I started looking up self-esteem quotes and thought I'd share with everyone the ones I found and liked. We can all use reminders every once in a while! =)
I was once afraid of people saying, "Who does she think she is?" Now I have the courage to stand and say, "This is who I am."
Seek respect mainly from thyself, for it comes first from within.
When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
~Jean Shinoda Bolen
You are much deeper, much broader, much brighter than any idea you could have of yourself.
Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.
We can never do the right thing as long as we are out to please someone else.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Yours is the energy that makes your world. There are no limitations to the self except those you believe in.
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
~Thich Nhat Hanh
Having a low opinion of yourself is not "modesty". It's self-destruction. Holding your uniqueness in high regard is not "egotism". It's a necessary precondition to happiness and success.
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it. Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it.
