“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you.

“You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. 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.

What do you do when you find a self worth quote that resonates with you?

When you find a self worth quote that resonates with you to your core, don’t lose it.

  1. You can write it down in your self-love journal so that you can refer back to it or rewrite it when you’re feeling in need of a confidence boost.
  2. Use it like a journal prompt, expand upon it, or simply write about how it makes you feel.
  3. Repeat the quote almost as if you would an affirmation of self-love whenever you feel you need it. You can write it on sticky notes around your mirror or in your phone’s notes app.
  4. Look for affirmation art with a similar message! I have some printable affirmation art on my Etsy store, if you want to check it out.
