Why Your Next Lover Wants You to Get Some Sleep

Get Some SleepLast night I stayed up later than I should have and am paying the price today …

feeling groggy, dragging, less than usually enthused.

(But I really wanted to finish that movie! That I fell asleep three times during …)

I told someone with a habit of staying up too late that this is the kind of activity that keeps his next love interest at bay.

Because we don’t attract people who are good to us when we treat ourselves like jerks.

Someone who is ready to love and adore you will be blocked or invisible until you’re a match to that energy, which means loving yourself.  YOU set the tone for how everyone treats you.

So if you’ve been really good at attracting jerks in your life, this might be a good time to check in on your self love practices.

If you find that you:

  • aren’t giving yourself the rest that lets you be your best or
  • eat less than fabulous foods or
  • work too hard or
  • don’t play enough or
  • put up with things you generally don’t like,

don’t be surprised when the people in your life aren’t so good to you either.

Like attracts like, and the world reflects how you feel about and treat yourself.

The good news: the change starts within.

So if you’d like love interests or family members or co-workers who treat you like gold, your mission is to treat yourself better.  In thought and action.

Because it matters more than you may realize.  (And it’s also great insulation from jerks.)

Coming up short on self love isn’t the only way we attract people who are less than fabulous to us, but it can be a contributor.  Which makes for good incentive to pay attention to how you treat yourself.

All right, nap time for me.   🙂

    Wow! Total wake-up call for me, Jeannette! I’m wondering why I never put this together in my head before. Self-care, self-care, self-care. Shouldn’t be so hard, right?! 😉

  • Sometimes that’s not an easy concept to embrace (that others are a reflection of our own vibration), but it sure offers good incentive to learn how to be good to ourselves, isn’t it?

    OMG! So true Jeannette. The way people treat you in your life is a direct reflection of how you treat yourself. Yowser!
