Majority of us want a fulfilling love life, yes? We visualize our relationships as being full of intimacy, connection, authenticity, trust, love and romance. But it’s no secret that creating and sustaining a relationship with your life partner takes work. It takes conscious effort and nurturing from both sides, if it’s to continue growing and thriving over the years. And while the word “work” isn’t necessarily fun or sexy in the same sentence as love… well, if you’ve ever been in love, you know the work is ohhh so worth the reward!
There are many exercises and activities out there designed to strengthen relationships. This article, however, will hyper-focus on one: positive affirmations (and more specifically, curated affirmations for love). Incorporating love affirmations into your relationships is simple to do- and the results are powerful. But before we dive in, let’s look at what affirmations are + why they’re so important!
What Are Positive Affirmations?
An affirmation is a thought that you *choose* to think and repeat consistently. Usually each morning after waking up, or each evening before bed- when your mind is most open, relaxed, and impressionable.
Internal thought patterns are important, because they shape how we see ourselves and how we respond + relate to others.
Think of it this way: a loving relationship with your partner won’t be able to sustain if you’re…
- Constantly doubting your self-worth
- Doubting that you’re lovable and worthy of love just as you are
- Full of insecure, negative thoughts about yourself
- Struggling with low self-esteem / lack of confidence
- Bringing past baggage / traumas into your current relationship
- Carrying old, self-limiting beliefs from childhood into adulthood (“I’m not good enough, I don’t deserve happiness, I can’t commit”, etc.)
Thoughts create and color your reality. They determine the relationship you have with yourself- and the relationship you have with yourself always shows up in the relationships you forge with others.
Pro tip:Work with the affirmations about love that resonate with you. Discard the ones that don’t. Affirmations are most effective when they personally resonate! If one makes you cringe deep down inside, skip over it and just keep repeating the affirmations that strike a chord in your soul.
