Our relationships with others often reflect the health of our relationship with ourselves. If you’re someone who enjoys your own company, you set a high standard for the relationships you allow into your life. A loving relationship with yourself means you’re less inclined to settle for partners who don’t treat you with equal respect and kindness.
Conversely, if you’re unhappy with yourself, you might tolerate subpar relationships because, occasionally, they may make you feel better about yourself than when you are alone. I hear many people lament, “Why am I being treated this way?” The answer often lies in how we love, perceive, and treat ourselves. People will seldom treat you better than how you treat yourself.
