Self-Care isn’t this cookie-cutter perfect routine where you engage in a set of behaviors every day for the rest of your life, you’re guaranteed ease.
No, life happens and there are many stressors that are unplanned and we do our best to remain cool but sometimes we need more than just inhaling and exhaling exercises.
Positive affirmations for black women are not only necessary but in a lot of ways is radical.
When you refuse to just take it, you are also making a loud statement that black women are not made to only persevere and keep it together as a strong united front.
Black women deserve ease as well.
In my radical self-care post, I mention how every bit of self-care is imperative when it comes to black women.
Our health literally depends on it. The strong black woman phrase can only go so far if we’re truly struggling to physically, emotionally, and mentally take good care of ourselves.
Affirmations are written statements that one can say to themselves out loud or in their head. After a lot of repetition, many people find it helpful to just memorize the affirmation.
They are primarily used for those who need extra daily encouragement or to help manage life stressors.
In this case, these black girls daily affirmations can be used in the same way. You can say them in the comfort of your home, during a commute, in the bathroom at work, etc
With that being said, knowing that they were created by a black woman for black women should amplify the message that: YOU NEED YOU.
Any word that you immediately connect with. You’ll know what you need when you read it.
Within this list, you’ll find manifestation affirmations, happy black woman quotes, black girl confidence, good morning affirmations, spiritual black woman quotes, queen affirmations, black self-love quotes, growth mindset affirmations, with even some positive black girl quotes.

This eclectic compiled list of affirmations was created to boost confidence in the black community, with the black queens who do so much for others but have a tendency to lose momentum with taking care of themselves.
I sincerely hope that these affirmations work and that you take something so powerful from them, that you pick up on the girl power theme.
When writing them, I wanted to find the great balance of tones inspired by the great Nina Simone, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, with a modern Oprah Winfrey twist.
Tell me, which affirmation did you resonate with the most?
