5. It is okay to heal and feel happiness again.
Sometimes, you might feel guilty for being happy or moving on after a loss. Even if you know the person you lost wants you to be happy, the guilt may still hold you back. Use this affirmation to convince yourself that it is okay to heal and be happy because you deserve it.

8. I am not alone, even if it seems like I am.
When you are grieving, it is normal that you might feel alone. Remind yourself that you are never alone, even if it seems like you are. There is always someone you can turn to, and there are other people who are experiencing a loss, too.
If you don’t have anyone in your life that you feel you can turn to, there are other options. You can find a grief support group or talk to a therapist.
9. I will take care of myself.
Taking care of yourself is essential to healing your soul. Even on the days when you don’t want to do anything, you have to get out of bed and do something positive. Spend time pampering yourself, taking a long bath, or anything else that helps you relax and let go.
Taking care of yourself isn’t only about self-care, though, although that is an important part. You also have to ensure you eat well, drink plenty of water, and get enough rest to get you through the day.
10. I am focusing on bonding with those I spend time with today.
Focus on the people who are present in your life today. If you do this, you will notice you feel better.
