Positive Self Love
Quotes To Live By

The way you treat yourself sets the standards for others - Sonya Friedman - Spiritual Quotes To Live By

These self love quotes give guidance for what most of us find the hardest thing to do, loving ourselves.

Just imagine what confident, happy people we would all be, if we were able to love ourselves, regardless of what we did, how we looked and felt, or what anyone else thought of us.

Nobody's perfect, it's okay to be just who you are right now and love that person. Even if you want to change many things about yourself, the first step is to accept yourself now, as you are.
