    Affirmations.

    What are some good ones you've used before?

    One I have is:

    "Once I accept myself and love myself, I am no longer a victim."
    Eowyn - "The women of this country learned long ago, those without swords can still die upon them. I fear neither death nor pain."

    This is kinda dumb... but when I'm at work and doing a photocake I always chant:

    "This will print out correctly on the first try."

    (Because the printer and scanner are big POS's...)

    I often find it works though.. I know it's not awfully inspiring... but you should experience the stress of using that thing. Hehe.

    ** "Once I accept myself and love myself, I am no longer a victim." **

    Does that work well for you? When I learned about affirmations, I was taught they should always be stated as "I am" statements - not "Sometime in the future I will be" (which the 'once' implies.)

    I was also taught never to use words like 'not' or 'never' - there's been a bunch of studies done that your subconscious processes them weirdly, and so the opposite of what you meant to say may stick.

    So if I was going to use yours, using the methods I've been taught, it'd say something like...

    I accept and love myself. I am a survivor/I am healed/My past can no longer hold me back.

    (Depending which concepts you most wanted to highlight in that 'not a victim') I do use them, but usually they're for pretty specific things. ("I communicate clearly and efficiently", for example.)

    The first step in loving others is loving yourself.

    (same goes for acceptance)

    my affirmations...

    1. I accept myself for everything I am, good or bad.

    2. I am strong and I can take anything that is dished out to me.

    3. It's their loss, not mine.

    4. Anybody who spends their time making others feel bad is not worth my time or friendship.

    5. In the end, we are not in control. We may think we are, but we're not. Whatever is meant to be, will be.

    My Mom has an affermation she is always trying to get everyone to do. We dont but that is probably cause she bugs us so much about it butit goes like this: "I deserve the best that life has to offer." I wonder does that mean she wins since I know it by heart? LMAO

    "I am a wonderful person and deserve to be happy."
    "My inner beauty radiates from within so much that it shines without."
    " I am strong and courageous and will not under go anything I can not handle.'
    "I have control of my own life."

    These are some I use on those days I need certain focuses.
