Five additional quotes about self-love and self-respect:
“When you adopt the view that there is nothing that exists that is not part of you, that there is no one who exists who is not part of you, that any judgment you make is self-judgment, that any criticism you level is self-criticism, you will wisely extend to yourself an unconditional love that will be the light of the world.”
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
Howard Washington Thurman
“It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self-love deficit.”
“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.”
“Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
My thoughts on these quotes
Self-love and self-respect are very important for our healthy development and healthy personality. I recently watched a documentary where there was talk that an introverted person with a lack of self-love and self-esteem can be very dangerous, can be self-destructive, or destructive to others. This has inspired me to prepare famous quotes on the topic of self-love and self-esteem for this coming week. When I was looking for suitable quotes, there were again so many that I liked that there were too many for just seven days. So I add 5 more quotes next to it. Again, it’s hard to say which one is my favorite or which one I would specifically highlight because I like them all. Wayne Dyer said very well in his own words, “Loving starts with the self.” Fred Rogers’s quote is also great. Being here as a person has a multiplier effect on everyone and everything around us, and we are not aware of that in most cases. Louise L. Hay’s Sunday advice is also great. Do you agree?
These are some of my thoughts on these quotes. I will be happy if you share your thoughts with me in the comments.
