5 Valentine's Day Affirmations for Self-Esteem

February 12, 2024 Martha Lueck

I've found Valentine's Day affirmations helpful. For some people, Valentine's Day is full of flowers, candy hearts, thoughtful cards, fancy dinners, and romance. For others, it is a fun day to celebrate with family and friends. But for people struggling with depression or anxiety, this holiday can bring about feelings of loneliness, anger, and envy. It can be a reminder of heartbreak and loss. If you are going through a difficult time right now, here are some Valentine's Day affirmations for you.

5 Valentine's Day Affirmations for Self-Esteem

  1. Your feelings are valid. Perhaps on this holiday, you feel embarrassed about being single. Or maybe you still feel angry at your ex-partner for hurting you. Whatever the case may be, you are allowed to have a wide range of feelings. It is okay to cry and to reach out for help.
  2. You deserve to feel loved. If it has been a long time since someone made you feel loved, you might have forgotten what love feels like. Perhaps you doubt that you deserve it. Let this Valentine's Day affirmation assure you that you deserve to feel loved. You deserve to feel admired, respected, and valued.
  3. You are important. Perhaps your life requires you to care for others, but no one says thank you or acknowledges your hard work. This might make you feel undervalued and unappreciated. Please remember that no matter what anyone does (or doesn't) say, you are important. Your kind actions have a positive effect on another person's life, even when no one else sees it.
  4. Anything can change at any time. If you have been single for a long time, you might think you are going to be alone forever. But please remember that the present does not determine the future. Anything can change at any time. You might meet your soul mate sometime today, tomorrow, or next month. You never know. But when it happens, it will be wonderful.
  5. Your imperfections make you unique and special. Maybe someone ridiculed you for having imperfections. So you spent a lot of time trying to be better or to be perfect to win that person's approval. But the truth is that you don't need to be perfect to be valuable. Imperfections make people unique and special.

I hope that some of those affirmations help you see the beauty that shines through you. Do you have any of your own affirmations for Valentine's Day? Spread the love by sharing them in the comments.
