Surround yourself with people who clap for you
A big part of growing a kinder relationship with yourself, is making kind choices about who you surround yourself with. So many of us get stuck in relationships and friendships which make us feel bad about ourselves. The trouble with so many of these relationships is that the longer we stay and the worse we feel about ourselves, the harder it is to find the confidence and courage to get out. We start to make excuses and live in hope that things will get better, or we will (at last) change them or do better ourselves. More and more, this also plays itself out on social media, where we follow people who leave us feeling insecure and unloved. In relationships we need to conside r where there is room to Change, Accept or Leave. Can we change this dynamic by asking for change and making suggestions, or doing something different ourselves? Do we need to accept things the way they are, and shift our expectations and involvement? Or, would it be healthier to find a way to leave that is not hurtful or unkind? On the flip side, start to actively surround yourself and invest in relationships which make you feel good about yourself and get you doing things which are healthy. Simply put, surround yourself with people who clap for you!
