Recovery: Show Yourself Some Love This Valentine's Day

It's Valentine's Day. What better way to celebrate than showing yourself a little self-love and appreciation?

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Lucille Ball

Don't forget to love yourself.
Soren Kierkegaard

You have to be able to love yourself because that's when things fall into place.
Vanessa Hudgens

Love brings you face to face with yourself. It`s impossible to love others if you don’t love yourself.
John Pierrkos

Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.
Steve Maraboli

Stop trying to fix yourself; you're NOT broken! You are perfectly imperfect and powerful beyond measure.
Hussein Nishah

You cannot be lonely if you like the person you`re alone with.
Wayne Dyer

I think every girl needs to love herself, regardless of anything. Like if you're having a bad day, if you don't like your hair, if you don't have the best family situation, whatever, you have to love yourself and you can't do anything until you love yourself first.
Julianne Hough

It`s not your job to like me... it`s mine.
Byron Katie

People often say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.
Salma Hayek

If you don't love yourself, you can't love anybody else. And I think as women we really forget that. Jennifer Lopez

If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can love other people so much better. And that makes you so happy.
Kristin Chenoweth

Let today be the day you love yourself enough to no longer just dream of a better life; let it be the day you act upon it.
Steve Maraboli

Self-love, my liege, is not so vile a sin, as self-neglecting.
William Shakespeare

To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don't wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now.
Alan Cohen

To help yourself, you must be yourself. Be the best that you can be. When you make a mistake, learn from it, pick yourself up and move on.
Dave Pelzer

The love you seek is seeking you at this moment.
Deepak Chopra

This is such a great post - There are so many ways we can show love to ourselves - I especially love the quote from Byron Katie. People so often go searching for love from others when truly, the greatest amount of love should come from within.
Thank you for this wonderful Valentine's Day Post.
