We all long for relationships that fill our hearts with happiness and warmth. We all long to be surrounded by people who genuinely love and care about us. People we can always rely on. People who are honest, loyal, compassionate, and caring. People who are genuinely good.
Well, if you want to attract good people into your life, you have to:
1. Always be yourself.
If you want someone to accept you and love you for who you are, you first have to know who you are and feel comfortable in your own skin. You have to know what your weaknesses and imperfections are and embrace them.
You have to live your life in accordance with your own principles, beliefs, and values. You have to accept and love yourself just the way you are – flawed, imperfect.
2. Be good to yourself.
Treat yourself as well as you would treat a friend. Treat yourself with patience, kindness, and compassion. Treat yourself with respect and dignity.
Eat healthy food. Get enough sleep. Exercise. Walk in nature. And do things that make you feel happy and fulfilled.
3. Always be honest.
In a world like ours – a world full of hypocrites, manipulators, and liars, it takes real bravery and confidence to be honest. There are many out there who can’t handle and who hate honesty.
Don’t be one of them. Instead, always tell it like it is. Always tell others the truth regardless of how harsh and painful it may be. And most importantly, always be honest with yourself.
4. Love your own company.
You need to respect and love yourself enough that you prefer being alone than being surrounded by immature, selfish, irresponsible people. Because if you love and respect yourself, you’ll find that being with yourself is more fulfilling and enjoyable than being around people who take you for granted, don’t treat you well, or don’t care about you.
5. Leave your emotional baggage behind.
We have all gone through rough stuff in the past. We’ve all experienced the pain of heartbreak. We’ve all experienced failure.
But, if you want to achieve happiness and be successful in life, you need to let go of your mental and emotional baggage. You need to let go of your past mistakes, disappointments, heartbreaks, failed relationships, failures, and lost opportunities.
What you need to remember is that carrying your emotional baggage around only prevents you from moving forward and living a truly happy and fulfilling life.
6. Always be willing to help others.
I truly believe that everything you do comes back to you. So, choose to help people. Choose to comfort everyone who is hurting. Choose to do good, kind deeds.
But, don’t do this because you expect people to be grateful to you and praise you for helping. Do this because you know it’s the right thing to do. Do it because it fills your heart with joy and warmth. And don’t doubt that the right people will recognize your pure, deep soul and kind heart.
7. See people for who they truly are.
Don’t see people through rose-tinted glasses. Don’t see the “outer” person. Instead, try to see who they really are on the inside. Try to see their true colors. Their true self.
Don’t look at their words. Instead, look at their actions. If they don’t treat you kindly, then this means that there’s more to them than meets the eye. It means they don’t deserve to be a part of your life.
