Putting your best foot forward means honoring how you feel and also honoring how others feel and learning that being your best self does not mean being like everyone else. It means learning to navigate relationships in a way that builds opportunities for connection through integrity and being honest about who you are and what you want.
