2 Steps To Define Your Relationship Values
What Values Are Building Your Relationships?
When was the last time you sat down and pondered the values you live out in your relationships?
In a few minutes you can determine the four top core values that you live in your relationships. Once you understand yours, you will be better able to communicate and teach others in your life what you need to feel solid in relationship. To provide you with an example, here are my top four relationship values.
Intimacy ~ Security ~Joy ~ Kindness
- My relationships need to include affection, touch, sensuality and passion for me to be open and vulnerable.
- Security for me begins with a focus on a healthy lifestyle, when I invest my heart I would like the one I love to care enough about their health to take good care of themselves. Security also equates to financial consciousness and responsibility.
- I value laughter, joy, playfulness and want to share my time with people who are a pleasure to be with.
- It’s also important for me to surround myself with people who have a generous heart, are kind, thoughtful and mindful. Sensitive to themselves and others.
Learn The Relationship Values Of The Other
Now that you know your relationship values, you can teach those you love what you value most in relationship. You can also learn the others relationship values so you can love them in the way they feel most loved. Loving others from our own values doesn’t teach how to love us and it totally misses the mark for them to feel loved as well.
This is not a compatibility review, it’s about understanding what you value and what the other finds of value. Sharing your clarity brings you closer to a life filled with loving relationships.
