I’m sure everyone has heard the saying, “You can’t be happy with someone else until you’re happy with yourself.” This is not cliche folks, this is totally accurate (in my opinion).
*As I’ve stated before I am not a doctor, psychiatrist, or therapist. These are just my opinions and experiences*
How can you be happy with someone else if you aren’t happy with yourself? The unhappiness will spread to other areas of your life – areas that need true happiness to survive. It’s important to be open and honest with yourself about your struggles. It’s important to admit things like, “I have low self-esteem”, “I have trust issues”, “I’m angry at myself for past mistakes”. Ultimately, recognizing those things will help you overcome them.
Everyone in this world has weaknesses. Some more than others and some worse than others. But that doesn’t mean that we are weak people. We are only weak, if we let our weakness control our lives. Despite all of the negativity you’ve endured throughout your life, there is still positivity out there. The things or people that have caused the negativity, the lack of trust, low self-esteem (etc.) are in the past.
Everything in today’s world is so focused on the negativity that we sometimes forget about all of the good that is actually in this world. The GOOD does exist. We just have to turn our worldly views off and take in the positivity that is there. For some of us, this is dealt with through a religious stand point and for others it’s not. However/wherever you get your positivity from (assuming it is healthy form of positivity), hold it in your heart for those times where it seems that the negativity just takes over.
As for negativity and relationships. We can’t get through anything with a negative outlook all the time. Talking about the things that hinder us from being our best, will allow us to slowly overcome them, so that we can fully invest in a relationship with someone who DESERVES our best.
