This post is inspired by one of my readers. She reached out to me about the way she views herself, love and whether or not she’ll ever find someone who deserves her. I gave her some dope advice which revolved around self-love and compassion, and I’m going to elaborate on some of the points I made in my message to her, with today’s post focusing on affirmations.
So here is a list I compiled of my favorite affirmations for self-love and compassion.

Once you change your mindset you can change the world. Speak kinder to yourself. Speak positivity over your life. Would you say what you say to, and about yourself to a friend? Or even a stranger? If you’d feel guilty saying what you say to yourself to others, why do you think it’s ok to say those things to yourself?
Or maybe you wouldn’t feel guilty saying those things to friends or strangers. Maybe you already do. Does saying those things to others make you feel any less hurt, abandoned or unworthy of love? Does it get rid of the hole you’re trying to fill? The emptiness you’re trying to get rid of?
Change the narrative. Speak positivity. Watch how your life turns around.
I love you all.
