Positive affirmations

Positive affirmations are quiet reminders that you tell yourself throughout the day, often in order to conquer the whisperings of your inner demon, e.g. the anxiety monster.

My positive affirmation is “I am good enough”.


These words help stop me beating myself up for not being …. enough. Insert pretty much any positive word in the gap, and I have probably thought it of myself. I know we get told to strive to be the best we can be, but for me, this puts too much pressure on myself. I am happy with good enough.

Do you have a positive affirmation? Does it work?

  1. I have to say that normally I think the usual concept of “affirmations” to be both silly and false — to talk to yourself as if what you want is already true when you know it’s not does not seem like a way to feel more trusting of yourself, or to feel stronger. However, your affirmation is believable, — it sounds encouraging rather than false

    1. I know what you mean. I could say, and I could never say anything conceited like “I am the best person in the room”, it would be untrue and a horrible attitude to try and create. But something reassuring seems to work.
