The New Year is a great time to reflect on why good relationships were good and why the bad ones went sour. We've composed three relationship resolutions to help you make healthier connections in the New Year.
1. Be ok with just you first. Are you someone who always finds yourself in one relationship after another without any time to process between relationships? A new year is a perfect time to take inventory of the qualities you possess that make you great. If you don’t know who you are, you put yourself at serious risk for being molded into what someone else wants you to be. And let’s be real, nobody wants that.
2. Trade in your one night stands. If you are serious about relationships, you will stop the hook ups. You know, the ones where the attraction is only physical and you know from the first hello that this isn’t going anywhere past tonight? Not only will this help you steer clear of STDs or a potential unplanned pregnancy, but it will also send the message to the right guys that you find worth in what you can offer. Which brings us to our third resolution…
3. Know your worth. If you’ve been treated poorly in the past, it can be tempting to slip back into negative relationships. Doing this sets you up for hurt and failure right from the beginning. Stop telling yourself there is something in your life that makes you not deserve friendship, kindness, respect and genuine love. Instead, remember that you’ve been uniquely, purposely and beautifully created. Trust us, it’s so true.
