Read the set of related affirmations below aloud. It’s important to your conscious and subconscious mind to hear the affirmations said in your own voice. Choose one or two of the affirmations from the set to start working with. You only need one or two affirmations, used consistently, to make a substantial change in your life.

Choose one affirmation that feels easy to you and choose another that generates resistance or disbelief. The idea is to practice extending your current self-imposed limits and encourage growth.

Say your chosen affirmation loud enough for your mind to hear your voice saying the words and take notice of how you feel as you begin and as you continue your practice. Repeat your chosen affirmation multiple times a day for at least 30 days and reinforce your affirmation by writing it in your journal.

You can change your life by beginning an affirmation practice – using one or two favorite affirmations over the course of 30 to 60 days can permanently change your mindset and your life.

This week’s Affirmation post is a little different – I’m giving you 20 different affirmations you can use to start or reinvigorate your practice. One thing I want you to remember is that you DON’T have to start using all of these affirmations right away.

Helping and easing abandonment issues – when you feel as if you’ve been neglected, betrayed, or deserted in your time of need – can feel really hard in the moment. These feelings are real and impactful, and if not dealt with, can cause more problems for you in the future. The good news? You don’t have to stay stuck in the ‘abandonment zone.”

You can use the affirmations listed below to break the abandonment cycle, start to relieve those difficult feelings, and change your mindset. It may not happen instantly, but if you commit to a consistent practice of using affirmations over the next 30 to 60 days, you will see positive changes. 

At the bottom of this blog post, you’ll find a special offer for a couple of resources I know will help you keep moving forward with your Affirmation practice. Take a look at the Affirmations below, and get started!

I am safe from abandonment because I have myself.

People may come and go, but I am okay because I have myself. I care for and take care of myself.

I am always there for me, that is all I need to thrive, and live my best life.

My happiness does not depend on other people. I create my own happiness. I myself have that power.

Today, I feel calm, at peace and I am not afraid of being left because the only thing that matters is that I will never leave myself

I am calm and at peace being by myself, with myself and living for myself.

I am a lovable and likeable person.

When people leave it is not because of who I am. I am worthy of all the best.

I deserve the best, to be cared for, loved, and treated well.

I am not afraid of loss, I am strong, able, and confident, I can deal with anything.

The only person I will aim to please is myself.

I will live my truth, support myself and be kind to myself.

Rejection is a part of life, it is not personal and it will not kill me but will make me stronger.

I am not afraid to face my feelings and tell people how I feel.

I seek healthy attachments to others.

I do not need a relationship to define me, I define myself.

I am okay just as I am.

I look forward to working on my issues and developing my feelings of self love.

My feelings are just feelings, I have the courage to deal with them.

I have to courage to heal myself, my abandonment issues will not overcome me.
