“If I could sum up why I’m committed to the HR Girlfriends community it would come down to because we are ‘….in this together.'”

~Sana’ Rasul, Chief Girlfriend

Affirmation: Being myself is liberating

At a time when there is so much pressure to conform to norms, I am happy about my individuality.

I feel free when I focus on the version of myself that I am happy with. It is pointless to listen to the opinions of others regarding my choices. Whatever feels good in my soul forms the truth that I live.

It takes away any obligation to watch what I say or how I act. As long as I maintain honorable values, I am at peace with the things that I say and do. It feels good to maintain consistency and honor my integrity.

I feel comfortable being myself because sincerity is easy.

I am honest about who I am and what I believe in. Betraying my morals goes against my character, regardless of the potential benefits.

Regularly testing my limits allows me to see what I am comfortable with. Whenever a particular approach feels uncomfortable, I stay away from it.

I know that I am loved just the way I am. The special people in my life deserve to feel sure about me. Their loyalty to me dictates that I am always honest with them.

Today, the only person that I am committed to being is myself. My mantra each morning is to put the best version of myself forward and make a positive impact on the world.

Self-Reflection Questions:
1. What do I consider my most admirable trait?
2. How often do I commit to expressing myself freely?
3. When is it okay to consider another person’s advice about my approach to things?
