Life expert Rhea Williams returned to “The Jennifer Hudson Show” to impart more of her wisdom about starting and maintaining healthy relationships.
Rhea shared her top five tips for cultivating a successful relationship, whether that relationship is with a romantic partner, a family member, a colleague, or a friend.
Check out Rhea’s tips below, and see what you might need to work on if you feel your relationships could be stronger.
1. Own Your Stuff and Do Your Work
“All relationships really begin with you,” she told Jennifer Hudson on the May 23 episode of the show. “When you enter into a relationship, you’re responsible for what you bring into it. It’s not your partner’s job to take on and own and fix — it is your responsibility.
“Personal growth is essential to relational growth,” she added. “Any relationship that you want to grow, you yourself must grow.”
She continued, “Be what you desire to receive. So if you desire gratitude, be grateful. If you desire kindness, be kind. If you desire for someone to accept and embrace who you are, do that. It’s very simple.”
