5 Self-Love Quotes To Embrace Your True Self
It’s not until we are true to ourselves that we can find peace and happiness. Getting to know the true you and showing yourself love and kindness is a journey worth taking.
1. This is one of my favorite self-love quotes of all time.
“I don’t care about being “normal” getting approval or fitting in with the crowd. I do my own thing and follow my own path. Some people like me, some don’t, and I’m okay with that.” — Lori Deschene
When we learn to love ourselves and understand what our values are, we learn how to say no to the things in life that don’t align with who we are, and we walk into a life that feels like home.
2. This is one of those quotes to live by; it reminds us that saying no is the first step to self-love.
“No is a complete sentence.” — Anne Lamott
When we know who we are and what matters most to us, saying no becomes easy. We recognize that with every “no” we are saying “yes” to something else. Saying “no” to busyness or toxicity means saying “yes” to calm and peace.
3. Powerful deep quotes like this give us permission to be unapologetically authentic.
“It’s not your responsibility to want the life that others want for you.” — Colin Wright
The thing about self-love is that no one else can do it for you. You are the only one who can love yourself well and you are the only one who knows your deepest desires. Don’t create a life that you think you should live, create a life that reflects who you are, no matter how different it is from the norm.
4. Change is good and today is a new day. Quotes like this remind us that it’s never too late to start loving yourself.
“It is never too late to be what you might have been. — George Eliot
Whether you’re 35 or 85, it’s not too late to look inward and ask yourself what you need and to start making changes toward a life that you will love.
5. The best motivational quotes allow for grace and rest.
“Sometimes all that matters is that you’re still trying. Don’t quit. Rest when you need to but don’t quit.”
Self-love is hard sometimes. We find ourselves falling into old patterns or letting other people’s opinions matter more than our own. Keep coming back to your deepest values and reminding yourself that you are worth fighting for. When you forget, give yourself grace. Reset and try again.
BONUS: Knowing when to slow down is one of the best lessons learned in life.
Today I just want a worn book, a warm blanket and some peace and quiet.”
We all need days to recharge and let the quietness wash over us occasionally. It’s in those moments of quiet that we get to hear our own voice. Self-love means we make time to listen to our needs and become the rapt audience for our own voice.
