WHO I AM
Words I Tell Myself

Abrams BYR, September 2023
When the unkind voice gets loud and I feel down, I can tell myself:
I am enough. In this world, I matter.
We all have rough days: tough times when we feel down and an unkind voice in our mind can make us feel disappointed in ourselves. But we can talk back to that unkind voice; we can find the voice that will lift us up instead. We can tell ourselves words that are positive, supportive, and true.
From the New York Times bestselling team of Susan Verde and Peter Reynolds comes a heartfelt collection of positive affirmations: the perfect tool to complement and expand upon their beloved I Am series. A celebration of self-love and owning all the things that make us special, WHO I AM: WORDS I TELL MYSELF helps us to affirm that we are human, we are enough, and we are deserving of all kinds of love—especially our own.
