30 Short Affirmations For Everyone Who Is Ready To Stop Doubting Themselves

In general, it seems to me that affirmations are a concept you either love or hate. Repeating positive words to yourself can sometimes feel hopeless, or it can be the saving grace of an otherwise awful day. But whether or not we like it, we all have days where it seems nearly impossible to stop doubting ourselves, questioning ourselves, and just being unkind to ourselves. So, for those days, having a few affirmations that speak to you in your arsenal is not a bad thing. (It’s important to note that I didn’t write these affirmations; they’re collected from other sites around the internet, and are credited with the link that follows the quote, or the author’s name.) For everyone who spent too much time today doubting themselves, here are 30 short affirmations to remind you of your value:
