You know the announcement they have before each flight about safety measures in case of emergency – put your own oxygen mask first and help others after. Why? Because you cannot help anyone if you’re gasping for air! The same applies to love and acceptance – you need to love and value yourself before you can love and value others. Otherwise relationships you form are based on a need for someone to fill a void that you have within yourself, not on a connection you have with another human being – it’s more like a contract with many expectations which your partner / friend / child is unable to fill and results in stress, disappointment and drama.
Loving yourself also helps you live a life accordingly to who you truly are – you choose situations, experiences, jobs, relationships that are in tune with your preferences, passions, needs and boundaries. You are confident to say YES when something feels right and NO when it doesn’t. You walk your life path mindfully and with no regrets.
I have walked a path of pleasing others for years and for years I couldn’t understand why I’m not happy, why my relationships fail, why my jobs feel unsatisfying. Inner work through various workshops, courses and therapy helped – I understood my beliefs and thought patterns but something was still missing. So from the tools I’ve gathered over the course of my life I developed this programme for myself to get connected with who I am and learn to appreciate and value myself more. And now I’m sharing it with you!
