Quotes About Self-Love – It’s Monday, and I don’t know about you, but I sometimes need a bit of a pick-me-up to start the week; a reminder that I am enough. When I’m in this state of mind, I search for inspiration and what better place to find it than a thought-provoking quote!
I know I’m not alone in this struggle. Self-love can have a negative connotation to it, and some associate self-love with selfishness. However, self-love is not that at all.
Self-love is about knowing your worth.
We are often our worst critics, and I know that many of us would never treat those we care about in the same ways we treat ourselves. As these quotes will teach us (and for some, remind us), we cannot truly love others, if we don’t first love ourselves.
Today’s post is meant to provide some self-love inspiration. I want to remind you that you are enough, you are worthy, you are YOU and that is exactly what the world needs.
