List Of Positive Self-Love Affirmations To Daily Switch Off Your Inner Critic

Did you know you may be the biggest hater of yourself? Do you really love yourself unconditionally? Is your self-talk mostly negative?

Self-love is one of the hardest skills to cultivate. We hate ourselves, and then we hate each other. Sadly, love is not in the air.

Self-love is the foundation of all love. If you want to love others, you need to start with yourself. Now the question is – how do you cultivate self-love?

One of the best ways to fall in love with yourself is through affirmations. Self-love affirmations can change your internal monologue and reprogram your subconscious mind. Over time, self-love will come naturally to you.

Now you may be wondering…

Do Self-Love Affirmations Work?

There is strong evidence that self-affirmations can work.

Self-affirmations can increase self-compassion and pro-social behaviors (study). It may result in beneficial health-related outcomes (study). It can end rumination and hence change your default thinking patterns (study).

However, there’s a catch. Self-love or self-esteem affirmations may have the opposite effect sometimes. We’ll discuss that at the end of the article.

For now, let’s find out…

How Do Self-Affirmations Work?

Affirmations increase activity in the brain regions associated with valuation and self-processing (study). They stimulate many regions of the brain namely, the medial prefrontal cortex, posterior cingulate cortex, ventral striatum, ventral medial prefrontal cortex, and more.

Self Love Affirmations Brain Activation

The more you focus on the affirmations, the more they impact your brain. Over time, they change the perception of yourself, the people you interact with, and the perception of reality itself.

Affirmations are words you use to override your brain to change the way you feel and think. Through affirmations, you radiate positive energy and empower new beliefs. As your thoughts and feelings become positive, your actions and results turn positive.

Now that you know the mechanism behind positive self-affirmations, let’s talk about how you can use them to increase self-love.

How Can I Improve My Self-Love?

Self-affirmations are great for practicing self-love. But before using them, you need to be aware of your current programming. To do that, observe your self-talk.

Notice how your self-talk affects your belief system and your reality. Meditation, mindfulness, and journaling can help you with that. Once you’re aware of your default thinking patterns, affirmations can help you change those patterns and beliefs.

With affirmations, you can reprogram your subconscious mind by changing your dominating thoughts. Using affirmations is like a workout for your mind, where the goal is to change your default thought process through neuroplasticity.

Think of yourself as a gardener where your mind is the garden and affirmations are the seeds you plant in your mind. To harvest positive thoughts, behaviors, actions, and results, you must take care of the garden and take out the weeds.

“The toughest thing is to love somebody who has done something mean to you… especially when that somebody has been yourself.”

Fred Rogers

With that said, here are the seeds (the list of self-love affirmations) you can plant in your mind today:

The Downside Of Self-Affirmations (When Affirmations Don’t Work!)

You may be feeling great after reading the powerful self-love affirmations above. But be careful. This positive feeling won’t last unless you learn how to use affirmations effectively.

If you let your analytical mind (or inner critic) talk louder than your affirmations, it will override your mind and have an opposite effect (study). Moreover, affirmations may put a bandage over a wound, but they don’t heal the wound.

Going deep within yourself will help you identify your unresolved traumas, limiting beliefs, and irrational fears that create self-sabotaging behaviors. You can do it yourself through journaling or you can go to a therapist. Getting a personal coach is also an option if you also want to grow and focus on your future.

But this doesn’t mean positive self-affirmations are a waste of time. In fact, they are extremely powerful if you use them correctly. The two biggest success factors are repetition and emotions.

Reading positive affirmations once won’t work. You need to repeat them often and pour in as much emotion as you can. You can also back up the belief in your affirmations with a memory from the past, a small win in the present, or a visualization of the future.

You can use ThinkUp (iPhone app), Self Talk Plus (online program), InnerTalk (online store), or the free scripts below for your help.

Conclusion (+ Self Affirmation Quotes)

You are the product of your programming. Your thoughts create your future. If you want a different future, you need to change your present programming.

Self-affirmations can change your programming. But most people won’t put in the effort to use them because they are slaves of their minds. You need to rebel against your mind to make positive self-love affirmations a daily habit. The affirmation quotes below will give you all the inspiration you need to start today:

“Thoughts of your mind have made you what you are and thoughts of your mind will make you what you become from this day forward.”

Catherine Ponder

“The words you speak become the house you live in.”


“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”

Albert Einstein

“The word is not just a sound or a written symbol. The word is a force, it is the power
you have to express and communicate,
to think, and thereby to create the events of your life.”

Don Miguel Ruiz

“Affirmations are our mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily.”

Tia Walker
