It's time you learn to love yourself and quotes about loving yourself might be just what you need to get you started. Learning to love yourself is difficult, it seems nearly impossible when you're constantly bombarded with advertisements that tell you what you should look like or when people make you feel that your grades and how fast you succeed determine your worth. You're told to be different but not too different. You're told a lot of things of what you should be like and what you should not be like. So, which of these do you listen to, which of these do you follow? Follow the ones that teach you to love yourself just as you are, and if there are no good ones that you can follow, become your own role-model. Hopefully these quotes about loving yourself will leave you feeling inspired ...
I stumbled upon this on Tumblr, and it's too breathtakingly beautiful and true that it had to be the first on the list of quotes about loving yourself.
2 Steve Furtick
Of course everyone else's successes will shine against what we consider to be our everyday lives - but so? Try to stop comparing, and if you can't, at least make a fair comparision.
3 Louise L. Hay
Don't wait for someone else's approval, validate yourself today. Why not give it a shot, right? After all, you've got nothing to lose.
4 Dr Seuss
Never be afraid to be who you are. Embrace your quirks, flaws and all. Without them, you're just another copy and paste. Without them, you wouldn't be YOU, and there's far more value in that then you realise.
5 Sonya Friedman
Show yourself a little respect if you want others to do the same. If you constantly belittle yourself, how do you expect others to treat you nice when you won't do the same for yourself?
6 August Wilson
We tend to look at our flaws as total negatives, when in reality, as this quote points out, it doesn't have to be that way. Take a long, hard look at them, forgive yourself for them, and move on!
7 Cindy Crawford
The people you see in magazines are airbrushed to perfection. They themselves don't look like the people you see in magazines. So, why are you trying to attain something that doesn't exist?
8 Marcia Hutchinson
If only you would show the kindness you show to others to yourself. Those awful remarks you whisper to yourself, those cruel words that are on constant replay in your mind ... would you show such hate to others?
9 Sidney J. Harris
This is so entirely true! The more comfortable you are in your own skin, the happier you'll be in the company of others.
10 J.K. Rowling
So many of you beat yourself up for not fitting into the media's distorted and ridiculous perception of beauty, but honey, fat or not, there are so many more things worth being repulsed over than being fat.
This include the barriers you've built up from loving yourself too, not just from others loving you. Once you've found those barriers, let self-love flood the gates and may a tsunami of love envelop you and fill the deepest and darkest cracks caused by all those years you spent hating yourself.
If you can love someone who is imperfect, if you can love someone despite their oddities, if you can see their worth despite their flaws, and if you can see the beauty in their imperfections, then why do you find it so difficult to love yourself?
