When living with Anxiety and Depression, it is often so difficult to see the beauty and worth in ourselves. The brain is faulty in its operation, being deprived of essential nutrients associated with low levels of serotonin, it skews our attention towards negativity and sadness. So we have to use everything at our disposal to be the best that we can be.
A very powerful tool is the self-affirmation; the recognition and assertion of the existence of one’s individual self.
Here is a great positive self-affirmation exercise that I came across on my journey of healing. Take a few minutes right now to think and write down your responses to these questions.
- How have you positively impacted someone who is close to you? What did you do?
- What was their response?
- What was the outcome?
This exercise can be a helpful tool for you in your tool box of self-management, to pull out when you are feeling like you don’t matter. From your responses on this exercise, you clearly do matter.
This is merely a reminder to help you remember that YOU ARE WORTHY.
Many blessings and may the light always shine for you.
