The way we speak to ourselves internally, on the drive to work in the morning, or while we’re lying in bed at night before we fall asleep, can have a significant impact on our mental health and self-image.

When we speak to ourselves kindly, with love and acceptance, we carry that positivity with us throughout the day, spreading the positive vibes to others and creating a better world around us. We provide ourselves with the opportunity to truly enjoy life, and to live it to the fullest.

Alternately, when we speak to ourselves negatively, the opposite happens. Telling ourselves that we aren’t good enough, that we’ll never get that job, that we aren’t attractive enough, that negativity stays with us throughout the day too. It affects our confidence and self-image. We present ourselves differently to the world when we fill our heads with gloomy thoughts, and we receive energy back based on those feelings.

Positive, self-love affirmations can help bring the love and light we truly deserve into our lives. That love and light begin at the most important source; deep within ourselves. For some, this may take practice. Others may already be familiar with the process.

Self-Love Affirmations and Science

Positive affirmations are part of some of the most common therapeutic techniques used by psychologists today. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, for example, is based on the concept of challenging each negative thought we experience with the opposite. The idea is to re-train our brains so that we can reframe our thinking into productive, helpful mantras instead of getting stuck in self-destructive thought patterns. It is believed that this influences behavior and, therefore, the outcomes of the events that unfold around us.

Self-Love Affirmations and Spirituality

Self-love affirmations also play a key role in many meditation sessions, a practice that dates back centuries to the Eastern world. There is the belief in the Law of Attraction, or “new thought,” that is based on the idea that the energy you expel into the universe will be energy that comes back to you. Ancient religions, including Hinduism, believed in the Rule of Three. Not only will you receive back the energy you put out into the world, but that you will receive it again magnified three times.

The Importance of Self Love Affirmations

Science and spirituality rarely collide, but when it comes to self-love and positive affirmations, the two seem to agree. The way that we speak to ourselves genuinely does matter. A good rule to go by is that if you wouldn’t make the statement to your best friend or your mother, you shouldn’t make them to yourself. What is hurtful to others is hurtful to you.
