The Empowering Team likes this short and provocative article about loving yourself and letting go of judgment. With all the relationship books on the market perhaps this perspective from The Daily Love blog site, authored by Kute Blackson, holds the key to healthy intimacy.
Are you ready?

The time has come to marry yourself.

Your relationship with yourself is the foundation of your relationship with others.

There are so many books on relationships. How to get a man. How to keep a man. How to find your soulmate. How to be the best lover. How to make a woman fall in love with you.

But the most important relationship is with you.

You are the one that you have been seeking.

You can have the best lover in the world. But unless you have you, you have nothing.

When you are connected to yourself, you have everything.

When you fall in love with yourself, you connect to a source of real fulfillment and joy that is powerful. You are full, no longer needing someone outside to love or validate you. Then you can go into relationships from a place of sharing the love that is already in your heart, rather than seeking love outside.

This will completely shift your relationships. No longer seeking to get someone outside of yourself to give you what you may not be giving your self. Trying to get someone outside of your self to love you in order to feel worthy or secure is a sure recipe for suffering and insecurity.

How is your relationship with yourself?

Relationships are simply a dynamic mirror and you attract to yourself where you are in consciousness. You attract to you at the level you are now. Relationships are an emotional feedback mechanism.  Thank the partner that shows up in your life, for they give you the gift to seeing yourself more clearly and reveal to you where your growth lies.

So, you are constantly in relationship with yourself. Those that show up in your life are an aspect and mirror manifestation of you.

Do you like what you see? Do you like who you are in relationship with? Do you like who you are attracting?

If not, you must start with You.

Make a commitment to yourself today, not in a superficial or narcissistic way, but a real heart commitment to your growth and evolution.

Commit to being faithful with yourself even when it might be tempting to compromise and sell out your truth.

Commit to listening to your feelings and honoring them even when it’s difficult and those in your life are pressuring you otherwise.

Commit to being compassionate with yourself and bringing love to the parts of you that most challenge you.

Commit to showing up for yourself fully and following through on your commitments.

Commit to nourishing your connection with your Soul, and spirit, in a world that constantly tries to condition you.

If you aren’t going to love and accept YOU, then why should someone else?

Even if you are in a relationship.

Be your own soulmate.

Marry yourself for real.

Will you?
