Self-love is the forgiveness, acceptance and respect for who you are deep down- all your beautiful and hideous parts included. When you love yourself, you take care of yourself, you honor your limitations, you listen to your needs and you respect your dreams enough to act on them.
“If you have the ability to love, love yourself first.” – Charles Bukowski
“It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self-love deficit.” – Eartha Kitt
“One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.” – Shannon L. Alder
“Lighten up on yourself. No one is perfect. Gently accept your humanness.” – Deborah Day
“Love yourself enough to set boundaries. Your time and energy are precious. You get to choose how you use it. You teach people how to treat you by deciding what you will and won’t accept.” – Anna Taylor
“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do.” – Brené Brown
“Self-love is an ocean and your heart is a vessel. Make it full, and any excess will spill over into the lives of the people you hold dear. But you must come first.” – Beau Taplin
“Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward. If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down.” – Roy T. Bennett
Self-love is not selfish; you cannot truly love another until you know how to love yourself.
“A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror.” – Ken Keyes
“Self respect, self worth and self love, all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value.” – Rob Liano
