As a human being, it’s natural that you make mistakes, Beauties. Usually, when you make a mistake, quite a few people end up laughing at you, belittling you, and even bullying you for your mistake.
However, a psychologist named BF Skinner who works on behavioral theory wants to inspire you with his positive affirmation that failure is not the end of everything.
Skinner believes that a person’s biggest mistake is when they stop trying and are no longer willing to take advantage of the opportunities that exist. So, never stop trying, Beauties!

Martin Seligman, a psychology figure who is known as the originator of positive psychology, stated that a person’s happiness does not come from other people’s judgments. It doesn’t come by comparing your qualities with those of others.
So if there are people who underestimate your quality, think that you are someone who doesn’t deserve to be happy and aren’t great, you can take steps to be really stupid, but don’t forget to say and practice positive affirmation sentences from Seligman, if you don’t need to compare your quality and measure your happiness from other people’s assessments, especially using their benchmarks as a standard for your happiness.

When you are feeling mentally down, or feeling down, because the various efforts you make always get hate comments or negative assessments from other people, you need to take a break for a moment. But that doesn’t mean running away from problems and stopping realizing your dreams, Beauties.
You can say a sentence from Erich Fromm, a psychologist who is famous for his personality theory concept, who is ready to encourage you that the most dangerous thing in life is when you are willing to become a robot or puppet controlled by other people.
When you are deemed unable to realize your dreams, you still have the right to control where your life goes and how you achieve the goals you want, Beauties!

Carl Gustav Jung, a personality psychology expert, in his positive affirmations also invites you to dare to be yourself. Most people compete to be someone else in order to be accepted and liked.
Even though Jung emphasized that it is important to be open about your strengths and weaknesses. Beauties, self-acceptance is not easy, especially if you have to accept traumatic experiences, unpleasant pasts and the most difficult conditions in your life.
But accepting yourself is one of the best ways to be yourself in order to successfully fight insecurity. That’s what makes you different from other people, because you definitely have something unique that no one else has.
OK, Beauties, those are four sentences of positive affirmations inspired by psychology figures to make yourself more confident and fight feelings of insecurity when you are underestimated by the people around you.
