Many times when you’re involved in a long-term relationship, particularly one that’s unhealthy, it’s easy to lose touch with who you are and the things that you’re good at and enjoy. Unfortunately, I know this all too well from personal experience. You can become so overly focused on your significant other that you end up neglecting your own needs. The relationship takes care of your basic need to feel valued, secure and protected.
Then, if that relationship suddenly ends, it can feel like you no longer have value or that you are completely alone.
The truth is that you already have value. To help you instill this belief and build confidence, try these steps. Remember, if you want to attract a healthy relationship in the future, you need to first learn to value yourself!
