These affirmations don’t include statements easily disproven by critical self talk. Building confidence requires belief, and repeating a phrase I don’t believe doesn’t help me. Facts which are difficult to argue with are more productive. Here are ten affirmations I’ve written and use to cope with deep insecurity:
I’m experiencing life, my own individual life, and this is a personal journey that only I can describe.
My goals are valuable, I’ve been proven their worth by the fact I desire their results. Being attracted to these goals reveals my values.
My effort is a conscious choice toward progression, consistency doesn’t always show immediate results but does inevitably cause drastic change.
The more I let go of what I cannot control, the more control I have over what’s within my power. I can direct my energy to what can be affected by it.
My mind and body have facilitated all my actions of kindness, compassion, empathy, and love, and will be more equipped for future positivity should I appreciate what they do.
When I experience deep anxiety, insecurity, shame, and self hatred, I’m connected with the instincts of children and the first humans, the instinct to change to survive, and I must be patient.
I will continue to encounter limiting beliefs about myself, but I have tools and skills at my disposal to combat these beliefs so that I may life more peacefully and with more confidence.
I’ve experienced and attained things I once thought were impossible, therefore what I now think to be impossible is certainly not so.
Hiding insecurity doesn’t make it go away. Building self awareness and learning to be healthily communicative will build the strength I need to acknowledge and overcome insecurity.
I feel like an imposter because I’ve been treated unfairly and lied to about who I am and what I’m capable of, not because of anything I’ve done that I perceive as a failure or disappointment.
