144 Self Worth Quotes | You Are Enough!

Make no mistake, without it we are nothing! Our self-worth should not be mistaken for achievements or successes, it should be there within you, me, everyone. Loving, respecting yourself and feeling that internal sense that you’re good enough and deserve love and belonging. No matter how young or old, never accept anyone putting you down or bad-mouthing you, as you are priceless. A great number of famous people have worked and continue to work hard on it themselves, as they too see eye to eye in believing in ourselves.

From now on when one compliments you, welcome it and simply say “thank you” instead of “really?” or “no way!” – because you believe it. Here you will find an incredible selection of quotes that men and women, authors, poets, hosts and more, have expressed in wisdom and sincerity of the importance of ones value. With these quotes you can be inspired, motivated and most of all find that special person you are, and share them with friends and loved ones. No one should need any validation.
