How’s your relationship with… yourself?

A common religious pathology is a twisted understanding of “self-denial.” A popular Christian mantra is – “Christianity is not a religion but a relationship.” Though this is meant to say that Christianity is a relationship with God, I wish someone would call for a renewed and transformed relationship with one’s self. People are suffering every day, not because of a deficient relationship with God but because of a dysfunctional relationship with themselves.

Let me ask you, how’s your relationship with… yourself?
Do you practice self-care?
Do you acknowledge and honor your needs and desires?
Are you living a life of authentic and free self-expression?

Consider that your relationship with yourself includes:

your relationship to your thoughts,
your relationship to your feelings,
your relationship to your body,
your relationship to your desires,
your relationship to your needs,
your relationship to your gifts,
your relationship to your past,
your relationship to your boundaries,
your relationship to your choices,
your relationship to your emotional pain,
your relationship to your fears,
your relationship to your dreams,
your relationship to your soul,
your relationship to your spirit,
your relationship to your suffering.
