Last week we looked at the bucket of worth; this week’s topic is the bucket of love, which includes the ABCs of love:
It’s worth noting our love buckets aren’t always filled by our family of origin. We can find healthy acceptance, belonging, and connection in a variety of different relationships.
If you have a lot of talents from the Influencing domain, you likely enjoy having this bucket filled within group contexts.
If you have a lot of talents from the Relationship Builder domain, you probably find your bucket is more quickly filled through one-on-one relationships.
The point is we grow in communion with others. We make each other better, together.
For context: In April 2022, I started a series exploring five different areas of our wellbeing. I like to call them “buckets,” because it helps us visualize a full bucket as contributing to our wellbeing, whereas an empty bucket suffers wellbeing.
The wellbeing framework I’m using can be found at slathy.com. It is based on what I’ve found we absolutely cannot survive without, and what we need to not just survive, but also thrive.
