The problem with negative thoughts is that they can become self-fulfilling prophecies. We talk ourselves into believing that we're not good enough. And, as a result, these thoughts drag down our personal lives, our relationships, and our careers. Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome self-sabotaging and negative thoughts. When you repeat them often and believe in them, you can start to make positive changes. Many of us do repetitive exercises to improve our physical health, and affirmations are like exercises for our mind and soul. These positive mental repetitions can reprogram our thinking patterns so that, over time, we begin to think – and act – differently and better. Generally speaking, validation builds relationships and helps ease upset feelings. Knowing that you are understood and that others accept your emotions and thoughts is powerful. Validation is like relationship glue. Self-Validating your thoughts and emotions will help you calm yourself and manage them more effectively. Validating yourself will help you accept and better understand yourself, which leads to a stronger identity and better skills at managing intense emotions. Self-validation helps you find wisdom. What I am hoping to accomplish with lyrics is to create affirmations and provide validation and put them both to music so the same way a song gets inside your head – I hope the meaning behind the lyrics do that as well.
