Self-Responsibility and Love Defined

Self-Responsibility Means:
  • Developing awareness of your own processes and patterns - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual
  • Discovering your real needs, and finding ways to meet them directly
  • Realizing that you are unique and the expert about yourself
  • Making choices and living courageously in the midst of uncertainty
  • Creating the life you want, rather than just reacting to whatever comes along
  • Asking simply and directly for what you need and want from others
  • Expressing yourself - both your ideas and feelings - in ways that effectively communicate to other people who you are and what you know
  • Respecting your body through nutrition, exercise, and personal safety
  • Creating and nourishing close relationships with others
  • Engaging in projects that are meaningful to you; being supportive of others; and respecting your environment
Love Means:
  • Honoring your uniqueness, and enjoying the uniqueness of others
  • Listening to your own heart - treasuring your inner wisdom
  • Responding to life's challenges as opportunities for growth, rather than as problems
  • Caring for all aspects of yourself - body, mind, emotions, spirit - and sharing your caring with others
  • Exercising compassion for your weaknesses, and forgiving yourself and others
  • Experiencing yourself as your own best friend, and remaining faithful to yourself, especially in the rough times
  • Realizing your connectedness with all things and acting in a way congruent with that awareness
  • Being truthful with yourself and others
  • Celebrating the irrepressible process of life

With love and self-responsibility as our foundations and supports, living and wellness are synonymous.
