So often when we discuss self-worth and self-esteem, we speak in vague terms about “loving ourselves” first. And sure, we know it starts with us. But what specifically can we DO? What tangible steps can we take to begin to feel worthy of love—especially if we’ve never felt this before? Anita Stoudmire of Better Love Movement joins me to share practical strategies for building into ourselves first which, in turn, positions us for attracting a healthy, happy relationship. We delve into:
What to focus on when you’re first getting to know someone.
The relationships between authenticity and codependency.
How to believe we’re okay—just the way we are.
The difference between being wanted vs. needed in relationships.
Reparenting—what it is and why many of us need it.
The importance of clarifying what doesn’t work for us and sticking to these standards.
The danger of rushing into a relationship and the real reasons behind why people do it.
Ways to stop losing yourself in relationships.
Dr. Phil says, “We teach people how to treat us.” Once we fully embrace and believe in our worth, we’ll teach everyone around us—including romantic partners—to treat us with courtesy and respect.
