Priority: Me, Myself and You
Learning the artful balance of who to love whilst discovering and respecting our own limitations in judgment is an important aspect of growth. Love is a prize to be valued above most else in life. Value your love of others and yourself by not making people a priority in your life if you are just an entertainment in theirs.
What is a priority? Romantically most of us need to value being a priority for someone. We should expect that this person puts time with us above spending time with others or at work. A priory can be as much emotional as a physical place of importance. Answer in your own way what a priority in your romantic life means to you.
What are emotional priories for you? The people we make room for in our lives should value gentleness. Provide support on bad days and faith on good days. To make it clear to you that You are a deeply rooted emotional aspect of their lives. How do you make it clear to others that you value them? Who in your life shows the same kind of respect?
What does it mean to make someone a priority?
Accepting humility in the gift of a truly gentle and good spouse, friend or family member and is the first step. Humility is the softener of the harsh edges from being too self aware. We can spend too much time on ourselves analytically and forget to have gratitude for our new priories of joy and love.
So much of what I love about writing articles on growing and gaining joy for I Citizen is the chance to help you ask yourself questions that may seem obvious but are so often overlooked.
What do you need to feel valued? To feel loved? To feel attended to?
On the flip side of gaining a sense of value, how do you make your loved ones priorities in your life day-to-day?
Regular, simple and authentic acts of mindful kindness goes a very long way toward fulfilling and sustainable relationships.
Never make someone a priority in your life when you are just an option in theirs. Show yourself and your loved ones that everyone deserves to be a priority in the lives of those we love.
