Have you ever Googled “self-love affirmations” hoping that they’ll help you with self-love, but almost feeling like they… didn’t work?

Affirmations sounds nice as an Instagram caption or on a Pinterest quote, but they can often leave us feeling like we’re soooo far away from our goal. In this episode, Mary explains the psychology behind why affirmations don’t work and what you can do instead that will really help you in your self-love journey.

Note: if affirmations work for you, then that’s great! Do what’s best for you. But try this other practice too and see how you feel. 🙂
