Quotes on Self-love

~ Brittany Josephina

~ Kim McMilllen

“When we give ourselves compassion, we are opening our hearts in a way that can transform our lives.”

“Accept yourself. Love yourself as you are. Your finest work, your best movements, your joy, peace, and healing comes when you love yourself. You give a great gift to the world when you do that.

“As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first, I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.
~ Charlie Chaplin

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
~ John Lennon

“And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.”
~ John Steinbeck

“Treat yourself the way you want others to treat you. Accept yourself! Insecurity is what’s ugly, not you. Be you, just the way you are, in the beautiful way only you know how. The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others. You must love who you are or no one else will either. And when you are truly comfortable in your own skin, not everyone will like you, but you won’t care about it one bit.”
~ Marc Chernoff

“It’s a process of getting smarter about what helps and what hurts; what de-escalates suffering and what escalates it; what increases happiness and what obscures it. It is about loving yourself so much that you don’t want to make yourself suffer anymore.”
~ unknown

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”

“In every smile there is beauty. In every heart there is love. In every mind there is wisdom. In every human being there is a soul, there is life, there is worth, and there is the ability to see all these things in everyone, including one’s self.”
~ Marc Chernoff

“Happiness turned to me and said – “it is time. It is time to forgive yourself for all the things you did not become. It is time to exonerate yourself for all of the people you couldn’t save, for all of the fragile hearts you fumbled with in the dark of your confusion. It is time, child, to accept that you do not have to be who you were a year ago, that you do not have to want the same things. Above all else, it is time to believe with reckless abandon, that you are worthy of me, for I have been waiting for years.”
~ Bianca Sparacino

“Sweetheart, marry your goals, remain committed to success, be loyal to you dreams, it’s ok to choose yourself.”

“If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.”
~ Marvin Gaye

“Sometimes we feel empty; we feel a vacuum, a great lack of something. We don’t know the cause; it’s very vague, but that feeling of being empty inside is very strong. We expect and hope for something much better so we’ll feel less alone, less empty. The desire to understand ourselves and to understand life is a deep thirst. There’s also the deep thirst to be loved and to love. We are ready to love and be loved. It’s very natural. But because we feel empty, we try to find an object of our love. Sometimes we haven’t had the time to understand ourselves, yet we’ve already found the object of our love. When we realize that all our hopes and expectations, of course, can’t be fulfilled by that person, we continue to feel empty.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

“If you’re still looking for that one person who can change your life, take look in the mirror.”
~ Roman Price

“Love is my gift to the world. I fill myself with love, and I send that love out into the world. How others treat me is their path; how I react is mine.”
~ Wayne Dyer

“You have to love yourself because no amount of love from others is sufficient to fill the yearning that your soul requires from you.”
~ Dodinsky

“You’ve been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”
~ Louise Hay

“People always think that the most painful thing in life is losing the one you value. The truth is, the most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of valuing someone too much and forgetting that you are special too.”
~ Ernest Hemingway
