Quotes About Body Image and Self Esteem

People with low self-esteem often bank on how they are doing in the present to determine how they feel about themselves. They sometimes rely on positive external validation to counteract the negative feelings and thoughts that seem to overwhelm them whenever they sense they have done something wrong.

I have learnt that there is nothing more important than having a healthy self esteem and loving yourself. The lack of these cause you to miss out on so many opportunities. And I am speaking from experience.

I have searched the internet for the best moral boosters. I do believe these quotes will give you that needed nudge to having a good self esteem.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

  • King David

“You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.”

  • Amy Bloom

“Healthy body image is not something that you’re going to learn from fashion magazines.”

  • Erin Heatherton

“It’s my choice to be beautiful. It’s my choice to be ugly. And it’s my choice to decided what those words actually mean.”

“Healthy emotions come in all sizes. Healthy minds come in all sizes. And healthy bodies come in all sizes.”

“To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself.”

  • Simone de Beauvoir
