5 Positive Affirmations for Women to Boost Confidence and Self-Love
As women, we often face pressure from society to have all our ducks in a row—families, careers, relationships, households, and ourselves. We internalize these impossibly high standards and then get down on ourselves when we can’t balance it all with a smile on our face. For me, finding peace has been a process of shaking off negativity and “unlearning” some of those internalized narratives.
But it takes a lot to silence those nagging voices inside. These positive affirmations have been super helpful in changing the channel in my brain when I catch myself in unhelpful thought patterns, and I know they can help you, too. Keep these positive affirmations in your back pocket when you need to readjust your focus and tap into the confidence and self-respect you need to thrive.
1. I am valuable as a woman.
It can be easy to forget just how valuable you are to those around you. As women, we may feel like we’re taken for granted by others, or simply forget how much we mean to our loved ones. This positive affirmation is a reminder that you are valuable—your time, your words, your love and attention. With this mantra, you’ll keep your worth in mind as you navigate interactions with others.
2. I am whole in my womanhood.
This mantra is for those times when you feel like you’re missing some essential component of womanhood. Every woman knows what it’s like to feel as if they’re lacking something, especially when we spend so much time comparing ourselves to other women. This self-love affirmation is to remind you that you are fully-formed and complete, even if you still have dreams yet to be realized.
3. I am doing enough.
In the face of full calendars and impossibly long to-do lists, the best thing we can tell ourselves is that we’re doing enough. There’s no prize for getting as much done as possible. What’s more, valuing productivity over balance can leave you burnt out and anxious. So rather than getting overwhelmed with all the demands on your time, take a deep breath and remind yourself that you’re doing enough.
4. I possess everything I need to thrive.
I sometimes catch myself in a scarcity mindset, looking around at everything I don’t have and wondering what life would be like if I just had that one thing. But beyond the necessities, there are very few material things that can truly change a person’s life. And you already have everything you need to thrive—your intellect, your spirit, your positive intentions, and your support system. Remember this positive affirmation next time you catch yourself wanting what you don’t have.
5. In this moment, I can take positive action.
If you’re anything like me, you've spent a lot of time ruminating on the past and daydreaming about the future. But the past is long gone and the future never arrives—all you have is this moment. So what can you do right now? Maybe you need a moment to yourself with a cup of coffee. Or perhaps you need to sit down and cross something off your to-do list so you can stop stressing about it. Whatever it is, start by repeating this positive affirmation and reminding yourself that you have the power to act in the present.
