Building Confidence With Positive Self-Talk
Practicing positive self-talk can help to build confidence and self-compassion during the recovery process. While you may be interested in adding positive affirmations to your self-care routine, you may have questions about where to start. Here’s what you should know.
Benefits of Practicing Positive Affirmations
Positive affirmations are positive statements that help to challenge unwanted negative and unhelpful thoughts. When practicing positive self-talk on a regular basis, you are able to uphold your own integrity. In other words, by maintaining a positive view of yourself, you are more likely to:
- Maintain a sense of morality.
- Be flexible and understanding.
- Build self-confidence.
- Make positive changes in the face of constructive criticism.
Where to Begin
The great thing about positive affirmations is that you can practice them at any time, no matter where you are. Many people choose to say positive phrases to themselves in the mirror or write them down in a journal. No matter how you choose to practice positive self-talk, some phrases to start out with include:
- I am not my past.
- I am not my mistake.
- I am confident.
- I am worthy.
- I am loved.
- I love myself.
- I care about myself.
- I am proud of who I am becoming.
- I am proud of myself.
- I am strong.
- I forgive myself.
- I am growing every day.
- I am enough.
