    Hi Everyone!

    At this point in my journey, I feel that affirmations have been the most beneficial way to manage my TMS. I have been so focused on my thoughts and feelings that I got into a little rut. I was feeling down in the dumps and I was paying too much attention to how much I judge myself, my low self-esteem, and the guilt I feel from past experiences. I really needed a way to change my thinking.

    I was exploring this wiki and saw a post where someone mentioned their affirmations. I typed "affirmations" in the search bar and found an incredible page of positive things I can say to myself to change my thinking! I am breaking the cycle and it feels fantastic! If you haven't done this yet, please check it out. It is extremely helpful.

    Hi tink,
    Thanks for these encouraging words about the power of affirmations. I just turned to using affirmations this morning and can see their importance. I haven't worked with affirmations in a long time, but I picked up Louise Hays' How to Heal Your Life and I'm seeing this book in a whole new light. Hays offers wonderful affirmations among other helpful material.
    Best wishes,
    Janine

    This post below is one of my favorites on this site and it's all about affirmations. It has really helped me as well even though I was quite skeptical at first:
