Affirmation #24 — I can trust myself


I can trust myself!

I can trust myself because I have gotten myself through many awful situations.

I can trust myself because I have the knowledge of many effective skills, and I have the practice of using them.

I can trust myself because despite things, I have gotten myself to where I am today. I’m in my third year of college. I’m not new to being a student.

I can trust myself because I’m the only person on the planet that has the experience of living in my body.

I’m working on trusting myself more, so I was writing down some reasons that I can trust my opinions, thoughts, and emotions. When I am doubting myself or immediately valuing someone else’s opinion over mine, I can remind myself of why I can trust my opinions. I‘m the authority on myself.

  1. Love when you post original drawings and hand-writings 💕

    When we use “despite,” we sometimes revisit it. What is “despite” trying to tell us 🤔? What are our feelings behind that word? How much of our strength did we “despite” out of our affirmation?

    1. Aww, thanks, I’m so glad you like them 🙂

      Hmm, I haven’t really thought about the word “despite.” I guess I kinda meant it in a “I have overcome things” way. Like, my life could have taken a different (worse) direction but it didn’t. I’m not sure though. I’ll keep it in mind 🙂
