How can you be responsible for your own happiness in a relationship? I like this quote because it gives us permission to free our amazing capacity to grow and become the person we were meant to be.
Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who your are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different. Stacey Charter
As I pointed out in the last Stonyhill Nugget…..being responsible for our own happiness and self-worth sometimes means we have to be willing to let go of the rope…….but only when you can do it without regret. In other words, only when you know in your heart that you have done everything you can to help the other person. The wisdom and insight of knowing when it’s time to let go of the rope comes only from the willingness to intentionally become self-aware.
