It’s natural to have a bad day, to experience a little self-doubt and have your confidence shaken. The societal pressure to look and essentially be perfect is high, and nearly all of us feel it—celebrities celebrity quotes. Because we can never have enough reminders to love ourselves just as we are, below are some of the best celebrity quotes about self love ever uttered. Your self-worth is determined by you.
You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are. Life is too short, and I’m Italian. I’d much rather eat pasta and drink wine than be a size 0. I remind myself to be kind to myself, and as slightly ridiculous as it may sound, to treat myself in the same gentle way I’d want to treat a daughter of mine. I’m very much OK with it.
I don’t think artists are ever the ones who have the problem with their weight, it is other people. Being comfortable in your own skin is one of the most important things to achieve. Where do you get your confidence? I think people are well meaning, but it’s pretty insulting. You Mindy Kaling, have all the trappings of a very marginalized person. You’re not skinny, you’re not white, you’re a woman.
Why on earth would you feel like you’re worth anything? I’m not going to conform, and hurt myself, and do something crazy to be a size two. I love my body, and I would never change anything about it. I’m not asking you to like my body. I’m just asking you to let me be me.
Being pregnant finally helped me understand what my true relationship was with my body—meaning that it wasn’t put on this earth to look good in a swimsuit. Look, I can carry a baby! I’m gaining weight right, everything’s going well. And I’ve had that relationship ever since. One day, I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and and what other people thought about my body.
