23 Inspiring Self-Love Quotes


Because we could all use a reminder of how awesome we are.

Reading quotes has gotten me through a lot of hard times over the years. They offer optimism and hope and a little push when needed, to motivate you to take action. Here’s a list of my favorite self-love quotes! Let me know in the comments which one is your favorite! 🙂

1. You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.
2. As hard as it is, owning who you are and knowing what you want is the only sure path to affirmation.. I want women to know they can get out of any situation if the return to their core source of strength: themselves.
3. Love yourself enough to set boundaries. Your time and energy is 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.
4. In order to love who you are, you cannot hate the experiences that shaped you.
5. Find out who you are and be that person. That’s what your soul was put on this earth to do. Find that truth, live that truth, and everything else will come.
6. Don’t forget to tell yourself positive things daily! You must love yourself internally to glow externally.
7. I am my own experiment. I am my own work of art.
8. All you can do is be your best self. I’ve always felt that I had to be much more aware of how I present myself. I’m representing more than just me. I think every person should think that way.
9. Loving oneself isn’t hard when you understand who and what ‘yourself’ is. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It’s so beyond all of those things and it’s what gives life to everything about you. Your own self is such a treasure.
10. You are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.
11. She remembered who she was and the game changed.
12. Self-love is not a linear process. It’s not all flowers and affirmations. Some days will feel like crap. Let it be. Allow yourself to feel a wide range of emotions without judegment in those moments. Remind yourself that it won’t last forever.
13. Document the moments you feel most in love with yourself- what you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing. Recreate and repeat.
14. As I began to love myself I found that anquish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know this is “authenticity.”
15. You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.
16. When you realize your self worth, you’ll stop giving people discounts.
17. In a society that profits from your self-doubt, loving yourself is a rebellious act.
18. The fact that someone else loves you doesn’t rescue you from the project of loving yourself.
19. Be the love you never recieved.
20. Feeling beautiful has nothing to do with what you look like.
21. Be healthy and take care of yourself. But be happy with the beautiful things that make you ‘you’.
22. It’s okay to be different.
23. It is so important to take time for yourself and find clarity. The most important relationship is the one you have with yourself.

  1. marlagro – This is my personal journey with God. I have felt Him calling me for a long time to share where He takes me and what He does in my everyday life, ordinary and extraordinary. Why haven’t I written it before this? Fear? Time restraints? Lack of confidence? Pride? Didn’t know how or where to begin using todays technology? My SD card with my stories and pictures got corrupted? Maybe all of these. Probably my top answer is I am not a perfect writer as far as english grammar. After attempting to read “Painless Grammar” and “Get Wise, Mastering Writing Skills,” it seems one can get all wrapped up in being perfect with adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, etcetera and I thought “this isn’t me, I just want to write uninhibitedly.” This leads me to my next thought and the reason I am starting this blog. Writing has always been something that comes from my heart, not something that has to be perfect from a textbook. And this is how it is regarding my relationship with God. It comes from my heart. Last year, I would have asked my husband and friends to read this intro and my stories and give me validation whether to go forward or not. Today, my husband is golfing and has no idea of this newly created blog. And although it is tempting to ask a friend or two, my life is transforming into releasing any approval from others. Now, I know it isn’t up to me to decide where this blog will go in popularity. And it isn’t about my name and fame. This is Gods story about the life He has given me, that I am penning for Him. He may mean for it to touch one person, He may want it to reach thousands. I am just suppose to share my unique story, as He has made each one of us with unique stories. This blog may help you learn how to capture your own unique story. I hope so. Love Marla
