Welcome to August, I am a little late getting this to you. It’s been a busy time of online training for the Resource Therapy Institute – sorry!
Know that I am sending you all love, support, and appreciation for wherever you are on your relationship journey.
Married, de facto, or single, we at Marriage Works seek to assist you live your life’s dreams and highest potential. I do work with singles for coaching to help you change past patterns of relationship and assist you in repairing your self- worth. You are lovable and good enough, truly!
The theme for this month is Self- Respect.
Naturally people want respect in their relationships.
When I ask what this means in therapy sessions, I often get either a stunned look or a few descriptions rattled off.
We often haven’t really had the chance to ponder what respect and self-respect are. How they play out.
This is your mission for the month to think on what it means and how Self Respect shows up for you, or not as the case may be.
What is my definition of Self Respect ?
How do I allow this to show up in my life? What values am I connecting with when I do this?
Self Respect is both an action and an internal compass. It can be as simple as what I choose to eat – is it nourishing for my body. Where my focus goes, is it toward my goals? Am I listening to myself or am I looking for external approval for acknowledgement.
How do I validate my thoughts and feelings. Do I speak kindly, compassionately to myself.
Would I treat others better than I treat myself, ie would I not listen to my intuition and tolerate unhelpful patterns out of fear?
Is my need for approval leading me to lose my self respect? How do I regain the balance?
Please share as I am extremely curious, especially in this world COVID crisis as to how you live this or reconnect with the treasure you are. When we treat ourselves with dignity and gravitas, how do others respond?
Love to hear drop a comment in the box below your musings and definitions. Thanks ever so much,
Love Philipa xox
