2. Quotes


No amount of self-improvement can make up for any lack of self-acceptance.

Robert Holden

Self-acceptance is my refusal to be in an adversarial relationship to myself.

Nathaniel Branden

The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself.

Mark Twain

You can succeed if nobody else believes it, but you will never succeed if you don’t believe in yourself.

William J. H. Boetcker

Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.

Marilyn Monroe

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.

Anna Quindlen

To be nobody but yourself in a world that’s doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting.

E. E. Cummings

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

Sharon Salzberg

Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.

Lao Tzu

It’s not your job to like me – it’s mine.

Byron Katie

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

Joseph Campbell

Believing in our hearts that who we are is enough is the key to a more satisfying and balanced life.

Ellen Sue Stern

I found in my research that the biggest reason people aren’t more self-compassionate is that they are afraid they’ll become self-indulgent. They believe self-criticism is what keeps them in line. Most people have gotten it wrong because our culture says being hard on yourself is the way to be.

Kristen Neff

Friendship with oneself is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.

Eleanor Roosevelt

I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.

Brene Brown
