Build Relationship on Faith
Jasbina Ahluwalia asks Heather Hans, author of The Heart of Self-Love: It’s also a lot like faith, in terms of having faith in life and yourself. I can see how confidence would be so important and fundamental to the well-being of health and relationships.
How does a lack of self-confidence eat away at health and relationships?
Relationship on Faith: Don’t Test Faith
I love how you said “faith.” It is faith.
People don’t have to test faith. They don’t have to go on faith blindly.
If you look back at your life, you can see that nothing has killed you yet.
Build Relationship on Faith: Growth
Usually, the hard things make us even stronger. It’s on faith and trust that you’ve made it this far and you’re going to keep growing.
Build Relationship on Faith not Pessimism
When people don’t have confidence, it destroys health and relationships because cynicism and pessimism lead to major emotional stress.
Stress is the number one cause of disease.
Build Relationship on Faith, Avoid Stress
When you’re in a relationship, it’s more complex than just being on your own. When you add stress to a relationship, and even more complex system, it makes that relationship all the more complex and stressful.
Any time we are cynical or pessimistic, which is the opposite of confidence, our health is diminished. Our relationships are diminished.
Build Relationship on Faith: Start With a Thought
Every part of our life is the way it is because of the thoughts that we’ve had. Our thoughts create our life. Everything starts with a thought.
We’ve agreed to certain thoughts that we’ve had, even those cynical and pessimistic thoughts. We’ve believed they were true, which means that we agreed to them. Therefore, they wreak havoc in our lives.
If a person doesn’t believe that they can have what they want, they don’t believe in themselves or they don’t believe in good relationships, then they likely won’t have it.
You have to believe to get there in the first place.
Relationship on Faith: Example of An Idea
I’ll give you a quick, concrete example.
Let’s say there is an architect who wants to build a building. They have to first have the idea of the building. Then they have to believe that they can do it. Then they get the labor and materials that go into it.
If they never believe they can then the building doesn’t get built. It’s simple, but not always easy.
Building a relationship of faith sounds appealing; do you have the keys to do so? Share your tips with us in the comments section below.
