Cognitive Analytic Therapy
The relationship you have with yourself is often the most complicated because you can’t walk away from you, you have to forgive every mistake, and deal with every flaw. You have to find a way to both accept and love yourself.
When we think about ourselves in relationships, we often focus on our external relationships with other people and don’t always pay as much attention to our internal relationship with our self. We might feel that we don’t really know ourselves very well, or the opposite that we know ourselves too well, in the respect that we find ‘ourselves’ difficult to be around. We might constantly seek approval or validation from others, needing it to feel that we are ok, and then lack confidence in our own self belief, sense of purpose or achievements.
