Looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right? Great News! You've already found them.
Guess where? Just look in the mirror. :)
This may sound a bit cheesy, but there is a lot of truth to it. To find the "right" person, we also have to be the "right" person too. And how do we become Mrs. Right, you might ask?
The way that we want someone to treat us, is how we must learn to treat ourselves.
If you want someone patient, supportive, trusting, loyal, etc. with you, try being that way with yourself first.
Many of us beat ourselves up over the past or mistakes that we've made, but we would never tolerate that behavior coming from someone else, would we?
It's a simple thing to do but HARD. And so worth it.
We are taught that we must "find" love as if it's something we lost. We never lost anything. We simply just gave in to the idea that we did.
Having someone in our lives should enhance what we already have within us, not make us dependent on them to meet our emotional needs.
Many of us have to learn this through failed relationships and that is perfectly ok. As long as we learn from our experiences, that's all that matters.
And another thing: The way we feel when we are alone is the same way that we'll feel when we're in a relationship with someone else.
Our culture has taught us that we should never be or do things alone. But at the end of the day, behind closed doors when no one is watching, the one person still around is you.
If we can't face ourselves when we are alone, chances are we won't be able to either in our relationships and your partner will see that eventually. Your relationship with yourself is the most important one you will ever have. Having someone else is not a cure to loneliness, boredom or any other negative emotions we feel.
If we can strive to learn to be the person of our dreams, we will feel more fulfilled in our lives and have healthier relationships with others.
