A high self-esteem based on self-confidence and respect toward others enables us to be masters of our relationships.
What does this mean to be the master of our relationships?
These are the two characteristics of it.
It means on one hand that we are in control of our relationships. This means we are self-confident enough to decide how close a relationship should be.
On the other hand it means that we consciously create the kind of relationships we want. We are capable of weighing the importance of our relationships.
“I’m the master of my relationship” doesn’t mean dominating over others. A high self-esteem leads us toward the respectful relationships we wish to maintain.
