It All Starts With You: 11 Radical Self Love Quotes | The Health Sessions

When you think about it, the only constant in your life is you. And yet, many of us struggle to accept – let alone love – ourselves for who we truly are, flaws and quirks included.

Too often, we compare ourselves to others, feeling that we don’t measure up. What the critical voices in our head tend to forget, is that we’re only seeing the highlight reel of other people, while our own journeys are filled with ups and downs. So we beat ourselves up over the mistakes we make. Even when we do succeed, we feel like it’s more a matter of luck than the result of our talents, skills and hard work.

Self love can be especially hard to practice when you have a chronic illness. Because how do you love the parts of your body that hurt, let you down and prevent you from living a ‘normal’ life?

And still, self love has a big impact on your quality of life. Self love helps you to set healthy boundaries, allow supportive people in your life only and practice self-care. When you respect your own wants and needs, you’re more likely to make decisions that nourish instead of deplete you. That’s why Gala Darling states that loving yourself is a revolutionary act.
