108 Positive Affirmations to Empower Girls

108 Positive Affirmations to Empower Girls

“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” ~ Lao Tzu

Our thoughts have a lot of power. The thoughts your daughter has about herself become her internal talk, which forms her beliefs about herself and her place in the world. One way you can help your girl learn how to harness the power of her thoughts is by teaching her how to use affirmations.

Affirmations are positive, concise statements that help you visualize and believe in the truth of what you’re declaring. Positive affirmations can offer many different benefits for girls, especially tweens, including: overcoming negative self-talk, building self-esteem and helping to build the belief that you have the power to create the life you want.

Why are positive affirmations especially important for tween girls?

The tween years are the perfect time to help your daughter begin a practice of using positive affirmations. At a time when she’s starting to be exposed to messages about how she should look and act, you may observe an increase in negative self-talk as she starts to evaluate herself with others to learn where she fits in. With hormone changes creating all kinds of shifts with your daughter’s emotions, learning to use positive thinking and affirmations can also be a way to help her ground herself and find balance.

Here’s a list 108 positive affirmations to share with your daughter. I’ve also created a list you can download and print for an easy way to share.

  • Write affirmations down in different places to use as helpful reminders
  • Use the list as inspiration to create affirmations that are personal to you
  • Make sure they feel natural to you and like something you’d say
