Becoming a mom is equal parts amazing and frightening. While everyone is always praising how beautiful, joyous, and wonderful this moment in your life is – you know well, that’s not always the case. Many moms experience self-doubt, anxiety, depression, exhaustion, low self-esteem. The list goes on forever. Affirmations can help you wash over those feelings and help you be happier and calmer.

Whenever those moments of anxiousness kick-in, repeat these kind words to yourself.

1 of

I’m Enough

Sometimes, moms can suffer cases of imposter syndrome. Social media can be very deceiving and make you doubt your progress and parenting skills. You’re the best mom your child can have. You are more than enough.

2 of

I’m Creating a Life That I Love

Motherhood is a beautiful thing, but often, you can get lost in day-to-day life. Whatever your choices are as a mother, remember that you’re paving the path for the life that you want. Even if you don’t know where that path is taking you.

3 of

In the Eyes, Mind, and Heart of My Child, I’m a Good Mom

It’s easy to get carried away when dealing with parenting criticism. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. The only one that matters to you is your own and your child’s. Know that in your child’s eyes, you’ll always be taking the extra step to become the best mom.

4 of

One Bad Day Doesn’t Make Me a Bad Mom. One Bad Day Makes Me Human

Moms are not perfect, nor should they expect to be perfect. You must remember that not every day will be great and that’s okay. Everyone has ups and downs, embrace both ends of the spectrum and make peace with the fact that, hey, you’re human.

5 of

All Is Well. They Are Well, and I Am Well

Being a mom brings with it a myriad of worries. When you feel overwhelmed by all the changes, take a step back, and reflect. Try a meditation session or a breathing practice to remind yourself that everything is going to be okay.

6 of

My Marriage Is Becoming Stronger, Deeper, and More Stable

Many moms fear their new role as a parent will affect their marriage. While this might feel true some days, remember that your marriage is stronger than ever, thanks to your little bundle of joy. Make sure to save time to spend with your partner and foster a stronger relationship.

7 of

I’m Fit, Strong, and Beautiful

It’s easy for moms to lose track of their fitness habits. After all, a lot is happening in your life right now. If you start noticing low self-esteem patterns, fight back. Repeat this and other self-love affirmations to remind yourself that you’re a beautiful, fit, and strong person.

8 of

I’m Doing a Great Job with The Tools I Have Available

It’s easy to feel mom-guilt at the end of the day. Remember that you’re doing the best you can with what you know and what you have. Try to silence the noise from the outside making you doubt your decisions as a mother.

9 of

I Forgive Myself for Being an Imperfect Parent

What’s perfection, after all? Don’t try to fill your definition of what a perfect parent should act, look, or talk like. No one is perfect. In the end, everyone is an imperfect parent trying to become the best possible version of themselves for their children.

10 of

Taking Care of Myself Makes Me a Better Mom

It’s so easy to dump all your energy into raising your children and maintaining your family. But what about you? Remember that parents need self-care too and that when you choose to dismiss caring for yourself, you won’t be able to care for others. Make it a priority to schedule some “me time” whenever you can.

11 of

My Family Appreciates and Loves Me, Even When They Forget to Tell Me So

Moms go to great extents to make sure their families are taken care of. Sometimes you feel as if your efforts are worthless to your family. Take a step back and remember they do cherish what you do for them. Your family is extremely grateful for everything you do, sometimes they might forget to voice it, but that doesn’t mean they don’t believe it.

12 of

I Radiate Beauty, Charm, and Grace

Some days can be difficult, and you might not feel you are at your best. This is normal. Take a good look in the mirror and remember that you’re beautiful, charming, and graceful. Repeat these words until you feel that warm, comfortable feeling deep inside you. Overcoming negative self-image is possible and should be part of your self-care journey.
