Affirmations

Love this child for all she or he has had to defend against.


Know that feelings are to be listened to; they are cues and signals that indicate where you are and what you need.


Mistakes are a sign of growing; remember, be gentle with yourself.


Success is not relative to others.


It is a feeling of love and accomplishment for yourself.


Recovery is accepting yourself for who you are, no longer waiting for others to define you or approve of you.


It is safe to take time to play today. Play fuels your creativity, tickles your Inner Child, and nurtures your soul.


May you respond with the vulnerability of your child, but with the strength of your adult.
Surround yourself with people who respect and treat you well.


In faith one finds the strength to survive times of great fear and sadness.
