13 Mantras That Will Empower You When You Feel Worthless
Mantras are a part of my daily practice and I think they should be part of yours as well. Repeating positive mantras helps create new pathways of thoughts in the mind that can help pull you out of depression and anxiety.
When you constantly notice the negative aspects of your life then everything that comes your way will ignite a negative thought automatically. Making it a point to focus on and repeat positive mantras will allow you to create more positive and fulfilling experiences in your everyday life.
I’ve compiled a list of 13 mantras. These 13 mantras are some of my favorites of all time. Let’s dive in.
1. Everything I need is within me.
This is pretty deep but pretty profound it speaks of true authentic power. Authentic power is the true and natural power that cannot be taken away from you that takes the form of love, compassion, truth, and forgiveness.
2. Die with memories, not dreams
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live” -Albus Dumbledore. Nothing truly exists outside this moment, right now. Go now and live your dreams because tomorrow always comes way too fast.
3. Find a way or make a way
As a fierce single mom, my new favorite thing to say is, “I don’t have problems. I have solutions”. Where there’s a will, there’s a way… and there’s always a way. There is a solution to every problem. I’ve learned that the problems can be very complicated but solutions are always so simple.
4. Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.
This mantra really speaks for itself for the most part. I’ve always learned that sometimes the brave thing to is to recognize when I need to help myself by stepping away from the situation and retreat into solitude. #momlife
5. Confidence is something you create within yourself by believing in who you are
I will never forget the day, the exact moment, where I threw up my hands and gave up trying to be everything for everyone. I indulged myself within myself and discovered who I was. When you know yourself, you know the world, and nothing can stop you.
6. Be someone who makes you happy
If you can’t make yourself happy how are you supposed to spread joy to others? Laugh at yourself. I laugh at my own jokes all the time. Am I crazy? Probably… but I don’t mind being one-of-a-kind.
7. Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody
We’re all equals. Every interaction we share is an opportunity to spread love and connection.
8. I am enough
Oh man… this. I think a year ago I would have scrolled passed this one like, ‘whatever, I know’. It took me many hours, days, and weeks to discover that the root of all my destructive behavior and negative thoughts were an innate feeling that who I was wasn’t enough. I am enough.
9. I give myself permission to slow down
I’m all for working hard and putting in late hours. I LOVE filling my time with as many things as I can. I also understand that I when I start to feel like my fast pace is a chore that it’s time to slow down, sit in the stillness of myself, and connect with everything. I don’t want to miss all the good stuff at the moment. It’s okay to slow down.
10. Choose purpose over perfect
I need to say this mantra more. Choosing purpose over perfect is allowing yourself to let go in many ways. I do just love when things are perfect though… 🙂 Purpose, choose purpose.
11. How you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you.
Our lives are a mirror and we’re constantly seeing a reflection of ourselves. If you see constantly see the negative in the others, understand that the negativity grows from you– not the other.
12. Expect nothing and appreciate everything
This mantra has had a profound impact on my life. This isn’t to say I don’t expect respect and boundaries for my child. This mantra speaks to the higher level of gratitude. I do not expect outside help so when I receive support– it feels magical
13. Being positive in a negative situation is not naive. It’s leadership.
I know this is a quote but I love it so much as a mantra. It’s one of my all-time favorites. I used to think that being negative was realistic. Now I see that there are no opportunities
