Build Sense of Connection
Jasbina Ahluwalia asks Heather Hans, author of The Heart of Self-Love: Speaking of connection, what do you believe is the most life-changing tip for having those fulfilling relationships that add to our sense of connection?
Build Sense of Connection: Love Yourself
It’s probably no surprise, but when you treat yourself with love, you will bring loving people and loving relationships into your life.
Your outer world reflects your inner world.
Build Sense of Connection: Treat Yourself with Respect
You teach others how to treat you by the way you treat yourself. The more you love, respect, honor and show compassion for yourself, the more likely you are going to have people in your life who do the same.
I don’t want people to just take my word for it. Experiment with this and see how people treat you differently when you are treating yourself with respect, love and compassion.
Sense of Connection: Tried and Tested
See how they treat you when you’re not doing that and not giving yourself self-care. There are many people who have really big hearts and they treat everyone else well but themselves.
Then they wonder why they’re stepped on like a doormat. It’s because they’ve taught all these people that they’re really not worth taking care of, because they’re not taking care of themselves.
Sense of Connection: Start With Yourself
It doesn’t matter how much love you give to another person. If you’re not giving it to yourself, you’re not teaching people to give it to you. We’re bigger role models than we realize.
