To be reliable means you can be trusted. A reliable person has follow through and typically does a good job at whatever task they set out to do. Stop for a second and ask yourself, “Am I reliable? Can friends and family rely on me to follow through?”
I feel as though I am reliable. If you need me and it’s within my means, I’ll be there for you, no doubt.
Now ask yourself, “Can I rely on myself? When I say I am going to do something for me, can I trust myself to do it?”
Now that’s a tricky one. Why is that? Why is it that we will go out of our way for the ones we love but not give ourselves the same courtesy? Are we not worth it? Do we not believe in ourselves enough? Are we just lazy and the only reason we’re reliable to others is because we want to be perceived a certain way?
REAL. RAW. QUESTIONS.
I personally think it’s because it’s easier to let ourselves down than it is to let someone else down. We love outwardly, not inwardly. But in order to truly be reliable, we have to be able to do for ourselves as much as we do for others.
It’s like the flight attendant says, put your oxygen mask on before assisting others. What good are you if you pass out before helping the people next to you?
The point I’m trying to make is you are important. What you need is important. Don’t put yourself on the back burner. Follow though with the things you say you’re going to do and if you don’t, ask yourself why. Sometimes the problem is what we are asking from ourselves.
Be your biggest supporter. Know above all else — if no one was there to help you — you could rely on yourself. Once we start to strengthen our own reliability, we may find that other areas of our life are better. That do-good feeling is something we can give ourselves rather than receiving it through the heart felt “thank yous” from others.
Make a list of 3 things you want to accomplish this week. Keep it realistic and complete those tasks. Meal prep. Say something nice about yourself every day. Drink 8 glasses of water. Make your bed every morning. Call your mom. It doesn’t matter, write it down. Follow through and be reliable to your word!
