What is the most important relationship in our lives?

Our significant other, our parents or our children may spring to mind. These relationships are significant, but there is one other relationship that is with us all of our lives.

Our relationship with ourselves has a huge impact on our lives. To have a healthy relationship with another, it is first important to love and nurture yourself.

Do you ever have the urge to spend some delicious time by yourself doing whatever it is that makes you happy? It may be reading magazines, watching a movie or going on an adventure by yourself. It's important to know yourself and what is important to you before you can reveal yourself to the world as someone who knows what they want and believe in.

In her book Prosperity Pie, the writer asks "What if when someone asks you if you are dating anyone, you respond 'Well I am really involved in loving myself right now' " How liberating!

The little voice in our head tries to tell us we are being selfish when we put ourselves first, but it is a brave and smart person who knows and understands the importance of loving and honouring yourself. Everyone around you will benefit from it too.

"You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be fund anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection."
