8 Quotes to Inspire Self-Love

8 Quotes to Inspire Self-Love

We know self-love is not for everyone. To be honest we never really liked the term… we prefer self-kindness, self-compassion, self-respect. Really, all these terms are the same as self-love BUT for some reason (especially at the beginning, before Yoga and Pilates) we thought it was a little sickening. This was most likely to do with our years of continuous self-criticism and self-loathing.

We’ve come a long way, and now do believe we are worthy of our own love (duh! Of course)… but it took time, a little self-reflection and a lot of learning and un-learning. 

And this is why we chose Self-Love as the monthly theme inside the MerryBody Online Studio.

If self-love is not your thing, take a read of these quotes to inspire self-love or call it self-respect if that feels better.
