Positive Affirmations || Change the way you think

It is helpful to hear encouraging words during times of intense emotional distress. Sometimes a supportive friend or partner is not around to provide us with the emotional support and comfort that we may desire. In these times, we must be capable of providing ourselves with this comfort.

Using positive statements can help us develop a new attitude to ourselves and our situations.
