Relationships are your mirror
To change the world you live in, change the world that lives inside of you.
"Change your conception of yourself and you will automatically change the world in which you live. Do not try to change people; they are only messengers telling you who you are. Revalue yourself and they will confirm the change."
― Neville Goddard
I’ve been on this journey of self-discovery for almost a decade now so I’ve gotten to see many different versions of myself.
There’s periods in my life where I’m taking care of myself, pursuing my creative callings, and excited to wake up everyday. During these times, the people around me make me feel the way I already feel about myself—which is loved.
In the act of loving myself and doing things I love, I attract people into my life that are doing the same.
Love begets love.
I make new friends, attract romantic partners, and come across interesting business ideas to pursue.
Life is amazing. And everything is effortless.
On the flip side, there’s times where I’m stuck in a job I hate, don’t take care of myself, and neglect my creative callings.
When I find myself lost in an existential wormhole, the people around me reflect the way I feel about myself—which is empty.
All of a sudden my friends are busy, romantic partners ghost me, and business opportunities fall by the way side.
When I work on my physical, mental, and spiritual health, I upgrade my self-concept. As a byproduct of demonstrating love to myself, I’m rewarded with opportunities of abundance in all areas of my life.
I realise that I don’t need to go looking for things outside of me because reality is a mirror—with a time delay—that’s reflecting the amount of self-love I’m carrying within.
In order to change the world we live in, we must first change the world that lives inside of us.
