Ep. 157 Relationships - Heidi Benjaminsen Coaching

Ep. 157 Relationships

Our relationships with other people are actually much simpler to define than we are led to believe.  Because we cannot control the thoughts and feelings of another person, our relationship with them is based on these three aspects:

  1. What we think about the other person
  2. The stories we tell and imagine about what this person thinks about us
  3. What we think about ourselves

All of these relationship building blocks are in OUR lane and influence every part of our feelings and interactions with others.

We act, speak, text different when we think others like us, or do NOT like us.  We act, speak, text different when WE like ourselves, or do NOT like ourselves.

Listen as Heidi gives several examples of how separating each of these in relationships gives us confidence and strength to improve every relationship.  Learn how to release needing to know what others think about us.

Focusing on what we can control strengthens our relationships and anchors us in confidence.  Focusing on what we cannot control always leaves us insecure and repelling others.
