Research shows that those in supportive healthy relationships that are nurtured (especially in the rough times) tend to be happier. The same is true for our most personal relationship, the relationship with ourselves.
Many people I know are uncomfortable being alone for any length of time. Many also go quickly from one relationship to another so that they are not alone. They ignore their primary relationship — the one with themselves.
There will be those times when we find ourselves alone whether by choice or in between relationships. Our relationships will be healthier when we offer ourselves self-compassion. And, our choice to be alone will be richer when we commit to be in a healthy and supportive relationship with ourselves.
Meditation is the perfect place to begin to nurture the self — in meditation we practice self-care, self-compassion, and self-love. This weeks meditation is focused on being in a healthy relationship with yourself. I hope you find some settling within yourself and embracing your self in the quiet of meditation. I also wish you joy in a deeper connection with yourself.
