“If you do not respect your own wishes, no one else will. You will simply attract people who disrespect you as much as you do.”
Vironika Tugaleva

Eleanor Brownn
“Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.”
Eleanor Brownn

C. JoyBell C.
“Today I began to criticise myself and look at myself with a judgmental eye... but then instead of going all out in that direction, I stopped and I began to understand me. And then I began to be patient with me. And then I began to feel a softness in the middle of my chest. So then I concluded that I can understand and be patient with me, just like how I am always understanding and being patient with everyone else. Why? Because I deserve that, and more.”
C. JoyBell C.

Miya Yamanouchi
“My Dear Friend,
Don't ever allow yourself to forget how incredibly special you are, even for a single second. Without you, the world would not be as magnificent. Let yourself remember to love again, starting with you loving you.”
Miya Yamanouchi, Embrace Your Sexual Self: A Practical Guide for Women

Vironika Tugaleva
“Self-love is not the process of ignoring things, paying attention to fewer flaws or forcing yourself to look away from the parts of you that you perceive as ugly or unwanted. Self-love is the process of expanding your awareness, of seeing those flaws and imperfections alongside the incredible potential of the universe flowing within you, alongside the eternal truth of life flowing within your veins in each second, alongside the flickers of creativity and opportunity present within each moment of your existence. Like this, the imperfections persist, but only as lovable quirks, like a bad doorknob on the front door of a cottage in paradise, like a few thorns on a beautiful rose, like a cloud in a sunset. Like this, what was once unwanted becomes essential, memorable, humbling.”
Vironika Tugaleva

Eleanor Brownn
“You only have one life to live. Make sure it's yours.”
Eleanor Brownn

“Letting go may sound so simple, but rarely is it a one-time thing. Just keep letting go, until one day it's gone for good.”
Eleanor Brownn

Eleanor Brownn
“The definition of success in life has many different meanings. Don't compare your journey to the journey of others. Only you know where the journey began and how very far you have come.”
Eleanor Brownn

Miya Yamanouchi
“Prioritise self-care & incorporate a MINIMUM of 60 mins 'ME TIME' into your daily routine.
YES THERE ARE enough hours in the day.
NO EXCUSES.”

Lucille Zimmerman
“Taking good care of yourself means the people in your life receive the best of you rather than what is left of you.”
Lucille Zimmerman

Miya Yamanouchi
“Practise really seeing yourself in the mirror. This is NOT about examining yourself. This is about you looking beyond your external image to connect with your soul. Look upon yourself with complete appreciation and acceptance. You are so beautiful.”
Miya Yamanouchi, Embrace Your Sexual Self: A Practical Guide for Women

Anatole France
“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us
is a part of ourselves. We must die to one life before we can enter another”
Anatole France

“If one is cruel to himself, how can we expect him to be compassionate with others?”
Hasdai ibn Shaprut

Christopher Dines
“First and foremost, if we maintain healthy emotional boundaries and direct love and kindness inwards, we are taking care of ourselves and secondly we are giving a subliminal message to others about how we wish to be treated. People tend to subconsciously treat us how we treat ourselves.”
Christopher Dines, Mindfulness Burnout Prevention: An 8-Week Course for Professionals

Vironika Tugaleva
“Authenticity is not the search for uniqueness. An oak tree does not try to become an oak tree. A cactus does not try to become a cactus. All living things simply reach for nourishment - they reach for sun, reach for water, reach their roots deeper into the ground. By being open to receiving what they need, they become unique effortlessly. So let yourself fall open. Forget about crafting yourself a unique personality. Just allow. Allow in love. Allow pain. Allow desire. Allow learning. Allow healing. Allow frustration. Allow uncertainty. Allow yourself to experience what you must experience and learn what you need to learn, so that your uniqueness can emerge organically.”
Vironika Tugaleva

Christopher Dines
“To be self-compassionate is not to be self-indulgent or self-centred. A major component of self-compassion is to be kind to yourself. Treat yourself with love, care, dignity and make your wellbeing a priority. With self-compassion, we still hold ourselves accountable professionally and personally, but there are no toxic emotions inflicted upon and towards ourselves.”
Christopher Dines, Mindfulness Burnout Prevention: An 8-Week Course for Professionals

“The imperfections in life are what make life perfect.”
Gary Leblanc

“Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others.”
Christopher Germer

Nikki Rowe
“It's easier said than done but when you feel yourself out of balance within, stop in that present moment and catch your breathe.
Remind yourself of 5 things, that help you feel most alive and re-centre your own energy frequency so you can continue living out of your intentions not the world's distractions.”
Nikki Rowe

Vironika Tugaleva
“Be kind to yourself. Remember that when you abuse yourself, you will experience the anger, regret, and apathy of the bully as well as the depression, anxiety, and insecurity of the victim. Whatever you do, be kind to yourself.”
Vironika Tugaleva

Nikki Rowe
“Accept where you are, accept what you have, accept who you are ~ do what you can with all of that and let it be enough.”
Nikki Rowe

Vironika Tugaleva
“No one's approval is enough to make up for a lack of self-love, which is really a lack of self-awareness.

When we feel a desire to be loved, it isn't other people's love we need. It's our own relationship with love that we're longing for, our own awareness of being interconnected with others, our own sense of the magic of our own interwoven existence.

To seek the fulfillment of this desire in others' approval is a losing battle. It will never be enough. No one can compliment you enough to supplement for the acceptance that you need from your own self, in each moment. Acceptance for your struggles and your talents. Acceptance for your humanity. Celebration of that humanity.

Love is an inside job.”
Vironika Tugaleva

“To be a better person, spend less time filling out your personal scorecard and more time being kind . . . to you.”
Philip Chard, Nature's Ways: Experiencing the Sacred in the Natural World

Vironika Tugaleva
“Before label yourself and before you decide that there is something irreparably wrong with your thoughts or emotions, ask yourself: “Do I have a caring, unconditionally loving best friend in myself?” If the answer is “No,” then you will not find the solution to your suffering until you address this serious, life-threatening absence of self-compassion. Self-love is not a dinner mint. Self-love matters. Self-love saves lives.”
Vironika Tugaleva

“When we practice self-compassion in our lives, we are compelled to be more understanding and accepting toward ourselves.”
