My family and friends fill my life with joy and meaning. I nurture my relationships with them.
My relationships make me feel needed and cared for. I connect with something larger than myself. I experience being known and understood. I create a sense of belonging and community.
My relationships help me to manage stress and overcome challenges. I have others that I can count on and turn to in times of need.
My relationships enable me to enjoy life more. We share laughter, lively conversations, and fun activities. We bring out each other’s strengths. We encourage healthy behaviours and greater accomplishments.
I communicate openly and honestly. I express my thoughts and feelings. I speak tactfully and directly. I listen attentively and provide empathy and validation.
I give generously. I block out time to spend with my loved ones even on my busiest days. I share my talents and resources. I reach out to others when they are struggling.
I receive graciously. I create balanced relationships based on give and take. I set boundaries and ask for what I need.
I earn trust and respect. I honour my commitments. I strive to be a wonderful partner, parent, and friend.
Today, I express my appreciation for my partner, family, friends, neighbours, and coworkers. I draw strength from those around me. My relationships enhance my mental and physical wellbeing.
