Self Discovery and Self Affirmation


Self-Affirmations, Positivity


Practicing confidence-building affirmations can help you to feel more sturdy when you’re being mistreated, dysphoria is kicking in, or the transition process feels like it’s taking too long. One of the trans community’s greatest strengths is our ability to love ourselves into the people we want to be.

Affirmations may feel cheesy or uncomfortable to practice at first, but intentional practice goes a long way towards countering all the negative things you may unintentionally take on or say to yourself throughout the day.
