Self-esteem Quotes
(35+ quotes)

Self-esteem quotes are all about building self-confidence. Loving ourselves first is required before we can participate in a healthy relationship with someone else. Louise Hay reminds us, 

“The bottom line for everyone is ‘I’m not good enough.’ It’s only a thought, and a thought can be changed.” Stop looking for approval from outside sources and start approving of your self. Feel the truth of Buddha’s words, “You can search the entire universe, and not find a single being more worthy of love than you.”

Janet Robinson reminds us, "Every thought we have, every decision we make, every action we take and every result we get is directly related to how we feel about ourselves."
