New Beginnings, New Relationships

As the Holidays are approaching and we get closer to the end of the year, it is natural to think about the new year. And as most say, a new year means a time of new beginnings.

A New Year's resolution is a significant marker to set goals and look forward to the upcoming year. For some, it may mean losing weight or finding a new job. For most singles, however, a new beginning can signify renewed hope in the never ending search for love and relationships.

When a person is looking for a compatible partner, it is essential that they self reflect before embarking on their journey. Self reflection helps you to evaluate what has been successful and unsuccessful in past relationships and/or dating experiences. Such analysis can help a person to notice patterns or pitfalls which can be beneficial in forging ahead toward future goals for selecting a potential partner. The purpose of self reflection is not to blame yourself or beat yourself for past decisions. Instead, a closer look at ourselves allows us the opportunity to try and learn from our behaviors, experiences and relationships which often results in helping us be the person we want to be in a relationship.

Self reflection takes strength and courage to confront parts of ourselves or our experiences that produce shame or insecurities. It is important that we take responsibility for our behaviors while also being compassionate and supportive for the decisions and choices we have made along the way, especially when it comes to finding a partner.

So this holiday season, as you prepare to enter into the new year, take some time to reflect upon your past and what you envision for yourself in 2018. If you desire a relationship, be aware of what qualities are important to you in a potential partner and the type of relationship you want based on past experiences. Hopefully, we are all on a never ending quest to learn more about ourselves regardless of our circumstances. Happy New Year!
