Are your days filled with wishing you had more? Do you ever wake up feeling sad or perhaps feeling a bit alone? Do your thoughts of loneliness ever distract you from the day ahead?
Trust me, we’re all human - we all have good days and sometimes experience more difficult days!
But when life just isn’t how you’d like it to be, it’s easy to get distracted by what you do not have. Seeing friends or family members leading fun and exciting social lives, while you are feeling lonely, can lead to dark paths of isolation. It can be hard to find your way out, especially without the right tools.
Feelings of loneliness are completely normal, and can hit each of us at different times. Maybe your loneliness lingers for months or perhaps just one night.
Regardless, you will find that you have the power to change your thoughts and create the reality of your dreams!
That’s why today, I’m going to share with you 5 positive affirmations you can use to uncover what’s holding you back from living the life you desire and to help you emerge from feeling stuck and lonely.
Think of these affirmation, as the breadcrumbs you will need to find your way back on track to a life filled with happiness and meaningful relationships.

Affirmation #1: I wake up feeling happy
The first step in unblocking feelings of loneliness is taking full responsibility for your happiness. In very simple terms, the Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our life what you are thinking or focusing on. So, whether you’re feeling happy or sad, you’re bringing more of that into your life, the more you focus on it. If you’re familiar with the Law of Attraction, you already know that it’s up to you to allow yourself to feel happy. You have full control over how you feel about your life. Starting the day with this positive affirmation will set the tone for what the rest of your day has to offer. You must see past the self-limited beliefs of feeling empty inside and activate your mind to see happiness.
Affirmation #2: I am grateful for what I have
Turning on happiness is not necessarily like flipping on a light switch, but it can become easy when you are consistent with your affirmations. Finding the gratitude in what you do have, compared to what you do not, is the easiest way to start healing sadness from within. Find time each day to remind yourself of what you are grateful for. That could be having a roof over your head, a comfy bed to sleep in, good health... The list is endless, but the results happen when you start to shift your mind towards a place of feeling grateful for what you have. When thoughts of loneliness start to creep in, remember to lead with gratitude.
It takes several days to form a habit, so lock down a ritual every morning when you wake up and think about all of the things you are grateful for. Try saying them out loud or even make a list, and be sure to keep that list in a place you will see every morning. Maybe it’s on your phone or tacked to your fridge, just make sure it works for you! Getting in the habit of starting your day with feelings of gratitude for what you have, will only lead to more days of feeling fulfilled, just remember to use the Law of Attraction to stay consistent!
Affirmation #3: I am enough
Do these thoughts sound familiar to you?
“I wish I had someone to go with.”
“I wish I had a date for the wedding.”
“I wish I could find someone to travel with me.”
Those “I wish” statements leave so much open to the unknown. So, for whatever it is that you want in your life, a partner, a companion, etc., it’s time to stop wishing and start believing! When you tell yourself that you are enough, you are training your mind to see that loneliness is not an issue because you are the source of the fulfillment you are craving in your life.
Affirmation #4: I am worthy of love
Yes! Yes, you are! If you are feeling overwhelmed by loneliness, it’s easy to get stuck in the comparison trap. When you see the lives of others as what you aspire to have, comparing that to what you are lacking is a recipe for continued loneliness. When you start to tell yourself that you are indeed worthy of love, you will bring more love into your life. If you focus on being worthy of love, that’s all the mind sees, and nothing else.
Affirmation #5: I attract positive people into my life
Maybe you are attending a class reunion and wished you had a date. Maybe you are wanting to try something new and wished you had a companion to tag along. When you voice that you attract positive people into your life, that’s exactly what you’ll attract. The key here, is that you are using the Law of Attraction to set a powerful affirmation that you are worthy of having positive people in your life, and it’s those positive people you are attracting that create the meaningful relationships you are looking for. You are now allowing yourself to be fully loved. With an open heart, full of happiness, gratitude, and love - the thought of loneliness completely disappears.
