Your relationships are a reflection you. You build them based on how you see yourself, and how you feel about the person you are influences the way others interact with you.
The need for acceptance rests at the heart of all relationships. I hear and read many people’s ideas, claiming that the need for acceptance is a sign of weakness. But human beings are social creatures. Our lives, our happiness, and even our survival depends on our interactions with member of our social groups, including our significant others, our children, our parents, friends, and even co-workers.
Relationships, both good and bad, can always get better.
Each day, choose a relationship from 2013, and take 10-15 minutes to write answers to these questions about it:
1) How did you allow the relationship to affect you?
2) What did you learn from the relationship?
3) What are your regrets and what can you do improve that relationship?
Use your answers to help you develop healthy relationships in 2014.
