Daily self love affirmations can help. You can download the self love affirmations PDF at the bottom of the post to remind you of this important thing called self love and use it as a visual to support your daily journey.
THINK ABOUT IT
But before we get to the list of positive self-love affirmations, ask yourself… Do you really love and appreciate yourself? No, not in a shallow way. I mean do you truly LOVE YOURSELF – even with all your flaws and imperfections (because we all have them)?
Many people struggle with self love (and self doubt) and you can’t claim to love yourself until you genuinely accept who you are. The main cause of low self-esteem is not primarily what people say or do – but what we think about ourselves and our negative beliefs.
You can get access to these self love audio affirmations. Add this amazing tool to your play list. Put on your headphones and listen to the 5 -minute audio file to help you feel full self- acceptance. These Self Love Audio Affirmations will help you increase your positive thoughts to love your mind, body, and spirit. Start your self-love journey today.
THREE STEPS TO SELF LOVE
The most powerful way to change your thinking about yourself is to try these three positive changes to start your self love journey. Try to include these in your routine every single day. The best way to make change is to make your new personal development skill a daily habit.
1. Look at yourself in a caring and compassionate way, not harshly. Treat yourself as you want others to treat you. Be kind to yourself rather than hard on yourself – even when you make mistakes or feel down and out. Affirm yourself and give yourself the same positive messages that you would give a good friend.
2. Look at your flaws objectively – without criticizing or judging them. Remind yourself that no one is perfect, that we all have our strengths as well as weaknesses. In fact, it’s when we combine both sides of ourselves (strength + weakness) that we are most complete and unique.
3. Change your negative thinking. Think of the reasons why you have self-esteem issues – it may be because you were criticized or rejected a lot in your past, so now you criticize yourself all the time. You may not love yourself because your life is full of problems, so you don’t see any good in yourself. But the point is – you CAN change this negative self-talk about yourself. It’s only a matter of practice and time on a daily basis, but it’s definitely worth it. We all deserve to feel good about ourselves so we can have true self-esteem!
