The support we get in our central relationships can make or break us. When we are not respected in these relationships, we lose enthusiasm, our self worth goes down the toilet, and we are in danger of slipping into apathy.
Supportive relationships that affirm our opinions, points of view and uphold us during times of challenge and triumph are necessary to keep us buoyant! When we choose partners, whether for marriage, business or friendship, that respect us, we are choosing to respect ourselves and giving ourself direct support for daily needs.
Look at those relationships that surround you now: in what ways do these relationships support you? In what ways do the people who surround you foster optimism? And lastly, does your community rejoice at your success?
