I want to learn to accept myself – I am learning to accept myself – I accept myself


I’ve been working on the positive self affirmation list and added in more choices after getting some feedback. Some were finding that saying ‘I love you’ to themselves felt untruthful when they don’t fully feel it.

Others were okay with saying it regardless of not feeling it fully and able to connect to the part of themselves inside where it feels true. I’m okay with it personally, even though I’m not fully loving myself yet.

I was taking a bit of an uncompromising stance on it as I consider us all to be lovable, good enough, worthy of care, respect etc whether there’s some resistance or not. The part that doesn’t believe it is mistaken anyway imo, old faulty conditioning.

So I was reading a book by Louise Hay and she suggested starting with a statement of intention first to help make it more accessible. The book suggested just saying the first bit for a while is enough to get going.

I want to learn to like you – I am learning to like you – I like you

I want to learn to love you – I’m learning to love you – I love you

I want to be here for you – I’m learning to be here for you – I’m here for you

I want to respect you – I am learning to respect you – I respect you

I want to care for you – I am learning to care for you – I care about you

I want to appreciate you – I am learning to appreciate you – I appreciate you

I want to value you more – I am learning to value you more – I value you

I want to have more trust in you – I am learning to trust you – I trust you

I want to learn to be here for you – I am learning to be here with you – I am here with you

I want to support you more – I am learning to support you – I support you

I want to learn that I am lovable – I am learning that I am lovable – I am lovable

I want to feel good enough – I am learning to feel good enough – I am good enough

I want to learn to be kinder to myself – I am learning to be kinder to myself – I am kind toward myself

I want to learn to accept myself – I am learning to accept myself – I accept myself

I want to learn to like myself – I am learning to like myself – I like myself

I want to learn to love myself – I am learning to love myself – I love myself

I want to learn to value myself – I am learning to value myself – I value myself

I want to learn to trust myself – I am learning to trust myself – I trust myself

I want to learn to support myself – I am learning to support myself – I support myself

I want to learn to be a friend to myself – I am learning to be a friend to myself – I am a good friend to myself

May add a few like these below to the start….

I want to stop criticising myself – I am learning to stop criticising myself – I don’t criticise myself

I want to stop attacking myself – I am learning to stop attacking myself – I don’t attack myself
