For many of us around the world, 2020 was not going to plan. Perhaps we had hoped to continue our dating journey at this point, but the corona virus has derailed our dreams. The good news is that we still have almost half of 2020. So why not use this point to create a positive vision for the second half of the year and clarify your next steps towards a fulfilling relationship?
When creating a vision for the next phase of our lives, it is useful to look back at what we have learned in the past few months – to find out what we want to keep from the first half of the year and what we prefer to leave behind.
When much of the world adapts to a new normal and the pace of everything increases, you can choose to hold onto part of the peace or space that you may have experienced. So how can you bring more silence and slowness to the next phase of your life? Would you like to commit to a daily rest period again? And how would you like to spend this time? How do you want to protect this time from all the other things that will inevitably compete for it?
Perhaps the difficult season that has just passed has also helped you to crystallize your priorities and remind you what is really important in life. If so, you may want to create a journal to reflect on these priorities. What has taught you so far about the people and things you care about in 2020? Once you know your priorities, it will be easier to allocate your precious energy.
And maybe the experience of the past few months has helped give you a clearer picture of the type of person you want to be with – the values that your future partner should have. So why not create a comprehensive vision of your future partner if you haven’t already? I always recommend a broad vision rather than a specific list as it is important to keep our options open and not to judge people too early.
I’m looking forward to
Now look ahead in the coming months. How can you create a 2020 that is unforgettable for reasons other than the corona virus? What do you want to bring in the second half of the year?
If your primary goal is to be in a healthy relationship by the end of the year, what steps must you take to achieve this?
Here are some suggestions based on my own experience:
– Use part of your quiet time to think about your foundations. What is your connection to yourself, your feelings and to God? What is your self esteem How is your trust Do you feel good when you’re online? Do you feel valuable and lovable?
– Do you know your patterns in relationships and take steps to break them? Do you know the fears that determine your patterns? If you understand the roots of your fears, you have a better chance of changing your patterns, even the really stubborn ones.
– Have you let go of all your previous relationships and dreams that didn’t come true to free up the decks for something exciting and new? Have you let go of the negative beliefs that pulled you down earlier?
– Do you live your life authentically? Is your work focused on your authentic self or do you pursue hobbies that remain true to you? If you live and work authentically, you are more likely to meet in the right pool and meet people with whom you have a lot in common.
– Do you feel open-minded and do you have a positive attitude when it comes to dating?
– Do you take the time and space in your schedule for dating and love as well as for self-sufficiency?
If you can answer yes to these questions, I think you are well equipped to have a fun and successful dating experience and achieve your goal of a happy, healthy relationship.
If the answer is no, you may just need to spend a little more time building your healthy basics so you are in a good place to get the most out of dating. You may need to spend a little more time healing your relationship with yourself so that you can have a loving relationship with another.
Dating can be tiring and time-consuming, and we now have the additional complications of the coronavirus, but when we meet with a healthy sense of self-worth and a strong connection to ourselves and God, it can be pleasant and incredibly fruitful.
