It’s a challenge to establish healthy relationships when we’re overlooking the health of our own well-being. The soul needs a Higher rule of Authority for living and being. Such takes place through an agreeable alliance with God, the One Who guards and directs our path with guidelines that teach us to establish boundaries for living. This is no indication of a life without challenge, disappointment or mistakes – rather, one that helps us to maintain an inner stability against the inevitable tides of living. Know what you believe and why you believe as you believe, as we function from the foundation of our beliefs, whether healthy or unhealthy.
We are wise to give ourselves an emotional break. Time alone is essential, as it allows for some soul searching, self-awareness, growth, and the many other factors that come to assist us in becoming more personally developed. Time alone helps us to understand ourselves and to put our priorities into order-thus, maintaining that order. The very principals, guidelines and insights that produce personal health and well-being, are the same ones that produce relational health and well-being.
As we set aside time to examine the emotions that lead us astray (impulsive and unhealthy practices), we get to the core of our issues–ourselves. Our emotions can be deceiving and often convincing – however, they’re not to be over-looked. They are there to teach us, to assist us into the realization that we have choices. ~Stormie Steele (Life Through The Storm ~Healthy Relationships)
