Welcome to Love, Sex, and Everything in Between! My name is Martha. I am a sexologist and I am playing Goddess Goody Two Shoes. So tune in to find out what I have to say.
You are your own best friend. When was the last time you took to develop your relationship with yourself?
We spend time with our friends and our family, and then there’s time we spend with our loved ones, but we often forget to put in time to take care of our relationship with us. One of the ways in which we can be by ourselves in a deep way is journaling. In that, it also allows us to begin to become more creative and really allow that inner child to come forth.
You can really use this time in a meaning way where true rest, rejuvenation and recovery can take place. Even extroverts need time by themselves, and extroverts, if they don’t watch their energy, can actually burn out. One of the things that I would like to recommend is this book called, The Artist’s Way. In The Artist’s Way, there are lots of exercises and questions in which you can begin to ask yourself questions, to go deep so that you enjoy this time by yourself so much.
This week’s challenge is to spend some time to be by yourself so that you can remain your own best friend.
