201 Self-Worth & Self-Love Affirmations That Work

Did you know that loving yourself is something you can learn?

Think of your self-worth as if it were a plant. When you water it, it grows. When you neglect it, the plant becomes droopy and a shadow of what it could be.

The first step to growing your self-worth is to recognize that you are deserving of love. More specifically, you are deserving of your own love. A great way to unlock this belief is through the use of positive self-worth affirmations.

If you’re looking for some great examples to use, read on to see our list of 201 self-love and self-worth affirmations.

Before continuing, it’s probably a good idea to understand the importance of self-worth.

Why is self-worth and self-love so important?

What makes self-worth so important is that it directly impacts all our choices and actions.

When you have low self-worth, you are more likely to shy away from challenges or things that scare you. By doing this, you limit your own potential.

For example, imagine one thing that you always wanted to try. You know it would make you happy, yet you hear someone small-minded to put your dream down, and then the idea is abandoned.

Essentially, you didn’t trust your own judgment, and this comes down to a low level of self-worth.

“With realisation of one’s own potential and self confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world”Dalai Lama

That thing could make you happy. It also might have failed – but the failure would teach them an invaluable lesson.

If you don’t learn to love and trust yourself, then you will live your whole life following the ideals of others and that’s why self-worth is so important.

To help with your own feelings of self-esteem, try using some of the self-love and self-worth affirmations from the list below.

Using self-love and self-worth affirmations will help to give you the inner strength to face anything that comes your way.

If achieving a greater sense of self-worth is your true goal, you should also be doing some of these the things below:

3 Steps to improve your self-worth and self-love

Doing daily activities that improves your mood and your well-being is an essential to having a better self-worth and self-love.

When you are taking care of your mental and physical state, it’s a proof that you love yourself and you know your worth.

However, most of the times we forget to do things that we will benefit from and that’s a reason, why you should start doing this things:

1. Stop comparing yourself with others

OK, this is a lot easier said than done, but take a step back and think about it. What actual need is there to compare yourself with other people?

Everyone is unique, on different paths, and all started from entirely different circumstances.

You must also remember that just because someone appears to be living a fantastic life on social media, it’s not necessarily true. For many, attention on social media gives them an artificial feeling of self-worth and this is not a path you want to take.

Comparisons ultimately lead to negative self-talk, which is the root of your anxiety and stress. So, repeat self-worth affirmations and remember to focus on your own life.

2. Daily exercise

Did you know how useful exercise can be to your overall state of well-being?

Not only does it provide you with numerous physical benefits, but it also leads to greater mental health (for greater mental health, try meditation).

Think back to the last time you had a proper workout. Chances are, your levels of confidence and happiness were also heightened thereafter.

Working out makes us feel good about ourselves. So, if possible, set aside some time everyday to get some exercise.

1. Be mindful

To be able to change something about your life, you must first be aware of what it is you want to change.

Practicing mindfulness will help you become aware of your negative self-talk.

Even though self-worth affirmations will help you to destroy limiting beliefs you might have, practising meditation can help you a lot in the process.

As you do this, you’ll develop the ability to distance yourself from these negative emotions and the low feeling of self-worth they create.

Next time you criticize yourself, make a mental note of what’s happening and remember, these are just thoughts and not your reality.

Key takeaways

Never undervalue your feelings of self-worth and self-love.

Only when you truly love yourself will you be able to become the person you were destined to be.
