I make myself a top priority.
I clarify my values and priorities. I figure out what is important to me. I explore my purpose. I set compelling and realistic goals.
I validate my feelings. I treat myself with compassion. I accept myself as I am while working on making constructive changes.
I set boundaries. I deserve to be treated with respect. I let others know what behavior is acceptable and the consequences for exceeding my limits. I remove myself from toxic situations.
I advocate for myself. I stand up for my principles. I ask for help when I need it. When I run into conflicts, I search for compromises and solutions that satisfy both others and me.
I live an authentic life. I pursue my own definition of happiness and success. I listen to my instincts.
I take care of my mental and physical needs. I manage stress. I continue to learn and grow. I eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. I sleep well. I listen to my body and see a doctor for routine screenings and symptoms that concern me.
I take care of my social and spiritual needs. I develop mutually supportive relationships. I do work that leverages my strengths and contributes to society. I enjoy enriching hobbies. I pray. I join a faith community where I feel like I belong.
Today, I make choices that help me to meet my core needs. I feel strong and stable.
