You may have heard this before, ‘you can’t make a relationship work if you don’t know yourself well.’ It is important to be self-aware because it gives you a better understanding of why you feel a particular way in a situation. It helps to know why you have a bias toward one thing but not another. This can help pave the way for discussion and coming to a compromise with your partner. However, no given guarantee being self-aware will provide a successful relationship. You also need to be aware of your partner’s needs and your needs as a couple.

You might have a good understanding of a matter that you can help your partner with. For example, if you have a history of being easily anxious, some self-reflection may help you understand what your triggers are, and you may be able to work out ways in which your partner can help you to manage your anxiety. This understanding of self can help you both understand what is happening in your world and increase a stronger connection.

Positive affirmations are positive phrases or statements used to challenge negative or unhelpful thoughts. Have you ever found yourself wondering how bad things are, and that becomes a pattern? The brain is generally prone to think negatively, which is why it is important to fight them with hope and positivity.

Learning to love yourself can be difficult if you don’t hear those kind words growing up. However, it is never too late to begin to consciously affirm loving, kind words of self. Sometimes we need to forgive ourselves to truly love others. Loving and respecting yourself will encourage your partner to respect you back. Respect is needed for a happy, loving relationship.
