“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.”
– Albert Einstein
No matter what your circumstances, I want to challenge you to choose the mindset of empowerment.
You have the power to change how you think, how you feel, and what you do.
Here are 3 self care tips for feeling better when you live with a narcissistic partner:
1) Consider that why you feel so all over the place, is that you have an emotional addiction to your partner, and this addiction is taking over your whole life, mind, and body. You are not IN your body, and you depend on him to make you feel better.
2) With this new awareness, commit to putting that energy and focus elsewhere toward bettering yourself, your life, and setting some things in motion to improve your life, and how you feel.
3) Stop focusing on him and the relationship. Make this time about you. What are things you love to do that make you feel happy? What makes you feel peaceful and grateful to be alive? Spend time immersed in self growth, audios, books and journaling, but also make sure to let loose a little and just to have fun and be creative!
This morning I woke at 5 am before everyone in the house, got up, made my coffee, curled up back in bed to read Wayne Dyer, and sit in peace as I savored my coffee concoction of the morning. I had to make sure to keep the Vitamix blender on low as to not wake my girls up 😆, but my point is it was so peaceful.
My new office furniture is being delivered today, so I’m looking forward to setting my space up, and going for a walk in the gorgeous sunshine today!
These are examples of how we can take charge of our own happiness, self-nurturing, and be our own source of comfort, self-soothing, joy, pleasure, and fulfillment.
Codependency is looking to someone outside to others help us feel better. It’s outsourcing how we feel to others and is an emotional dependency on others. It’s putting others before ourselves to our detriment.
So, what will you do to implement these 3 tips into your life?
How are you taking ownership of YOU?
Have a great week!
