Quotes about Loving Yourself

So why am I writing a post on quotes about loving yourself on SpaFromScratch.com. If you checked out our other posts, you will see that we are all about trying to make the lives of our readers healthy and happy. That brings me back to the reason for this post. Many people believe loving yourself means being selfish or narcissistic. However, that is a misconception and many great philosophers and teachers attest to that fact. Here’s what they have to say:

When you think about loving yourself, what feelings does that invoke? Do you feel like you’re being selfish, egocentric or narcissistic? If so, I have a thought for you to ponder. Think about the miracle of nature that brought you into being. You started out as a single cell. The code that ultimately created you had to work seamlessly to create the ultimate being. You. Think about what had to happen to during this process. It’s mind blowing.

The reality is you deserve no less love from you than anyone else deserves. The narcissist does not truly love anyone. He or she operates from an ego base which is prone to be all about the Me. Sometimes that’s out of ignorance and at other times from mental illness. In either event, that is not love.

From the little spider that spins a gossamer web in the corner of a cabinet to the billions of stars that light the night sky there is wonder.  You are an inseparable part of that wonder. We all are. So, why wouldn’t you love yourself?

If you want to see more quotes about loving yourself, read some of the excellent books that address the subject. One of my favorites is the work of Erich Fromm. I also read Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, and a little known author Vernon Howard.

Now go have fun and relax.
