Positive Affirmations For Tired Dads

January 24, 2022

Sharing some positive affirmations to my fellow dads who might be feeling a little tired or overwhelmed lately.

We normally hear stories about tired and stressed out moms but it’s not often that we hear dads complain about these things. As such, people might think that dads are just cool and may even be misconstrued as indifferent at times. However, that’s far from the truth and, most of the time, dads are plagued with worries and mental health issues.

Positive Affirmations For Tired Dads

    Dads do get tired, too, but people will not hear them baring their feelings. That’s because most dads still prefer to put up a strong façade. Even in this modern day and age, dads are still expected to remain as strong as a rock, the pillar of the home.

    Just the same, we have our own way of coping. Most dads are able to hurdle the stress and day to day challenges that come their way and still muster the energy to take care of their family.

    Admittedly though, there are times when things get a little too much. I’m sure you’ve been through days when challenges just keep on coming with no sign of mellowing down anytime soon. In moments like this, it’s good to stop for a while and make positive affirmations.

    You’ll realize that things will become a little bearable and may even begin to get better soon. Here are some of the things that you can do:

    Forgive yourself

    Some dads can be perfectionists and become too hard on themselves when they commit mistakes, whether at home or at work. I know because I also am on a lot of occasions. Sometimes, I would even nitpick and make an issue out of small things.

    When all that we look at are our mistakes, our minds can become too cloudy and we may eventually begin to tell ourselves that we are such failures. Of course, that’s not good because it can lead to even bigger disasters, so to speak.

    So, learn to forgive yourself for committing that mistake, for losing your temper, or for being emotional. After all, you’re just as human as anybody else and you deserve that second chance (or more).

    You’re doing just fine

    When I was just a new dad, I had the tendency to compare myself with other parents. I still do, really. It’s just that I realized later on that there’s no point in comparing myself with other parents. After all, I don’t even know what they’re going through. Thus, I just do what I think is right and I’ve learned to trust my instincts.

    As long as something isn’t bad for my kids, then that’s totally fine. I don’t have to be like other parents and my kids don’t have to be similar to other children.

    You're enough

    I sometimes feel that I’m not good enough. When things become too much, I feel that I’m not able to give enough for my family – be it time, money, or your own skills. I begin telling myself that I’m not good enough and, at times, come to a point that I wish I were somebody else or give up altogether.

    When that happens, I stop and try to put things into perspective. Take it slow and focus on one task or issue at a time. Later on, the feeling of being overwhelmed will go away. You will gradually regain confidence and feel that your efforts are enough.

    You're worthy of respect

    Whoever you are and whatever you do, remember that you deserve all the respect in the world. Start by being respectful to yourself.

    It’s okay to rest

    In the end of it all, we are just humans and we grow weary of the many things that go around us. The bills, the mortgage, and keeping your family together – these all take its toll on us. Allow yourself time to rest and recuperate because, well, you deserve it.

    Prayer is powerful

    Don’t forget your faith and spirituality. Pray and lift your worries to God. It doesn’t have to be the usual prayer that we memorize and repeatedly recite. I think personal prayers and “conversations with God” are even more powerful and effective.


    These are just a few of the positive affirmations for dads that I can think of. Honestly, I still don’t feel 100% fine but I get by. I’m still irritable on many occasions but I do try to manage it. I try to see the good in things even if it’s hard. I’m also beginning to pray a lot again and I can feel that it’s helping me get through.
