Self love quotes and  quotes about being self confident with good self esteem can be really helpful and looks good as your phones screen saver. But, it won’t do much of a change if you don’t know how to achieve what the quote says. But you and I are going to change that today! Underneath every quote, I will give you a step by step guide with self esteem and self confidence building exercises on how to achieve what the quote says. Let’s do this!

Self love quotes #1. Be real, not perfect

This self love quote is about believing that you’re enough just the way you are.

You were born unique and one of a kind. But then as life happened, you started believe that you needed to be the best to be good enough.

Believing that you need to be perfect will hurt your self esteem and isn’t an act of self love.

To live this quote you need courage to be ‘real’ and love yourself for everything you are. I’ve written a more in depth blog post about building self-confidence and believing that you’re enough, you can read it here. 

A quick self esteem building exercise:

Every time the voice inside your head tells you that you need to change in order to be enough, recognize that it isn’t true. Then replace it with a kind and loving voice.

Self love quotes #2. I can/’t

This self confidence quote is about beliving in yourself by cutting out negative words like ‘can’t’ so it becomes ‘can’ instead.

Choosing to say ‘I can’ instead of ‘I can’t’ is very powerful and it will help you overcome self doubt and boost your self confidence.

 If you’re insecure sometimes creating a positive mantra can help you manifest the self-confidence you want in your life. I’ve written a blog post on creating your personal mantra here.

 A quick self confidence building exercise: 

Every time you doubt yourself or your ability to do something, I want you to tell yourself “I can to this. I believe in yourself”.

Self love quotes #3 Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket

This quote is about not giving someone else the power to control your happiness. This happens when you’re not aware of your own needs and therefore tries to have someone else meet your need for you. 

But no one can fill your needs but yourself! 

If you want to carry the key to your own happiness, you need raise your self awarness. You can do this through yoga, meditation, mindfulness etc. 

I recommend trying Yoga with Adriene.

I practice her yoga myself and it’s so good! She’s such a kind soul and a great yoga teacher! 

A quick self confidence exercise: 

Go to youtube and find a quick meditation exercises or visit Adriene’s website and try out one of her yoga classes. 

Self love quotes #4 Love yourself

This love yourself quote kinda speaks for it self, don’t ya think?

If you want to love yourself you need to give up the concern you have about what other’s might think of you. When you constantly try to strive for other peoples approval instead of being true to who you are. You indirectly tell yourself that you’re not good enough and that isn’t an act of self love.

I’ve written a post on how to believe that you’re good enough just the way you are. You can read it here.

A quick self love exercise: 

When you worry about someone else opinion of you, I want you to consider if they actually told you this or if it’s all in your head. Because most of the time you make things up in your head that no one actually told you. So it’s important to become aware if you created this falls story about yourself. 

Self love quotes #5 Be proud of yourself

Quotes about self love doesn’t need to have ‘Love’ in them. This quote is about being proud of yourself. This is something that can easily get lost in todays modern life because it’s easy to get caught up comparing yourself to others! When this happens, you easily forget all of the great things you’ve accomplished in your life. 

If you want to be better at being proud of yourself, you need to spend time recognizing your wins in life! No win is too small. Heck you could be proud of yourself for eating a piece of fruit! 

A quick self love exercise:

Every night, write down 3 things you did that day that you’re proud of. You can also make a list of everything you’ve done in your life that you are proud of. 

Self-love quotes #6 Be the best version of you


This quote I’m sure you’ve heard many times. Be the best version of you!

And I do think it’s a great love yourself quote, however, when I read it I get the vibe that who you are right now isn’t the best version of you and I disagree with that.

You are enough just the way you are in this moment. You don’t need to be more or less.

But I think this quote is a great opportunity to reflect upon if you’re being true to yourself in your life and live in alignment with your values.

A quick self-love exercise: 

Write down all of your values in life and what you want to achieve. 

Now compare your values and what you want with the life you have now. Does it align with your truth? 

This way I believe you can become “The best version of yourself”. But living a life that you truely want to live!  

Self-love quotes #7 Hey! You’re awesome!

How often do you tell yourself that you’re awesome? Let me guess, never? That’s such a shame because you ARE awesome! And I don’t think you can tell yourself with enough. 

When you want to start loving yourself and building self-esteem, acknowledging yourself is so important. If you don’t spend time telling yourself positive words, then the negative self-talk will take over,  and that will ruin your self-esteem. 

A quick self-love exercise:

Choose one positive sentence where you acknowledge yourself. It could be telling yourself ‘Hey! You’re awesome.” every time you look at yourself in the mirror. Or whenever you go somewhere and feel insecure then remind yourself how awesome you are by repeating in your mind ‘Hey! You’re awesome”. 


Self-love quotes #8 Face the things you fear

This is a good self-love quote! Face the things you fear. If the word fear freaks you out, remember that fear can be many things. It can be the fear of tasting something you’ve never tasted before or the fear of dying. But one thing is true, if you want to grow in life you need to do something you’ve never done before and that can be scary!

Have you ever admired someone for doing something you’d never dare do and thought to yourself ‘Wow that person is really brave!’? 

I don’t think it’s brave to do something you’re not afraid to do. I think it’s brave doing something despite how scared you are. That to me is a true hero. 

A quick self-love exercise: 

Think of one thing in your life that you’re afraid to do. Ask yourself ‘why am I scared of this? What am I afraid might happen if I do this?’ And the rate how realistic your fear is. Often fear is all in your head and not realistic. So if you rate it with realistically, it might not be as scary as you thought.
