Having a talk with yourself keeps your self-worth in perspective. Telling yourself you are smart, lovable, and unique helps keep negative thoughts at bay. Affirmations are a common way to help your mind and your mouth stay on the same page.
No, you’re not being told to be full of yourself or to come across as if you are obsessed with who you are.
Affirmations are positive statements about you that are true. You can repeat them a couple of times during the day or when you need to give yourself a self-esteem boost. It is one way to uplift yourself while keeping in mind what qualities you possess.
People take the time to acknowledge others when they do well or when they accomplish something. Do the same for yourself.
While working hard to get things done, whether it is for yourself or others, it is important to remind yourself that you do matter. What you value most defines your worth. Telling these things to yourself every day helps you stay true and humble to your character, qualities, and what you value the most.
Tell yourself what you feel is significant about you. Your self-confidence and self-esteem get stronger when you tell yourself positive things that are true.
Here are some examples of affirmations you can try or adapt into your own:
“I am happy just being myself.”
“I have accomplished great things that made me a better person.”
“I am confident in my abilities to make goals become a reality.”
“I will love myself each day like no one else can.”
“I will accept myself the way I am with unconditional love.”
“I have the right to be happy, and no one can take that away.”
“I truly like myself that way I am; it makes it easier for others to accept me too.”
