These posts are meant to lead you be your most empowered self and help you overcome those things that are holding you back from reaching your goals. Some of this might resonate with you, or not, and I’m not here to judge anyone or their actions, only to give you something to think about.
There just as many different relationship types as there are ways to be empowered. Some of these relationships and people we encounter empower us while others take away our power. What makes a healthy empowering relationship? One where you are self-reliant, you take care of yourself and together you communicate well, forgive, accept, trust and respect each other. That’s a tall order by most people’s standards. Not everyone is perfect and we can do and say things that may hurt the relationships we are in but as long as there is open communication, most things can be resolved. The important thing is that you keep those relationships that empower you (not enable you – there IS a difference).
I love this definition of an empowered relationship “empowerment in a relationship is when two people who come together are able to stand strong in knowing who they are, where they come from, where they’re going, and what they bring to the table.” When this is the reality, you have two healthy fulfilled people coming together as companions on life’s journey, rather than two halves, you are two wholes. This is sooo much healthier and secure. This is true for all types of relationships.
This week’s mantra:
“I will be empowered by my relationships.”
Write it down. Repeat it. BELIEVE IT!
