The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.
If you’ve ever had a bad day (a bad week? a bad month?) because of one single person, you know how true it is.
So if relationships are at the cornerstone of how we feel, how can we improve this area of our lives?
How can we deconstruct what there is to be improved (or, rather, worked on) in the first place?
If we move away from a fixed mindset (“well, that’s just the way am!”) to being curious about ourselves and having a growth mindset (“what ARE the areas where I can improve?”), we discover there is so much to learn, unlearn, and relearn.
But it’s not just about “improving” ourselves: it’s about leading lives where we show up in an authentic way, where we are true to ourselves and others, where we form real intimacy, where we are not afraid of uncomfortable growth, and where, by doing all this, we lead healthier lives.
In my episode, I summarise several (out of…an infinite list!) areas that we can start looking into – with practical guidance – if we want our relationships to be even more profound:
- how to listen deeply and respond with empathy,
- how to respond and not react,
- how to set healthy boundaries,
- how to uncover how we’ve been wired (how we see relationships, how we attach to people, etc.) because of our traumas,
- how to notice emotional manipulation and tendencies like codependency and narcissism.
I hope you listen to this episode (or watch it:) and invest this time into improving the things that are at the very core of our wellbeing.
