What are affirmations for self-love?

What’s the point of positive self love affirmations? 

What’s the point of trying, if we try and try and yet, we keep dissing ourselves?

If our self-worth is in the tubes?

Here’s the answer:

Because, while we think negatively at times, act small, and be foolish, we can be our own best friend.

We can find ourselves again.

And we can quiet our inner critic.

Which is VERY helpful because we’re human.

We need self love affirmations

We all need self-love affirmations for our personal growth and because our natural thinking might be temporarily sprained.

Positive affirmations remind us that we are stronger than we think.

Quite honestly, even though I’ve written a book on positive affirmations and self-love, sometimes my thoughts wouldn’t lift a balloon.

Affirmations empower you and give you courage in the moment when you need it most.

Self-love affirmations tell you you’re worthy

And, affirmations help you practice self-love, because sometimes we all need practice.

Mostly, self-love affirmations help you live authentically.

Self-love affirmations affirm that you are worthy of love. It’s your thoughts telling you: You are a lovable and loved person… and worthy of love.

See, we think about 60,000 thoughts a day. And it’s true, we don’t have control over most of them.

Part of personal work is being true to yourself, because what we focus on expands.

For example, if you think about what scares you, you feel more afraid.  

And, when you worry about what can go wrong, you see all that can go wrong. 

If you focus on what you don’t have, you feel like you don’t have enough.

However, since thoughts are contagious, our self-loving affirmations begin to take root over time, provided we’re doing the work on ourselves in conjunction with the affirmations.

And finally, if you focus on who doesn’t love you, you feel unloved and lonely! 

What you focus on gets bigger.

So, you want to learn thinking habits that support and love you.

And you’ll want to say daily affirmations.

The wish of this article is to help you focus in a self-love direction at least a few minutes a day.

And if it’s more, better yet!

Self esteem is part of self worth

Sometimes we forget that we deserve love. Or, we never built that muscle in the first place. So, we badly need self love affirmations to remind us.

Damn tricky childhood that zapped our self esteem!

Darn the things we had no control over. It ain’t easy.

So, unfortunately, we’re hard on ourselves.

We pick on ourselves, point fingers, and wonder how in the world we got it so wrong.

Then, we drop into the rabbit hole of why we said this to that person, and what were we thinking?

And what the heck am I doing speaking my every thought?

Should I never leave the house?

That’s why we need self love affirmations.

And positive affirmations.

Because we are capable of amazing things.

Self love affirmations help with personal growth

So, the promise of affirmations is that you’re programming your subconscious mind.

You’re creating the HABIT of reminding yourself that you’re good enough while also doing the inner work.

Low self esteem can be chipped away as we commit to ourselves, so self-esteem affirmations are part of growing self-love.

In your own life, there are things you need to feel and resolve on your timeline. And practicing positive thinking habits will help you as well.

We’ve all got them.

You’ve heard you feel it to heal it...

This ONE THOUGHT is pasted on my forehead, because it’s that important.  I avoided my feelings as long as I could!

Be aware of negative self-talk

An important note while you’re affirming self love is to be mindful of negative self talk. To read more about that here are Tips for positive self-talk.

What we say when we talk to ourselves matters… a lot.

Final thoughts

Positive self-love affirmations are like a warm blanket. And positive thoughts give us positive energy.

Positive affirmations remind us what we’ve forgotten.

You deserve happiness, inner peace and love.

A big part of practicing self love in your own life is allowing your whole experience.

So yes, affirmations are supplemental to doing the inner work and personal growth. And here’s a good time to mention this…

Self loving affirmations are key, so that we’ll own your feelings and own your self worth.

It’s self-loving to let yourself feel the range of your emotions.  And it’ll lighten your load at some point, because you’re designed to heal. 

And the great news is, as you heal your life, you heal the planet. 

NOTE: Self-obsession and narcissism are the opposite of self-love.
