What makes me lose my connection to myself and what makes me get that connection back?

(Answer In The Comments Below )
From "100 Of The Most Powerful Questions You Can Ask Yourself"

Nothing has the power to completely alter perspective and therefore your thoughts and actions and life quite like a question. Inquiry leads to understanding. The quality of the answers we arrive at, correspond directly to the quality of question we ask. The better the question, the better the answer. One of the most important things to realize about a question is that a person learns far, far more from the process and work involved in answering a question than from the answer itself. This is why spiritual teachers throughout history (including myself) have tended to pose so many questions to their students rather than to simply offer a direct answer. For this reason, I have selected a collection of 100 of the most powerful questions that you can ask yourself.

Make sure to take time to carefully consider each question that is posed in order to meaningfully answer them. And don’t forget to come back to these questions again and again throughout your life, especially whenever you are feeling stuck, because the answers will most likely change over the course of your life and also cause you to change your course in life.

What makes me lose my connection to myself?

Believing other people's opinions despite my own doubts. So, doubting myself, gaslighting myself, thinking "maybe they're right" when I know they're wrong. Not being healthy. Hanging out with people I'm not compatible with. Eating crappy food. Not exercising or getting sunlight. Watching TV or the News and believing what they say, or not being critical of what I'm viewing. Not paying attention to my emotions, body, feelings. Drugs, alcohol, doing work I hate. Not taking care of my appearance or body. Not having my nails done. Letting people mistreat me. Not having really, really good boundaries. Not following my heart every day. Not having any fun - all work and no play. Conversely, all play and no work. Equating work with doing things I don't want to do for survival. Limiting and false beliefs that make me feel caged, trapped, stifled. Not being centered in myself, being ungrounded.

And what makes me get that connection back?

Stepping back and looking objectively. Disidentification. Saying "no". Trusting my own judgment and estimation of events, validating myself. Eating well. Exercising. Meditation. Nature. Sunlight. Green juice. Conscious media consumption, being aware of symbols in the news and in stories. Stories that humanize and spiritualize the human experience. Really good art. Being grounded in my body. Being sober. Doing work I love. Scheduling time for both work and play each day. Making work and play synonymous. Writing fun stories. Making fun art. Doing my nails. Dressing cute and comfy and put together. Saying no to people I'm not compatible with. Saying no to people who mistreat me or misuse or abuse me. Saying no to people who are being disingenuous, manipulative, rude, trolls, bullies, making fun of me disguised as joking, or can't accept the gifts I give them. Saying no to people I just don't like or want to be around. Being kind to people. Random acts of kindness. Smiling at people. Gratitude. Nature. The sky, stars, wind, rivers, ocean, trees, bugs, plants, rocks, canyons, lakes. Looking at pretty houses. Beautiful clothes. Pretty jewelry. True artistry and craftsmanship. Following my heart. Connecting to my heart daily. Meditating on god, the sun, the galactic center, Jesus, etc. Doing what I love for money. Getting paid and making money. Having more then enough. Having just enough. Not having enough and knowing it will be okay anyways. Trust. Faith. Allowing. Letting go. Shifting beliefs, doing shadow work, doing parts work.

Honestly, being in a relationship makes me lose connection towards myself. What makes me get it back is a breakup, when we break up I finally feel that sense of autonomy again. And do what I gotta do.
