CKH Connection - Affirmations

Affirmations are statements that can serve as inspirations as well as simple reminders. It may seem like an easy thing to do as it is something that we desire to share with others but for many it is awkward, they don't know what to say or just forget to share. Who doesn't feel touched when someone shows their appreciation or recognizes you!


Give affirmations a try with your friends, family, or colleagues. Here are a few ways to get you started!


1. You've made me a better person. (Who has helped you on your personal journey?)

2. I've looked up to you. (Who is someone you admire?)

3. Thanks for being there for me. (Who is there for you no matter what?)

4. I'm so proud of you. (Who have you seen overcome a difficult situation?)

5. I love spending time with you. (Who do you have the most fun with?)

6. You're so good at that. (Everyone is good at something.)

7. That's my favorite thing about you.(Someone who add value to you or the people around them.)

8. You amaze me. (There is nothing more honoring and humbling to amaze a fellow friend.)

9. You're the only person I can talk to. (Who is your special person? Let them know how meaningful your friendship is.)

10. I love you. (Don't let someone you love go without knowing it.)
