I surround myself with family and friends I love and trust.
I set realistic expectations. I take responsibility for my own happiness. I avoid placing too many demands on any one individual. I accept that changes and conflicts are natural. I am quick to apologize and forgive.
I maintain healthy boundaries. I let others know how I wish to be treated and the consequences for exceeding my limits. I remember that I deserve respect and consideration.
I communicate openly and honestly. I tell others what is on my mind instead of assuming that they already know.
I make spending time with my loved ones a top priority.
I eat family meals. Sitting down together gives us a chance to eat nutritious foods and catch up on how we spend our days.
I plan fun activities for weekends. We use the extra hours to relax and bond. We travel to other cities. We visit museums and parks. We take cooking classes or rent kayaks.
I enjoy meaningful conversations. I allow myself to be vulnerable. I talk about my hopes and fears. I receive comfort and encouragement that helps me to heal and persevere.
I rely on my loved ones for feedback and support. We help each other to grow and achieve our goals. We collaborate on losing weight or finding a new job.
Today, I feel nurtured and secure. My family and friends make my life richer and more satisfying. I am grateful for their presence.
