10 Important Quotes to Inspire Self-Love

Loving yourself, or to be “self-first” as I call it, is the first step toward having a loving and healthy romantic relationship. That’s because if you don’t love yourself, you don’t know your worth. If you don’t realize you are worthy of amazing things, of love and respect, you fall for anything and accept anyone that enters your life. This lack of self-love and awareness is the catalyst to negative relationship patterns. You will learn the same lessons, suffering heartache after heartache, until you love yourself and choose better.

And you can only choose better if you feel you deserve better.

Take a moment to feel worthy. Look in the mirror and say to yourself, “I am not selfish; I am self-first.” This is my favorite thing to say. Perhaps because it is my brand’s motto. Regardless, the message is clear.

We have to love ourselves, know who we are, and what we desire and need in love and life, or we will settle for anything.

To help you along the way, here are 10 amazing quotes to remind you why you should love yourself a little more.
