What are affirmations?

Affirmations, and breakup affirmations, are generally short, but incredibly powerful sayings.

They usually start with the words “I am” or “I will” and when repeated to yourself, affirmations can really change your brain chemistry and help you be more hopeful and positive.


How do affirmations help during breakups?

Breakups are an incredibly hard thing to go through. Anyone who has been through a breakup knows that they can be very painful, and often take a lot of time to get through.

We often wish we could hit the “fast-forward” button on healing after a breakup so that we didn’t have to feel so much pain. But unfortunately, that button doesn’t exist. 

So what can you do to fell better? 

You can start by choosing a few affirmations that really speak to you.

Once you choose one, two, or a few from the list below, you can start reciting them to yourself every day.

Slowly but surely, as you practice reciting your affirmations consistently, you will begin to see yourself transform into someone who is just a little more hopeful, positive, and strong each day.


How do I use affirmations?

Using affirmations is simple. Once you find some that you like, you can either say them a couple times to yourself (in your head) each day or you can say them out loud.

If you’d prefer, you can also write your affirmations down.

You can write them each day in your journal, or write them down on a sticky note. If you choose to write them down on a stick note, place the sticky note somewhere you’ll see it every day (like on your bedside table or on your bathroom mirror).

This way, whenever you see the sticky note, you can read your affirmations. This will help you be more consistent.

I know this breakup feels terrible, but you WILL get through this. And these affirmations will absolutely help.
