Know what you'd do in the event of a breakup, a job loss, the freaking apocalypse. 

Have a savings account, an escape already planned.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Identify The Root Of Problems

Once you know where it began, you can realize that you perhaps adopted the wrong idea about yourself based on what you thought was true in the moment.

If you struggle with low self-esteem, for example, imagine the first time you felt ashamed of yourself. Think about what made you feel that way and why. This is the only way you can truly rectify it.

Stand Up For Yourself

You won't start a war to saying: "I don't appreciate you speaking about me in this way," but you will reinforce a kind of self-empowerment that most people never develop in the first place.

Take Care Of Yourself

... in the practical ways:

  • Go for wellness checks
  • Make dentist appointments
  • Prioritize sleep
  • Eat well and often
  • Wear weather-appropriate clothes and shoes that you're comfortable in
  • Connect with people who make you feel loved
  • Save some money
  • Have your own back before you expect anyone else to.
Be Honest About What You Think

At least with yourself.  

Just because you can't always speak your entire truth does not mean that you don't have to consciously acknowledge what it is.

Practice Identifying Your Feelings

When you know what your feelings are, they're not scary anymore.

Listen To Yourself

If you are in pain in any way or something makes you uncomfortable, that means something is not right. Figure out why.

That "something" could be a choice to change your life but most often, it's a shift in how you see yourself and what you focus on most.

Instead, begin by saying, “I feel hurt when…” or “I’m upset when…” Your partner will be less likely to be defensive if you don’t sound as though you’re in attack mode.

A self-centered worldview will have you chasing boogeymen where they don’t exist. 

Stop psycho-analyzing every word choice your partner makes and be more present in the moment so you can notice the message behind their tone, physical presence, and posture. Obsessing with hidden meanings is a sure-fire way to miss the point.

Knowing Yourself

Self-knowledge is the ultimate knowledge, and to know yourself is to know the meaning of life. There are millions of things we could know about ourselves, ranging from anecdotal to emotional or psychological matters. There are certain key bits of self-knowledge that we think might benefit us, like our work talents, or a partner who would be compatible with us.

Self-knowledge provides us with a route to a happy and fulfilling life. A lack of self-knowledge makes our lives accidental.
