The best, most useful time to cultivate compassion is right now. Don’t you think? You could change the course of your future, even how you experience the past if you focused on loving better, deeper right where you are: others, yourself, this breath. Take these love affirmations and use your favorite to bring more fulfillment and ease to all your relationships — even with your barista and the mailman. It’s always the season for love.
Relationships. Even just one. This is what you really need. This is what we need, what humanity has always needed.
We survive by loving each other.
And love lives everywhere. I like to think of it as an ocean of energy that we can always dip into. But we’re most in tune with it when we fall “into” it with someone else — not just romantically, either.
You don’t have to be a relationship expert to feel “into” all of your relationships with more intention, to touch others with your tenderness and care. To lend not just a hand, but your heart.
You can meet anyone — strangers, heck, even yourself — with the same tenderness and acceptance that you meet your friends with and the ones you love most.
By the way, you’re worthy of experiencing that depth of love you’re craving: also known as fulfillment. (Yes, yes, you are. Trust me, I’m your friend, and I’m telling you. It’s why you’re here. This ocean fills every corner.)
Be intentional about how you engage with people, even in quick interactions, and I promise you’ll feel more fulfilled in and because of your relationships. You’ll be swimming in that ocean of love, flowing, not forcing.Instead of passing people by on the street without eye contact or a smile or an actual “hello,” try meeting everyone as a friend today: a friend to your soul. #spreadlove tell a friend
Pick your favorite love affirmations here to keep in the front of your mind today. They’re powerful tools of reconnecting you with people on a meaningful level. Write them down in your own handwriting and then carry them around with you to strengthen the connection (writing is powerful; there’s research).
Stay a beat longer in your hugs and handshakes.
Remember what matters, maybe the only thing that really does: your relationships.
Love Affirmations to Help You Express & Feel the Love with Anyone
1. I meet this person as a friend.
I see this person as a soul crossing my path. What a miracle it is that we’re here like this. I treat this moment like it’s precious, like it’s all I have: a little bit of time together with another.
2. Blessings come through my connections with other people.
What I most want and need is related to the quality of my relationships: here is where grace finds me. I slow down and find something to appreciate. My attention and my intention bring heaven down to earth and joy to the surface.“I feel that loving one another is the only thing real. Don’t let your blessings turn into stone. That kind of living will leave you all alone.” — Trevor Hall, Good Rain #loveeachother spread the love
3. I promote what I love.
I make what I am inspired to make. I follow and leave only love in my wake. My choices reflect my hopes today. Staying true to what I love sends an invitation to others. I radiate my truth and invite.

4. I choose love.
Everything I see is either an act of love or a call for love. I shine light upon the darkness and I bring joy to the surface. Dropping drama and picking up love, I can again claim happiness and peace within. I choose to bring love to the situation that tempts me to follow fear. Love is my ultimate intention, and so I choose to live in a loving world.
From this affirmation written a few years ago: I choose love.Teach others about the values you’d like to see in the world — not through lecture but by example. #chooselove inspire a friend
5. I show up for others in a meaningful way.
It’s not always what I do or say that makes the greatest impact, but how I am. I vow to be there for someone today, to do and say with a presence that can be felt. I show up in a way that makes everyone feel seen and heard.“If someone listens, or stretches out a hand, or whispers a kind word of encouragement, or attempts to understand a lonely person, extraordinary things begin to happen.” — Loretta Girzartis #bethelight inspire a friend
