Taking Care of Myself — How to Empower my Relationships Video Presentation

Posted by Second Chance to Live on September 29, 2014

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table.  Yesterday, I wrote the article Taking Care of Myself — How to Empower my Relationships. Today, I would like to offer the article in video format for individuals who learn more effectively through watching and listening. To introduce the video presentation I will include an excerpt from the article below:

“Over the past day and a half I spent some extended time with a friend who I had not seen and visited with in several years. It was good seeing him and catching up, however I began to realize that as the time went on, I became fatigued.  In my fatigue, I found that I had been short with him several times. As I realized that I had been short with him, I asked him to forgive me for being short with him. He forgave me and our conversation continued. Although overall we had a good time visiting, I realized that in my fatigue, I needed to end our time visiting. Yesterday morning my friend called and left a voice message.

On the voice message he said that he wanted to get together for lunch, before heading out of town. Upon hearing his voice mail message, I realized that I had been taxed to my limit through the time I had already spent with him. I decided to not call him back, however during my quiet time, he called and I answered the phone. Knowing that he wanted to get together for lunch, I told him that I had become fatigued and needed some down time. He validated my need to take care of myself and I thanked him for understanding. Once I got off the phone and as I recharged my batteries, I realized that by taking care of myself, I created a win / win outcome and in the process, empowered the relationship.”
