Well, positive affirmations that center around love can work in the same way. By Rebecca Strong.

Say it aloud to yourself and you can begin to change your negative thinking. Stop ruminating over the failure. Do you find that you cannot stop thinking about what happened, replaying it over and over in your head?

Getting it out of your head and down on paper can give you some relief from rumination and help reveal any underlying fears.
Mindful meditation helps you stop worrying about what happened in the past and focus on the here and now, and you can start asking yourself: what can I do differently today? Part 2 Quiz What is an example of "rumination"? I won't get this opportunity again.
Part 3 of Address the cause of the failure. What happened to throw your goal off track? Could it have been prevented? Think about possible solutions you could have put into action, and what their consequences would have been. Were your initial expectations unrealistic? Try discussing your expectations with loved ones and teammates to measure their realism.
If you failed to get an expected promotion at work, ask for a meeting with your supervisor to discuss where you got off track. Wait until you have moved past the first, most emotional stages of disappointment. Come in with some idea of where you may have failed, and with questions for future improvement.
If you have failed to find the sort of job you had hoped to find, try reading the online profiles of people who have that job. Do they have a different educational background than you have? More years of experience? Did they enter the workforce at a different time?
If you were disappointed in love, ask yourself if you were putting unusual pressure or expectations on your romantic partner. Did you understand how they were feeling throughout the relationship?
