It’s easy to fall in love. But, it takes a lot of guts and patience to fall in love with yourself. We find ourselves struggling to accept and embrace who we are despite our imperfections and flaws. We tend to get insecure with the supermodels we see on TV or that bright guy in class who always gets a perfect score. The truth is, it’s not about being sexy or beautiful or smart. We are all created equal but yet we are unique in so many ways. It takes a lot of effort but you need to learn to embrace the inner you to be able to walk out confidently. With these love yourself quotes, we hope that you’ll start to have a sense of purpose.
Who Looks Outside, Dreams; Who Looks Inside, Awakes – Carl Gustav Jung
The more we look out far and reach for our dreams, the more we are further from realizing our true selves. While going out and working towards your goals is good, it would be better to start looking into yourself first. Look inside you and be enlightened with who you really are. If you know your true colors, it will be easier for you to take the road much more confidently because you know what you can do and what you can’t. Have a good grasp of your strengths and weaknesses.
What Lies Behind Us And What Lies Before Us Are Tiny Matters Compared To What Lies Within Us – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Oftentimes, we don’t know that beneath our mask lies a great and powerful person. We get jealous because our skin is not as soft as those celebrities on TV. We get insecure because we couldn’t answer that one problem in Math that everybody else can. We get demoralized because our job doesn’t pay as much as our friends who are the same age as us. Always remember that you may not beat people in these areas but you can be the best in another area. Discover the greater and more powerful you inside yourself. There are things that you can do and those strengths are just waiting for you to be discovered. When you finally have the knowledge and awareness about yourself, the jealousy and insecurities you feel would be like nothing.
I Celebrate Myself And Sing Myself – Walt Whitman
Nothing is more liberating than finally accepting yourself with your flaws and being happy and contented about it. So what if your fat? So what if you aren’t at the top of your class? You know how to sing or dance and you are happy doing it. All these love yourself quotes will serve as your inspiration. Those are things that you love and that’s all that matters. It all boils down to breaking free and just enjoying what life has to offer despite who you are.
