Every one of you reading this deserves love from the important people in your life.
But just like loyalty, love is a two-way street. If you want to receive an abundance of love from the people in your life, you must have the courage to unapologetically express your true feelings.
At our core, we have an innate desire to be accepted. We need to feel valued by other people in order to feel like we have a place in the world.
Expressing love, whether it’s in big or small ways, is the best way to strengthen your social bonds and live a more meaningful life.
It’s not always going to be easy to express love to your tribe. Your family won’t always feel like family. Your spouse/partner will drive you crazy. Your close friendships will get rocky sometimes. Your feelings for someone won’t always be reciprocated.
In these moments, it’s important that your self-talk doesn’t tilt your emotional scale towards the side of bitterness and resentment. So to that end, here’s a list of love affirmations to keep your heart full during the ups and downs of life.
What Affirmations Should I Use For Love?
The way in which you use love affirmations will depend upon whatever you’re currently looking to manifest in your life.
- Maybe you’re in a healthy relationship and you’re just looking to become a more open, loving partner.
- Maybe you’re searching for love right now and need some positive encouragement to help you attract the right person into your life.
- Maybe you’re feeling a little disconnected from your friends or family and want to start strengthening those relationships.
Whatever form of connection you’re after, it’s important to practice love affirmations that are contextually relevant to these goals.
If you’re going to practice affirmations for love, they should be in line with the specific traits you’re working to develop. Avoid general statements like, “I feel like my heart is full right now.” or “I feel loved everywhere I go.”
For starters, these statements might not even be true. Do you really feel like your heart is full? Do you really feel loved everywhere you go? If not, your brain will recognize the incongruence and your affirmations will have little to no effect.
Let’s compare those statements to something like this: “I can show love to my friends by performing one small act of kindness right now.”
See how much more specific and powerful that is? You’re not lying to yourself, and this statement is certainly relevant to your current goals.
It’s best to apply that same structure to your own affirmations. So if you come across any love affirmation on this list that feels too general, feel free to adjust it however you see fit.
I’d recommend going through the list and picking 2-3 affirmations that resonate with you before customizing them for your own needs.

How You Should Use These Affirmations For Love
Before we wrap up this article, I want to talk briefly about the best way to integrate these love affirmations into your day.
Put simply, you should use these affirmations on an as-needed basis. Use them at the precise moments where you feel your internal dialogue isn’t supporting the warm, loving attitude that you’re trying to cultivate.
Here are some potential scenarios where it would make sense to practice these affirmations:
- You catch your mind judging your partner for one of their flaws
- You’re struggling to express love to the people you care about.
- You’re questioning your ability to attract the right person into your life.
- You’re feeling disconnected from your friends and family.
When you find that your brain isn’t being the positive voice that you need it to be, use positive self-talk to create your own internal support system.
Get into the habit of practicing affirmations in these moments and you’ll have an easier time finding love and expressing affection towards your tribe.
Final Thoughts On Affirmations For Love
