Self-Esteem and Self-Love Quotes

Some things may be equally essential but nothing is more important than a healthy sense of self-esteem and loving yourself.

Why?

In my experience, three of the most important reasons are:

1. Life becomes simpler and lighter.

When you love yourself more then things simply become lighter and easier.

You won’t overthink and make mountains out of molehills (or out of plain air) as you used to. Or beat yourself up or drag yourself down over mistakes or temporary setbacks.

2. You’ll have more inner stability and self-sabotage less. 

When your opinion of yourself goes up then you’ll stop trying to get so much validation and attention from other people.

You become less needy and find an inner stability and strength even when your world might be negative or uncertain at times.

The increasing self-esteem and self-love also makes you feel more deserving of good things in life and so you’ll self-sabotage less and go after what you deep down want with more motivation and focus than ever before.

3. You’ll be happier.

But instead of sharing my own thoughts and experiences like I usually do I’d like to take a different approach today.

I’d like to share 50 of the most inspiring, thought provoking and uplifting thoughts from the past 2400 years on getting to know yourself, raising your self-esteem and finding a self-love.
