Right now I am working on an article that I am super excited about! More to come on that later. However, I will tell you that I interviewed multiple therapists from LifeStar therapy network for this article, and they gave me tons of really helpful information. One of the things I asked them about is the whole "personal affirmations" thing, On the website they suggest that both the sex addict and the spouse do personal affirmations durring their recovery.
What is a personal affirmation? I don't know what the technical definition is, but I think of them as warm and fuzzy thoughts or thoughts that boost your self esteem.
Think about the scene from "The Help": "You is kind, You is smart, You is Important."
That's one of the reasons I like to post quotes and "affirmations." 'Cause whether or not you are going through something traumatic, little pick-me-up thoughts can make a big difference in your day. Just think of me as affirmation central.
So . . . stay tuned for more personal affirmations. :)
And Remember, "You is kind, You is smart, You is important."
