7 Positive Affirmations To Tell Yourself Every Day

7 Positive Affirmations To Tell Yourself Every Day

You are your own best friend and the one most important person in your life. Therefore it is so crucial to consider the way you talk and treat yourself daily. Often we judge ourselves, we feel guilty after doing something wrong and we constantly put ourselves down. Think what a huge difference it will make once you start talking to yourself in a more positive way- with more awareness and kindness. Using only a couple of these affirmations will make significant changes to your daily life.

1. I believe in my dreams

Believe in yourself and all that you are. Believe that everything and anything can be possible and you can have all the things you desire. Telling yourself that you believe in your dreams will help you become a more confident person. One thing that no one can take away from you is your own belief in your ability to succeed and have the life you’ve always wanted. Trust yourself and trust the universe that dreams do come true once you really start believing in them.

2. I am doing my best every day

No matter if you managed to do something small or big today, every day you are giving your best to create the life you want. Success comes in little baby steps and it does not happen overnight. Constantly remind yourself that you do the best you can every day and you learn daily from your mistakes. Even if you had a bad day today, just appreciate yourself for trying and making a little progress every single day.

3. I love myself for who I am

The next time you see yourself in the mirror, stop for a minute, look into your eyes and simply say “I love you”. Tell yourself that you love all the imperfections in yourself because that is really what makes you the person you are. You cannot expect to give love to other people if you do not give it to yourself first. When you start accepting and loving the person you are inside, you will open up your heart to receive even more love and appreciation from other people. Everything starts with you- love yourself for who you are every single day.

4. I am in charge of my own happiness

No one can come and turn you into a more positive and satisfied person. You are responsible for your own happiness. You will be only disappointed if you have expectations of searching happiness somewhere outside of yourself. Realize the truth that you carry all the love, happiness and satisfaction you have always dreamed of inside yourself. Become responsible for your own feelings and take responsibility for this daily.

5. I accept 100% responsibility for my own life

Like the point about being in charge of your own happiness – you need to take full responsibility for your actions too. When you start complaining about your circumstances, your life situation or the people around you you only harm yourself. Nobody is responsible for the life you are living because you are creating your own reality. You, your own thoughts and daily actions shape every single day of your life.

6. The best is yet to come

Now that is really inspirational to tell yourself daily. Believe that even if today was not like you wanted it to be, tomorrow will be a better day. Believe that the next day will bring you better opportunities. By doing that you simply start attracting more positive things into your life.

7. I am grateful for every day

Appreciate every single day for the way it turned out. You do not have the power to change the things that happen to you but you can change your own attitude. Be grateful for every little good thing that the day brought you. Also be thankful that you have been part of this day because it is simply a miracle to wake up healthy and alive and be able to do the things you love every day!

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

7 Signs of an Unhappy Relationship That Makes You Feel Stuck

Relationships are complicated and when you’re unhappy, it can be difficult to tell what’s causing it and what needs to change.

Sometimes it’s as easy as opening up to your partner about your problems, while other times it may be necessary to switch partners or roll solo to get your mind straight.

When you’re in the thick of things, it can be difficult to tell if you’re unhappy in your relationship or just unhappy in general (in which case, a relationship may be just the cure you need).

Here’re signs of an unhappy relationship that is possibly making you feel stuck:

1. You’re depressed about your home life.

No matter what you do in life, you’re going to have good and bad days. Your relationship is no different.

However, no matter what you’re going through at home, you have to feel comfortable in your own home.

If you constantly dread going home because your significant other is there, there’s a problem. Maybe it’s something you already know about, everyone has an argument or just needs some alone time.

When that yearning to be alone becomes an insatiable obsession over the course of months and years, it’s time to realize you’re not the exception to the rule.

You’re unhappy in your relationship, and you need to take a look in the mirror and do whatever it takes to make yourself smile.

2. You aren’t comfortable being yourself.

Remember all those things you discovered about yourself when you first got together? The way your partner made you feel when you met that made you fall in love with him or her in the first place.

If they don’t make you feel that way anymore, it’s not the end of the world. If your partner makes you uncomfortable about being you, then her or she is only dragging you down. It’s up to you to decide how to handle that.

You need to be comfortable with who you are. This means being comfortable in your skin and with the way you walk, talk, look, breath, move, and all the other things that make you uniquely you.

If the person who supposedly loves you doesn’t make you feel good about yourself, know that you can do better. They’re not even one in a billion.

3. You can’t stop snooping.

Mutual trust is necessary in any relationship. The only way to get that trust is with respect.

I can find you anywhere online, no matter how private and secure you think you are. The odds of you having a password I can’t crack are slim. If we’ve met in person, I could install a remote key logger on your device without even touching it.

Finding your information online hardly takes a clandestine organization. Any idiot with a Wi-Fi-enabled device can cyberstalk you. I’m just the only idiot in the village admitting it.

So now that we know everyone snoops, it’s time to address your personal habits. Governments snoop because they don’t trust us. If you’re snooping on your partner, it’s because you don’t trust them.

It’s ok to have doubts, and it’s perfectly normal to look into anything that looks weird, but keep in mind that data collection is only half of an investigation.

If you find yourself constantly snooping and questioning everything, clearly there’s a trust issue and the relationship likely needs to end.

4. You’re afraid of commitment.

If you’ve been dating longer than a year and you aren’t engaged, it’s never going to happen.

Commitment is important. People will come up with a million ways to describe why they can’t be committed.

No matter who you are if you like it, you need to put a ring on it. Find an engagement ring, stick a gemstone in it and marry the person. If you’re not legally able to get married or you don’t believe in it for one reason or another, have a child (or adopt one, however you’re able to) or treat your partner’s family like your own. It’s a huge financial and mental commitment.

If you’re not ready for one or the other after some time, don’t waste anymore of your precious life on the relationship.

Your relationship should be something that propels you forward. If it’s not going anywhere, make it an open relationship and call it what it is—dating multiple people.

5. You imagine a happier life without your partner.

If all you’re doing is imagining a happier life without your partner, it’s a sign that you’re in the wrong relationship. You’re unhappy and you need to get out.

Your partner should be included in your dreams. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a future with someone.

Try to remember what you dreamed of before you got your heart broken by the realities of life, love and the pursuit of human success.

Remember when you would crush on that cute kid in class? You would secretly imagine marrying him or her and going on an adventure—that’s the way life should be.

If you’re not at least imagining adventures together, then why are you in that relationship?

6. You resent, rather than love your partner.

When a relationship starts to crumble, you begin to resent your partner for all the things you once loved about him or her.

When you’ve reached this point, your partner has reached at least No. 2 on this list. From your partner’s perspective, your unhappiness with them is picked up as bashing them for being who they are.

If you’re both unhappy in the relationship, it’s better if it ends as quickly and painlessly as possible.

7. You chase past feelings.

It’s okay to reminisce about the past, but if all you do is wish things were like they used to be, it’s a sign you’re not on the right path.

You’re unhappy and, at the very least, you need to have an open dialogue about it. This isn’t necessarily a sign that the relationship should end, but it definitely needs a spark.

When you talk to your partner candidly about what it is you’re looking for, you never know how they’ll react. The risk alone is worth it, good or bad.

Final thoughts

If you’re feeling stuck in your current relationship, it’s time to reflect about it with your partner. Don’t ignore these signs of an unhappy relationship as they will slowly go worse and harm both you and your partner in long-term.
