Most times, we give away our love freely to people around us. Sometimes even to the undeserving ones who only use us for their own benefit and take us for granted.

You have so much love to give, but most often you forget to give love to yourself. And the one person who can benefit from your unconditional love and who will always be there for you through thick and thin is the person staring back at you in the mirror.

Give yourself some love. You Definitely deserve it. If only for the reason that self-love is the foundation for all the love that flows from your heart to others.

Self-love is essentially filling your cup so you can give more away. Whether it is love for your family, close friends, or even a beloved pet, that deep appreciation and regard stem from self-love.

Although practicing love is not always easy, especially with all of life’s challenges and obstacles that can undermine your belief in yourself and cause you to doubt your abilities.

However, it is especially during these difficult and challenging times that you need to show yourself some love. That despite the setbacks and life not agreeing with you at the moment, you still have yourself.

Self-love will help you in pushing yourself back up and provide you with the self-esteem you need to get back on track.

And whenever you find yourself flagging, you can always rely on the power of words to lift your spirits up. Words of encouragement, positivity, and inspiration have a way of helping you build a stronger relationship with the person who always has your best interests at heart: yourself.

Reading self-love quotes helps to remind yourself of your worth and the importance of taking care of yourself.

That being said, browse through our collection of the 50 best self-love quotes and find powerful quotes that will resonate with you, to help you improve your relationships with yourself and others.
