61 Self-love Quotes To Leave You Beside Yourself With Love

Self-love

It's easier to love other people than it is to love ourselves. A good example is the way we talk to ourselves. When we make mistakes, we tend to beat ourselves up a lot. We berate ourselves, focus on how much we mess up, and how we could have done things differently.

If someone else had done the same mistake, we would readily encourage them. Telling them how it's human to make mistakes, how there's always another chance to do things better, or how they didn't even mess up as bad as think they did.

We are our own worst critics. Remember, the things you tell yourself matter. They are processed by the subconscious and that's what you start believing. If you keep telling yourself that you are a failure who never gets anything right, then with time, that's how you will see yourself.

If you see yourself in a negative light, the world will view you the same way. Your life will follow that same pattern of negativity that began as small negative talk to yourself.

You show others how to love you and only you can love yourself as much as you need to be loved. Self-love means that you accept yourself wholly and appreciate the person you are with all your little flaws. When you love yourself, it shows. You will know your value, be confident, and radiate happiness from within.

If you don't love yourself wholly, start with small steps. Learn about yourself, what makes you tick and what leaves you sad. Focus on your strengths and spend time with people who love you right. Avoid making comparisons and always forgive yourself.

Our self-love quotes will remind you to be gentle with yourself and cut yourself some slack. You are perfect just as you are and over here, we totally appreciate you!

When you love yourself you will never need closure from any man. That doesn't mean you didn't love him, it simply means you love yourself enough to realize God has a better plan for you that doesn't involve one more conversation that will remind you of that person's lack of respect for you.

GONZALO: Good, yet remember whom thou hast aboard. BOATSWAIN: None that I more love than myself. You are a counsellor; if you can command these elements to silence, and work the peace of the present, we will not hand a rope more; use your authority: if you cannot, give thanks you have lived so long, and make yourself ready in your cabin for the mischance of the hour, if it so hap.

If you want to be confident, find out who you are by always believing the best about yourself. You do that by refusing to think or talk about the way you don’t want to be. You must see yourself exactly the way you want to be — not in the future, but now. Today (and every day moving forward), you want to think, walk, talk and act like the person you want to become.

The dismal fact is that self-respect has nothing to do with the approval of others — who are, after all, deceived easily enough; has nothing to do with reputation, which, as Rhett Butler told Scarlett O’Hara, is something people with courage can do without. To do without self-respect, on the other hand, is to be an unwilling audience of one to an interminable documentary that deals with one’s failings, both real and imagined, with fresh footage spliced in for every screening. There’s the glass you broke in anger, there’s the hurt on X’s face; watch now, this next scene, the night Y came back from Houston, see how you muff this one. To live without self-respect is to lie awake some night, beyond the reach of warm milk, the Phenobarbital, and the sleeping hand on the coverlet, counting up the sins of commissions and omission, the trusts betrayed, the promises subtly broken, the gifts irrevocably wasted through sloth or cowardice, or carelessness. However long we postpone it, we eventually lie down alone in that notoriously uncomfortable bed, the one we make ourselves. Whether or not we sleep in it depends, of course, on whether or not we respect ourselves.

They say that we should love ourselves first, before other people learn to love us, but it's not as easy as it seems. Sometimes, we need someone to accept us and love us first, then we would learn to see ourselves through that person's eyes and learn to love our-self.

I… There was a time when I stopped talking. Just like you. My reasons were a little bit different, but I think the feelings of being ashamed of myself and hating myself are the same. Here, it says to “like yourself.” What does that mean? Good things - how are you supposed to find them? I only know things that I hate about myself. Because that’s all I know, I hate myself. But even if you force yourself to find good things, it feels so empty. It doesn’t work that way. People like your teacher just don’t get it. I think when you hear someone say they like you, for the first time, then you can begin to like yourself. I think when someone accepts you, for the first time, you feel like you can forgive yourself a little. You can begin to face your fears with courage.

You know, April, when I told you that I was unhappy with you and the kids, that wasn’t true. I was never unhappy with you guys, I was unhappy with myself. I just wanted to be a success. It turns out I was a success the whole entire time. As a father, a husband, and a pretty goddamn good one at that. I just thought you should know.
