Quotes by Brene Brown:
Owning our story and loving ourselves through the process is the bravest thing we'll ever do.

I forgive my mind for believing that what was is what always had to be.
Quotes by Dr. Maya Angelou
Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you cannot practice any other virtue consistently.
You forgive yourself for every failure because you tried to do the right thing. God knows that and
you know it.
You can't forgive without loving. And I don't mean sentimentality; I don't mean mush. I mean enough courage to stand out and say "I forgive. I'm finished with it."
When people show you who they are, believe them.
When you know better, you do better.
One of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself is to forgive.
Quotes by Dr. Brian Weiss:
When you feel sad or worried, remember your true nature: You are a beautiful, immortal, resplendent soul. You are always loved. You are never alone.
Although we may not be biologically related, although blood may be thicker than water, spirit is thicker than blood.
Quotes by Louise Hay
Loving the self begins with never ever criticizing ourselves for anything.
When we really love and accept and approve of ourselves exactly as we are, then everything in life works.
Quotes by Deepak Chopra
The most creative act you will ever undertake is the act of creating yourself.
What others think of me is none of my business.
