The Greatest Inspirational
Self-Esteem Quotes

This page is a collection of inspirational self-esteem quotes. Self-esteem is a deep feeling you have about yourself and your value as a human being.

Your level of self-worth is your choice. You decide how worthy you are, and it doesn't depend on anyone else. That's why it's called self-esteem and not others-esteem.

The most important opinion is the opinion you have of yourself. Spend time holding yourself in the highest regards. The love you show yourself or deny yourself is the love you will receive from those around you.

Here's 5 things you can do right now to lift your self esteem and feel better: stand up tall, breath deeply, appreciate what you have, recall past successes, and give genuine compliments to others.

Enjoy this page of inspirational self-esteem quotes and allow their power to permeate your being.
