It comes as no surprise that when we’re stressed, our partners feel it; they can sometimes even take the brunt of it. Mine will be the first to remind me to make sure I’m taking care of myself, for us both.
As 2020 rages on, I’d like to remind everyone of a few things to do to stay seated firmly in care of self, care of our loves, and care of our relationships.
- Correct your criticism with compassion, Remind yourself of your beauty and your positive qualities.
- Find the daily accomplishments that you completed; acknowledge your partners wins, and share your gratitudes.
- Be vulnerable with yourself and your partner. Share the mundane and the shameful. Hold theirs. Hold yours. Ask questions-hold their hand.
- Surround yourself with the messages that will enable you to do the above. The feeds, the threads, the streams, the news sources, the friends, and the family.
Mostly, remember to assume best intentions, and allow them to mess up sometimes; especially if you want that grace in return.
Holding you in the light.
