In a world where we are so focused on how we look and what we do, we often undermine our own self-worth and image. The reality is that you are the most important in your life because you have the power to control it all, and here are several quotes to remind you just how special you are and why you need to appreciate every part of yourself.

5. “Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish – it makes you indestructible.” —Anonymous

Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.” —C. Joybell C.

11. “Confidence is knowing who you are and not changing it a bit because of someone’s version of reality is not your reality.” —Shannon L. Alder

16. “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” —Buddha

17. “A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.” —Mark Twain

18. “When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.” —Jean Shinoda Bolen

Giphy

19. “A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.” —Andrew Matthews

20. “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” —Howard Washington Thurman

21. “Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” —William James

22. “You are very powerful, provided you know how powerful you are.” —Yogi Bhajan

Giphy

These are just a few quotes to think about the next time you put yourself down or are harsh to yourself. We all do it, and it's natural. But it's also important to be kind and gentle to yourself especially when the world feels most cruel.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.
