Recently I heard a psychologist mention that; if you’re having discipline issues with your children, then most likely you’re also having relationship issues as well. It stood out to me because I believe that the statement holds true not only to discipline between a parent and a child but discipline in general.
Loving yourself, believing in yourself, and trusting yourself all require some level of development that requires us to develop a better relationship with ourselves. The reason we lack discipline in various areas of our lives can quite very well be possibly rooted in some lack of connection with ourselves on a deeper level. Hence prohibiting us from developing a stronger, healthier personal relationship. The key is to have a “healthy” relationship!
“Loving yourself, requires some level of development that requires us to develop a better relationship with ourselves.”
You can say you love yourself, or that you have a relationship with yourself already, but is it healthy enough to contribute to the discipline you seek? A toxic relationship will cause us to miss the obvious right in front of us and if we are more concerned with the problem than we are with the relationship, then you’ll never even notice the problem that’s plaguing your productivity
