20+ Maya Angelou Quotes About Self-Love

Dr. Maya Angelou would have been 90 years old on April 4th, if she were still alive today. One way in which her legacy lives on today is through her incredible words of wisdom.

Dr. Maya Angelou reminded us all to be loving and kind to each other, but also to ourselves.

These Maya Angelou quotes about self-love remind us that we are enough.

I have long struggled with self-love. I strive, each day, to be kinder to myself, and to value my worth. And I know I’m not alone. Countless others struggle with this very same issue, but I want to leave you with this:

There is only one of you in this world, and we need you.

You are perfect in your own way.  You are worthy of your love.

Let’s promise each other to be a little bit kinder to ourselves today, and each day to come.

Here are some of my favourite Dr. Maya Angelou quotes about self-love and self-worth. Spread the love by pinning your fave!
