Relationship Amnesia

Wow! It’s been awhile since I posted on my blog. And I made a commitment and promise to myself and those who read my blogs to be consistent. I am restoring my integrity and promise I will blog at least twice a week. This is what I call relationship amnesia. Meaning, I chose not to remember my word to myself first and foremost. Then the trickle down effect is that I am not my word to you. So what is my relationship with myself? What is my relationship with you? What is your relationship with yourself. What is your relationship with others? We all are challenged with relationship amnesia. It is insidious. We make promises, we say we are committed, we create goals, and we make plans. Then when we break our word we justify it somehow to ourselves and others. It might sound like this, sorry, maybe someday. Or when so and so happens. Or when I’m ready for it. Oh, here’s a good one, one of my favorites. When I’m in a better place. What the f___ does that mean? We are the creators of our space! Taking responsibility for relationship amnesia starts with cleaning up our integrity with ourselves first. Then sharing that with others. Depression is anger at the self. When we break our promises with self and slowly experience our dreams fade away, we start to get numb and lose our passion and vitality. Then we project our broken hearts onto others. That’s right, we break our own hearts. No one can break my heart but me. My request is that we forgive ourselves, restore our integrity with ourselves and the people in our lives, and start again with a blank slate. We can all heal and open our hearts again to ourselves and restore our dreams, passion, and vitality. It’s called self Love. So simple, yet so deep. Relationship amnesia disappears when integrity reappears. I promise! Now what was that I promised?? LOL!!!
