You may have heard of the love languages. The idea came from a book by…
Since its Valentine’s month, let’s talk about relationships.
We all have various types of relationships, not just romantic. We also have relationships with family, friends, co-workers, pets, food, money, drugs/alcohol, technology/social media, and most importantly yourself.
I bet there are one or two on that list you don’t think orf as a relationship.
We usually think about our relationships with people, but our relationship to food, money, drugs/alcohol or technology can significantly affect our life and health.
I thought this month would be a good time to take a minute and take stock of these different relationships in your life. Maybe make a list for yourself of the most significant relationships in your daily life and ask yourself how well each is serving you.
On social media, we can input our relationship status, how would you rate or define each of your relationships? Are you and food happily married or is it complicated?
Should you be separated from technology more frequently?
Here are a few questions you can ask yourself about each relationship:
- Is this relationship healthy for me?
- Does it make me feel good about myself?
- Do I receive as much as I give to this relationship?
- Does this relationship support my goals and what I need to do to achieve them?
If you answer mostly no to these questions, it might be time to take a look at what needs to change.
This might feel overwhelming but try to take it one step at a time and break things down into small pieces. If you’d like help reviewing your relationships and breaking down ways to change some things, feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to help.
