Hey guys! Welcome back. As we go through uncertain times and changes, I think it’s really important to reconnect with ourselves and really get back to who we are at our very core. So there are a few ways that you can take some time to reconnect with yourself and remind yourself of the various things that are true to you and about you. Sometimes it takes a big life change, unpredictable circumstances, or simply losing touch of ourselves that causes us to have to face our reality and who we are. So here are some tips on how you can reconnect with yourself.
Be honest with yourself.
One of the very first things you need to do when you are trying to get back in touch with yourself is to be completely honest. Talk to yourself about the things you want, the things you need, mistakes you have made, regrets you have, and what you want to change moving forward. Telling yourself these things and working through the past can help you come to terms with what you want next in your life. It helps you feel like you have more control over your circumstances.
Accept yourself completely.
We all have flaws and things we wish we could change. However, it’s really important that through all of your stages in life that you accept yourself fully. To connect with yourself and see your true value, you must be able to accept that you are not perfect and you will never will be. See each mistake and regret as a learning experience and figure out how you can move forward. Acceptance is key to being at people with yourself and feeling like a whole person.
Focus on the positive.
Your mind will start to believe whatever you tell it everyday. So if you are saying negative things about yourself and constantly putting yourself down, you will struggle to build that connection and feel complete. Therefore, it is really important to make sure you are doing your best to focus on the positive as much as you can. Remind yourself of your good qualities and the your successes and accomplishments. Be proud of who you are and work on being the best version of yourself that you can be.
Give yourself grace.
As I said before, no one is perfect. Your life will not be without mistakes. However, when those things come up, when you mess up, remember to give yourself grace. Cut yourself some slack and remember that no one expects you to be great at everything. Just keep doing the best you can do and work on progress instead of perfection. This will help you learn to trust your instincts more and better build that connection that you want with yourself. So don’t be so hard on yourself all the time.
Have a grateful heart.
One of the absolute best ways to reconnect with yourself and be happy with who you are is to be grateful for all the amazing people and things that you have in your life. Lead your life with a grateful heart. Remind yourself that even though things may not always be perfect, you still have so much to be grateful for. Life may be messy sometimes, but there is always something worth going through the mess for. You just have to keep pushing through.
