Nurture Yourself in Relationships: Navigating Life's Rollercoaster

Surrounding Yourself with Positive and Supportive People

Here we are again wrapping up another month of self-growth and exploration. We’ve looked at how our relationships are impacted by the transitions and transformation that come with this part of our lives – that includes our relationships with our partners, friends, family, colleagues, and most importantly, with ourselves.


Relationships add texture and color to the beautiful tapestry of life. Whether it’s your besties who make you laugh until you cry, your kids who challenge you to tap into the best version of yourself every day, or your partner who walks shoulder-to-shoulder with you on your journey, it would be hard to imagine having a fully technicolor life without them and they play an important role for you to nurture yourself.


When you really pause to think about it, we are part of a vast web of interrelationships where each individual brings their own stories, histories, beliefs, fears, and dreams to the party. 🎉


If you think about it like that, it’s no wonder that they bring joy, love, passion, and purpose to our lives AND that they can also be a source of frustration, anger, pain, resentment, and grief. 


But remember – the reason they hold all of these emotions at once is because they matter to you. 


And all things that have meaning are going to take you on an emotional rollercoaster. It’s just part of walking this planet as a human.


Given that, how do you navigate the ups and downs of being in a relationship with other human beings who are also struggling with their own stories, programming, and baggage? 


Prioritize to nurture yourself cause your relationship with yourself is key.


It all starts with you. Until you start learning to love, care, and tend to yourself as much as you do everyone else, every argument, snide comment, and hurt feeling along the way will throw you off balance, and pull you further and further off course.


Does that mean taking a walk every morning and journaling regularly will promise you a drama and trauma-free life?


Not a chance. 🚫🙅‍♀️


But taking steps to focus on you will help you stay centered and balanced. It will help you respond instead of reacting. It will help you get curious so you can observe yourself without judgment. 


And when you do slip up – because that’s also a given – you will be able to reflect and then clean it up. 


When you have clarity about who you are and what’s important to you, and you can stand in your power and advocate for yourself, then everything in your life – including your relationships – becomes richer and more vibrant. 🌈


I know you already know this, but it bears repeating. This is a process. It takes time and patience and love and compassion for yourself. 


What I can guarantee is this: prioritize to nurture yourself cause if you invest even a fraction of what you’ve given to others into your own self, you WILL find what you’re looking for. 


And who doesn’t want that? 😁
