There’s nothing wrong with choosing yourself in a relationship. In fact that’s exactly what you should do! Author and life coach Christine Arylo feels having a positive relationship with yourself is so important that she has written the new book Choosing Me Before We to put women on the right path. Arylo breaks it down for us on how to choose ME before WE with 3 principles:
Live from the Inside Out
Know what you want from life, regardless of what anyone else wants or says.
Your life has to be about your dreams, passions and gifts first.
Only choose partners who help you achieve your goals and who inspire you to be your best you.
You’ve got to know who you are and live from that centered place all the time.
Without self-awareness, you’ll mold to fit your partner or your relationship, and no matter what you may tell yourself, you won’t be happy.
This is your life. Live it the way you want and find a partner who’s up for the ride.
Know What and Who You Want in A Partner and Why
Why do I want a relationship, as in how does it make my life better?
