Positive affirmations for self love offer a powerful antidote to self-doubt, low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy.

But first you actually have to come up with effective, comforting, and memorable self love affirmations to say to yourself!

And that bit’s easier said than done- especially if you’re at an emotional low point.

That’s why I decided to put this post together.

As no stranger to these kinds of negative thoughts and feelings, I figured it might help someone in a similar situation to have a list of self-loving affirmations to draw from.

Sound good?

What Are Affirmations for Self Love?

I thought it might help to begin with a definition though:

In a nutshell, positive affirmations are simple statements on things we’d like to:

  1. Believe about ourselves or
  2. Welcome into our life.

And affirmations of self-love are phrases that revolve around matters of self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence.

By repeating them time and time again to ourselves (or others), the goal is to alter our current pattern of negative thoughts and feelings.

Through some quirk of psychology, saying something enough convinces us it’s so.

The secret to success, according to Tony Robbins, though, is to combine the affirmation itself with a shift in your state.

You have to emotionalize.

If you really feel what you’re saying, you’ll be ten times more likely to convince yourself you believe it!

Otherwise, you’re just verbalising.

And your brain will beg to differ.


I think all of us could benefit from self love affirmations sometimes. But they can be particularly helpful in certain situations…

How to Use Affirmations for Self-Love

What’s your unique inner critic been uttering to you recently?

And what do you need to hear to refute its insidious whispers?

Reflect on those kinds of questions and then select an affirmation that speaks to you.

For example, if I feel useless and full of self-loathing, I might pick something like:

  • “I am enough”, or
  • “I am a good, kind-hearted person with lots to offer”

From there, it’s a matter of taking the time to say it!

And not just once. Say it over and over again. Out loud.

Do it every day, multiple times if you can.

It’ll feel atrocious at the start.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll cringe, blush and tell yourself you’re being stupid.

But, remember, that reaction’s probably coming from the exact same part of you that’s causing the lack of self-love in the first place.

And (because everyone deserves to feel good about themselves) it has to change.

So stick with it!

It shouldn’t be too long before you notice a difference in a) how self-love affirmations feel to say, and b) how you feel about yourself.


This is one affirmation for self love that I use in my own life! I hope you find some in the coming list that bring value to your life too.

Remember These Affirmations for Self Love

Having struggled with a sense of self-doubt and inadequacy a lot throughout my life, I can confidently say how much it sucks!

Whether it’s conscious or not, that insidious voice inside your head saying you’re not enough takes a toll.

It can damage your confidence, make you anxious, and, ironically, turn you into an egomaniac- where your underlying insecurity expresses itself as arrogance.

Thankfully, affirmations for self love offer a (potential) solution.

They’re not a quick fix or a miracle cure. Yet, by all accounts, they can be a powerful tool for rebuilding self-love over time.

I hope this long list of self love affirmations will help you do exactly that.
