I’ve recently become interested in using positive affirmations to overwrite my negative thought patterns. When it comes to using affirmations you have to use ones that are believable to yourself as well as making actual changes to your lifestyle and make goals to work towards. Just saying the affirmations is, of course, not enough. Affirmations need to be true to you in order for them to work. Introspection with every affirmation is needed. Here is a list I have created for myself:
❈ I am trying to be in control of my reactions.
❈ I have the power to change myself and I have been changing myself.
❈ My body is filled with energy, I can feel it.
❈ Everything will be okay.
❈ I believe in myself, I have potential.
❈ I am proud of myself for changing and continuing to do so.
❈ Every day is a fresh start. If I have a bad day it’s okay, it happens, tomorrow I will try again.
❈ I am grateful for my life and for the gift of being alive.
❈ My partner and I have fun together.
❈ I want the best for my partner.
❈ I am trying to live in the present, rather than being stuck in the past or worried about the future.
❈ I am trying to accept and embrace all experiences, including unpleasant ones which provide me with life lessons.
❈ I am ready for new opportunities.
❈ I am trying to be superior to negative thoughts and low actions.
❈ I trust that I am on the right path and moving in the right direction.
❈ I am growing into the person I am meant to be.
❈ I forgive myself for the mistakes I have made.
❈ I am excited for the future.
❈ I am ready for the next chapter in my life. I am ready to grow, learn, and for new experiences.
❈ I am putting in effort to make myself happy.
❈ I am focusing on the positive things in my life. Instead of dwelling on the negative things I am trying to see them from a different perspective.
❈ I understand that great things take time.
