This is a post in progress, inspired about a story I was reading regarding how important it is to surround yourself with others who uplift you and challenge you to be the best person you can be. (Similar concept to how the 5 people you spend the most time with are fundamentally who you become like)
Some ideas below to consider as a discussion topic when your children are old enough to reflect on this.
- Who are the people you feel good around?
- Who are you able to relax and be yourself with?
- What do those people have in common?
- Who makes you laugh the most?
Ultimately what we are all looking to or need to find; people who allow us to be relaxed, confident and open enough to express the version of ourselves that we like best.
