Affirmations for breaking free every time you catch yourself trying too hard to get someone’s approval
Something changes in you when you say these words to yourself. Pleasing is good but blind devotion is a no-no. It’s necessary to change the scenario to one that uplifts you. By declaring these statements genuinely and mean them, you have been delivered from people.
I will not try to convince this person about my worth, I will convince myself, I will not try to convince this person about how awesome I am, I will convince myself, I will not try to remind this person how much effort I put into showing up the way I do every day, I will remind myself, I will not try to gain his respect, I will show respect to myself, I will not look for his validation anymore, I will look to myself and look out for me.
I heard these affirmations for the first time while listening to a presentation by Florencia Andres, a motivational speaker in the US. They resonated with me completely and they help me to make a decision quickly whenever I catch myself caring a little too much about anyone's opinion of me. I am positive they can help you too.
When you utter these words to yourself with unwavering conviction, a powerful transformation begins to unfold within you. It is a shift that stems from a place of self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-empowerment. You declare to yourself that you no longer seek external validation or approval, but instead, you choose to cultivate an unshakable belief in your own worth, capabilities, and inherent value.
Saying, "I will not try to convince this person about my worth, I will convince myself," is a declaration of self-validation. It signifies a departure from the futile pursuit of seeking validation from others. Instead, you acknowledge that your worth and intrinsic value are not determined by the opinions or judgments of someone else. You take ownership of your self-worth and affirm your belief in your own capabilities and strengths.
Furthermore, when you assert, "I will not try to convince this person about how awesome I am, I will convince myself," you embrace the responsibility of recognizing your own awesomeness. You understand that your worth is not contingent upon someone else's recognition or praise. By internalizing this truth, you free yourself from the need for external validation and discover the joy and fulfilment that comes from self-appreciation.
Moreover, when you proclaim, "I will not try to remind this person how much effort I put into showing up the way I do every day, I will remind myself," you reclaim the power to acknowledge and honour your own efforts and dedication. You shift your focus from seeking recognition from others to recognizing your own commitment and perseverance. This mindset allows you to cultivate a deep sense of self-respect and gratitude for the daily strides you make towards your goals and aspirations.
Additionally, when you declare, "I will not try to gain his respect, I will show respect to myself," you recognize that respect is earned, not begged for or demanded. You honour yourself by setting boundaries, prioritizing your well-being, and treating yourself with kindness and compassion. By focusing on self-respect, you cultivate an inner strength and dignity that radiates outward, commanding the respect of others based on your unwavering self-assurance and authenticity.
Finally, when you affirm, "I will not look for his validation anymore, I will look to myself and look out for me," you make a conscious choice to prioritize your own needs, dreams, and aspirations. You understand that relying solely on external validation is fleeting and unreliable. Instead, you become your own source of validation, drawing strength and inspiration from within. You embark on a journey of self-discovery, self-care, and self-fulfilment, becoming the advocate and champion you truly deserve.
By embracing these affirmations and embodying their essence, you embark on a transformative path of self-empowerment and self-love. You break free from the chains of seeking approval and validation from others, and you create a life rooted in authenticity, self-belief, and personal fulfilment. This profound shift within you unleashes your full potential, allowing you to embrace your worthiness, embrace your uniqueness, and live life on your own terms.
