How To Be Your Own Best Friend
Take Yourself On A Trip
A lot of people think that they can’t go on vacation alone – but the opposite is actually true. Going travelling by yourself is one of the most liberating things you can ever do. You can be truly selfish while you’re there, and do exactly what you want every day. If you love art then you can spend all day in a single gallery instead of having a partner or friend huffing with boredom beside you. You can dip into all the little cafes you like to find where has the best coffee and you can sit in the sun and read all day. If you want, you can always find someone to make friends with in your hotel or locality – but remember that being alone doesn’t mean that you’re lonely.
Get To Know Yourself
If you’ve been in relationships for a long time then it’s a good idea to figure out who you are when you’re by yourself. Try out different things to find something that fits. Maybe you’re more of a bookworm than you ever thought, or you’ll discover during a French class that you’d like to move to Paris one day for a few months. There are so many things out there in the world that you’ve never experienced. You could even try out getting a psychic reading – look online to find a psychic phone number. Even if you don’t totally believe in it, it’ll make you question yourself and what you believe and what you want.
Get Yourself Fit And Healthy
There’s nothing better than feeling as though you’re strong and that your body is in great condition. Sign up for the gym and pay for a few sessions of personal training so you figure out how to use the equipment without injuring yourself and so you find out what sort of workout routine is best for you. If the gym doesn’t appeal, then try going for some long hikes and discovering more about your local area – you could even take a friend along with you! You could also try out a yoga or Pilates class if you want to work on your core strength. Let’s face it – yoga’s just as good for your spiritual health as your physical.
Be Kind To Yourself
The strange thing about most human beings is that we just don’t treat ourselves as well as we do other people. Make yourself and what you want a priority in your own life, and take note when you do something that you’re proud of and happy with. Remember that your best is good enough and that no one will ever be perfect (and that the people who appear to be are pretty much just faking it). If you feel emotionally exhausted then it’s okay to say no to people – being assertive is one of the healthiest skills you can acquire and one of the best ways to make yourself happier. Make sure that you say ‘I love you’ to yourself every once in a while to – at the end of the day, you’re all that you have.
