Now that you have read these affirmations, let’s see how you can correctly apply them.

1. Let go of negative affirmations

How many times a day do you not believe in your abilities, social skills, or even yourself? How many times a day do you catch yourself saying negative insults about yourself?

I’m sure you’ve caught yourself saying things like: I will never make friends, I don’t know how to act like a normal person, All people do is laugh at me.

These negative affirmations are destructive to your self-esteem, your social skills, and your ability to manage your social anxiety.

As soon as you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, pause and stop yourself. Letting go of negative affirmations might be the most important step in learning to use affirmations correctly.

2. Replace with nothing

That’s right. Get used to saying nothing at all.

Pay attention to how you feel when you don’t react to any of your negative thoughts. Get comfortable with not giving them power.

This might be more difficult than you imagined, and that’s okay. You were conditioned to absorb negativity.

3. Incorporate positive affirmations

Now’s the time to start saying positive affirmations. You can say them to yourself internally or out loud. 

Positive affirmations are always in the present tense, include positive words, and are spoken as a fact and the truth.

The most powerful affirmations are the ones that turn your negative thoughts into positive ones

Using the examples above, start saying: I HAVE amazing friends, I AM incredibly smart with social skills, I AM funny and people laugh WITH me.

4. Repeat the process

Using affirmations correctly takes practice and dedication.

Let me say that again. It takes practice, practice, and more practice.

You won’t be able to say these 50 affirmations once and feel much different.

The first couple of times you practice them, you might even feel defeated because they didn’t really work at all.

But keep at it. Keep letting go of negative affirmations, getting comfortable with the silence, and then incorporating positive affirmations.

Social Anxiety Affirmations

If you’re not sure about affirmations, really take the time to practice them. Take the time to really believe in them and their power.

It’s best if you say these positive affirmations for social anxiety both morning and night for 21 days straight.

That’s when you’ll really start to see a difference in your anxiety!

Don’t forget that you can listen to these affirmations for free on Peaceful Awakening Meditations!
