Romance fills our thoughts, our dreams, the movies we watch and the songs we listen to. And why not? Wanting to love and be loved is fundamental to our nature. We all yearn to be understood and cherished.
And when we don't have that special someone in our lives, the ache can feel almost unbearable. Even when we do have that partner, that lover, that spouse, we still sometimes feel that hollow echo. Why? Too often we neglect the most important relationship of all: romancing the self.
Our culture's emphasis on constant activity, the aggressive presence of sight, sound and movement, makes it difficult to sit and read a good book without also turning on the radio. Staring out the window at the rain, listening to it drumming on the roof -- it's nice, but are you squirming in your chair? It's not from boredom or too much energy. You're not really spending time with the rain or the book anyway. You're spending time with yourself, and that's a scary thing in our culture.
But to have fulfilling relationships with other people, we first need to feel the joy of our own presence. Unresolved issues, feelings and energies in ourselves have a way of popping up in our relationships with other people. We attract partners that embody unresolved parts of ourselves, or we project those characteristics onto them. Either way, what we leave undone internally gets played out in our external relationships.
So romance yourself! Get to know, and appreciate, all of who your are!
Do these things. Get to know yourself, your likes, your joys. Discover what reminds you of your inner radiance. You'll find treasures. Trust me. Every treasure you find within yourself is a gift you bring to every relationship.
Romance yourself and let life romance you in return.
