“It’s only when we give to ourselves as passionately as we give of ourselves that we create the life we want and deserve.” - Suze Orman
Orman typically talks about money (and was doing so with this quote, too) but I think her idea is very relevant for relationships. Too often partners – and women in particular – focus so much on giving to others in their lives that they forget to take care of themselves.
Here are just a few of the ideas women have shared with me about how they take care of themselves: reset weekends away from the family; creating a private quiet zone in their home to which they can escape; ‘shopping therapy’; taking courses that excite them; exercising; changing their diets; writing and more.
What have you done lately that serves only one purpose – to take care of yourself?
