Promises to Yourself

The most impor­tant promis­es you’ll ever make in this life are the ones you make to your­self. I’ve lost sight of that fact, and bro­ken at least one of my promis­es to myself. I need to remind myself of a few of my promis­es to myself (these aren’t all of them, by any means). 

  • I won’t allow any­one to act abu­sive­ly towards me. The rule of thumb is that I should­n’t accept treat­ment that I would­n’t want for my child.
  • No part­ner is worth my self-esteem, so I won’t stay with a any­one who tears me down.
  • Any part­ner who tries to come between me and my child is history.
  • I deserve a part­ner who is faith­ful to me and our agree­ments in every sense of the word, and I won’t low­er myself by stay­ing with some­one who breaks them. New adden­dum: For­give­ness for infi­deli­ty is (at most!) a one-time thing.
  • My life task right now is to get health­i­er in every realm of my life, and I can’t afford to asso­ciate with any­one detri­men­tal to my over­all health.

What promis­es have you made to your­self? How well do you keep them?
