Looking for assistance reframing negative truths I hold

Recommended Posts

Hi there community, 

Sending love to everyone.

I am hoping someone can help me write positive affirmations to counter the following negative truths I have been holding onto.  

1. Having genital herpes makes me undesirable 

2. I am disgusting

3. Surely, he won't like me 


I have done the following for the below truths I hold, but I am struggling with the ones above. 

1. I brought this on myself | Positive Counter: It was simply bad luck 

2. I deserve to be lonely and sad | Positive Counter: I am human. I've made some mistakes in my life, like everyone. I should not punish myself for it. I deserve to live a good life.

These are good! But even deeper than these is how you treat  yourself in general. Start there and these affirmations and reframes will flow more effortlessly. Have you seen this video yet? https://www.herpesopportunity.com/post/herpes-and-self-acceptance

Use this self-love/self-acceptance practice as a way to shift your own relationship to yourself as the foundational baseline in your life and you'll see the way you talk to yourself shift.

Here's another along those same lines on a radical view of self love: https://www.herpesopportunity.com/post/radical-view-on-self-love
