Loving and respecting yourself isn’t always easy, but it’s the best decision you can make. In the past if someone asked me if I loved myself, I’d say “of course I do!” Now, as I’ve examined my relationship with myself I realized I frequently put others before myself, value the opinions of others above my own, and treat my body more like trash than a temple. We should all practice loving ourselves a little more. Here’s a little self-love inspiration.
“Stop worrying if other people like you. Do you like you?”
“Love yourself enough to take the actions required for your happiness … Enough to cut yourself free from the drama-filled past …Enough to set a high standard for relationships …Enough to feed your body and your mind in a healthy manner …Enough to forgive yourself …Enough to move on.”
“Be so completely yourself that everyone else feels safe to be themselves too.”
“Documents the moment you feel most in love with yourself- what you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing. Recreate and repeat.” Warsan Shire
“Get out of the habit if thinking you’re beautiful ‘in spite of,’ and get into the habit of thinking you’re beautiful ‘because of.’
“You teach people how to teach you by what you allow, what you reinforce, and what you stop.”-Tony Gaskins
“It’s not who you are that holds you back. It’s who you think you are.”-Denis Waitley
