Hacks for Feeling Better About Dating
Transparency, trust, vulnerability, uncomfortable and scary are just some of the things that make love (and life) grand!
Your attitude is a choice and so is your level of satisfaction. If you want a better attitude and a higher level of satisfaction choose it!
Talk to yourself! Stop the negative self talk like “I’m not good enough,” I’m too old/ overweight/ busy/ etc.”Instead make it a habit to look for the good instead of the bad in yourself, in others and in every situation!
Ask yourself, what is the worst thing that can happen? By imagining unlikely and negative outcomes, you realize you are going to be okay and can handle much more than you realize. You can even crack yourself up by imagining ridiculously funny and unlikely outcomes.
Recognize and celebrate your small wins!
When dealing with unpleasant tasks, look for the things that are beneficial and focus on that.
Keep talking to yourself… my favorite questions to ask myself are “why not?”; “what’s another way of thinking about that?”; “is this worth it?”; and my favorite which is the question that helped me find the love I have today is, “if you don’t do this, will you regret it?”
Tell people what you want. People want to give you what you want, but they are not mind readers.
You don’t know anyone else’s story.
- The other person isn’t perfect, and neither are you.
- Transparency, trust, vulnerability, uncomfortable and scary are just some of the things that make love (and life) grand!
- If you slip into old patterns, catch yourself without judgement, and make better choices.
