Saying affirmations for friends can strengthen your friendships, reinforce your values, and help you make new friends!
By now, you have likely heard of affirmations. When people think of affirmations, they automatically think about affirmations to strengthen their self-worth.
But affirmations can be for anything — including friendship.
No matter where you met or how long you’ve been friends for, they have one thing in common — friends are people we choose to have in our life.
That old cliché “friends are the family we choose” is quite true.
Like all relationships, friendships take effort. Unfortunately, it’s super easy to forget this and take friendships for granted.
This, in turn, weakens the strength of the relationship and can even cause some friendships to drift away. That’s not what we want! This is where affirmations can come in.
Affirmations can help you keep your friendships strong in a unique way. They allow you to vocalize what you need and what you want in your friendship.
By doing this, you are putting the vibes out there, and telling yourself how important this friendship is to you.
This will set you on a good track to take proper action throughout the day (or week) to do things, like reaching out to them, and to be proactive over your friendship.
