Your most important relationship?
When I ask people what their most important relationship is, the one that has changed them most, taught them the most, and grown them the most, I get different answers; from parents to lovers, friends to co-workers, teachers and bosses. When I ask what relationship has given them the most heart-ache, dysfunctional or broken relationships come to mind.
We have so many relationships
Throughout our lives we go in and out of relationships, some last and some don’t. Some change us, some grow us and some hurt us. Every interaction is essential a relationship. Some matter more than others of course. We might have a relationship with the person, who sells us our morning coffee, and even if it is just a hello, how are you, have a good day kind of relationship, it is still an interaction that affects us and how we start our day.
We also have a relationship with money, we have a relationship with food, we have a relationship with work and we have relationship with people, who are either family or feel like family, because we feel connected in a soul-best-friend kind of way. And of course, romantic relationships and the one we typically think of as our relationship – marriage.
It starts with you
However, I believe that the relationship with have with ourselves, affects all the relationships we have with everything else and everyone else. Now it is a tall order to change the relationship we have with ourselves, because it has been many years in the making. Our stories and memories, experiences, hurts and happy moments, all add up to a perspective, a filter, a viewpoint and a belief about ourselves, that we overlay on our choices for self-care every day.
Now if you know me, you know that my pet-peeve is our relationship with self-care at work. I even spoke at the UN Headquarters in NYC recently about it. And that is also what I will be speaking about at this free online interview series starting February 14th.
