Cultivating Healthy Relationships

There are numerous persons in my life whose message has touched my very being. There is no doubt that their knowledge and insight has inspired me. In this post, I acknowledge what I have learned from other people – family, friends and acquaintances. I am full of gratitude for every relationship regardless of its size or scope. I have chosen to magnify their importance here by writing three positive affirmations inspired by each person’s quote.

You said,

“Making the best of relationships means listening to and learning about what’s inside another person’s heart that resonates with you.”

I affirm:

I am mindful as I go about the day. I am conscious and aware of my emotional and physical bodies. I carry myself through the day to day motions with ease, knowing all will be well.

You said,

“Treasure yourself.”

I affirm:

When I love myself, I can look at my reflection in the mirror and tell myself, “I love you, I really love you.” I use positive affirmations daily to affirm my being. I use my talents and capabilities to enrich my life and the lives of those around me.

When I am feeling negative emotions, I simply recognize where I am. I find a method that works for me to release these emotions with love. Only then, when I have set myself free, do I actively engage in changing my state of mind to become more positive.

I affirm:

I recognize the importance of the message “I love you,” and I take it to heart. When I love somebody else, I start by loving myself first. I can say “I love you” in many different ways to allow love to flourish in my relationships.
