On Valentine’s Day, people express their love for others through words of affirmation: verbal compliments like, “Wow, you look stunning,” written “I love you” notes, and more. Words of affirmation are indeed a love language all their own, but who says they’re only appropriate for lovers? After all, languages can have many different dialects. In the same way, words of affirmation can (and should!) be said by everyone. A thoughtful affirmation can be uplifting and encouraging on any day the year.  

At The Recovery Village, we believe in the power of affirmational phrases and mantras to transform your perspective on recovery. Whether you’re single or in a relationship this Valentine’s Day, you can always use words of affirmation — so we made some just for you, with your recovery journey in mind.
