SLY Affirmations (An Individuals Manifesto)
« on: April 08, 2007, 03:06:03 AM »
(Note: Vashs SLY affirmations... Read these out loud, possibly while looking into a mirror)

I refuse to be told what is or is not universally attractive.
I will instead determine for myself what I will look like and seek out others who will accept, appreciate and love me, as me, for me.

I refuse to be SOLD attractiveness.
I will instead choose the products and services that suit my purposes and work well for me.

I refuse to be shamed or guilted by the media into changing my looks.
I will instead find the body, hair, clothing style that best suits me and makes me most comfortable.

I refuse to cling to or chase my inevitably fading youth.
I will instead embrace my age and enjoy the wisdom each year brings.

I refuse to be made uncomfortable by other people.
I will instead luxuriate in the comfort I find within my own skin and will enjoy and draw confidence from the frustration my comfort causes those who would change me.

I refuse to let the superficial judgments of others affect me.
I will instead instead draw confidence from my knowledge of myself and show that to others.

I refuse to accept the labels of society and the individuals that live within it.
I will instead set my own standards for myself and choose who's opinions I will listen to based on my respect for them.

This is my line in the sand. I am an individual. I am my own person.

Accept me, respect me and I'll do the same for you.

Otherwise  Lips Sealed

I am far to busy being SLY to be troubled by your narrow minded low self worth.


I'd liek to see you guys and gals add to the list of affirmations. You all can add your own stuff to this set of mantras... to help it grow. Just post a reply in the same format:

I refuse to _______________________________
I will instead _____________________________

I'd like to see how far these kind of affirmations can go.

I refuse to let anyone tell me how to believe or try to change who I am.
I will instead choose to respect everyone's beliefs and understand that not everyone is able to realize that what is "right" is different for each person.

I'm not really sure if that fits in, but it's something that I stand for.

I refuse to complain about the circumstances life has dealt me.
I will instead choose to look at every circumstance that life brings me as a way to learn and grow in order to become a stronger person.
People are not limited by the circumstance that they are born in. They are limited by the size of their dreams. Show them that their dreams can have no limits and in turn their accomplishments can be limitless.

I refuse to allow myself to judge others based solely on their appearance!

I refuse to be part of the problem
I will instead try to be part of the solution.

I refuse to let the things that I can not change control me, instead I will rise and view each experience as a lesson to be learned

I WILL NEVER AGAIN let anyone convince me to grow hair on my head.
If they don't like it, there is the door, the road has two lanes, one coming to and your welcome to stay, one leaving and I don't see an anchor attached to your ass if you don't like my looks.  Its your problem, not mine.

I need to print that out for my wife. She was begging me to grow my hair back again over the weekend.
