The Relationship with Yourself: I'm Finally Doing Right By Me

March 30, 2018 Jonathan Berg

Your relationship with yourself is the most important one to nurture. Watch this video at HealthyPlace to learn how your relationship with yourself can either nourish you or shut you down.

A healthy relationship with yourself affects your happiness. Only a few short years ago, I was by most definitions incredibly successful. I was making a good living and had achieved my goal of running my own non-profit organization. But I wasn't happy. Since then, I learned that only the relationship with yourself truly matters.

My New Relationship with Myself

I learned my happiness has to come first (Want to be Happy? 9 Things to Stop Doing Right Now). I left my job and the nonprofit world behind and have spent the past seven months traveling the world as a blogger. I am poorer and arguably less professionally successful, but I have never been happier.

I would make that trade again every day.
