Loving yourself inspires happiness.

To fall in love with yourself is the first secret to happiness.


If you don’t love yourself, who will?

If you don’t love yourself, nobody will. Not only that, you won’t be good at loving anyone else. Loving starts with the self.


Self love is a journey and process.

“The journey isn’t about becoming a different person. It’s about loving who you are right now.”

Suzanne Heyn

Take note of what you do to make yourself feel loved.

“Document the moments you feel most in love with yourself – what you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing. Recreate and repeat.” 

Warsan Shire

Self love is the way you talk to yourself, your thoughts.

Be careful how you are talking to yourself because you are listening.

Lisa Hayes

Self love isn’t to do with your appearance, it’s an inside job. It’s your mindset.

“Self-love has very little to do with how you feel about your outer self. It’s about accepting all of yourself”


Loving yourself is a beautiful energy of vitality.

“Something inside you emerges…an innate, indwelling peace, stillness, aliveness. It is the unconditioned, who you are in your essence. It is what you had been looking for in the love object. It is yourself.”

Eckhart Tolle

Self love requires you believe in it.

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.”

C. JoyBell C

Self love is doing what is best for you.

“When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits – anything that kept me small.  My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.” 

Kim McMillen

Self love is taking care of yourself.

“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.”

Eleanor Brown

When you love yourself, you allow yourself to shine.

“You are as amazing as you let yourself be.”

Elizabeth Alraune

Love yourself as you do your friends and family.

“Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.” 

Les Brown

Your self love sets the standard for all your other relationships.

“how you love yourself is
how you teach others
to love you”

Rupi kapur

Loving yourself means to value your time.

Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.  


If you aren’t there yet, love yourself as someone who truly loves themself – how would they act?

“Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like your love yourself. Love yourself”

Tara Stiles

Self love isn’t about other people.

“It’s not your job to like me…it’s MINE!” 


Self love can’t be found in other people.

“It was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself I found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be whole.”


Self love isn’t being narcissistic or selfish.

“Loving yourself…does not mean being self-absorbed or narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion.”

Margo Anand

Self love is having boundaries.

“Love yourself enough to set boundaries. Your time and energy are precious. You get to choose how you use it. You teach people how to treat you by deciding what you will and won’t accept.”

Anna Taylor

You might as well love yourself as you always at least spend time with yourself.

“You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.”

Diane Von Furstenberg

Love yourself because of how strong you are, how resilient you are and how far you have come.

“Even when you felt you weren’t strong enough to survive, somehow you found the strength to survive anyway. What does that say about you, other than you are made from the blood of stars, with enough iron in your veins to make ten swords, and the same carbon that makes impossible to break diamonds?” 

Nikita Gill

When you love yourself, you radiate self love

“People who love themselves come across as very loving, generous and kind; they express their self-confidence through humility, forgiveness and inclusiveness.”

Sanaya Roman
