This is not something we can stop, because at times it will happen to each one of us. But with affirmations, we can change all of that. One way to stay positive and keep our minds strong is to write affirmations every day. We need to be our own biggest fans.

As the saying goes, when you love yourself, you help others to love themselves. You give people around you reason to stop and say to themselves “I want to be more like her.” 

Affirmations have the power to shape who you are, who you become, and what your life becomes. 

The positive effects of self-love are real, and they are waiting for you!
