A collection of body positivity quotes to help you with your journey of loving and accepting your body and building self-confidence! 

I have always had body image issues. Growing up, I was taught that being “fat” or even gaining weight is not a good thing. 

So, during my teenage years, I always pushed myself to constantly watch my weight and be on a diet. 

I remembered a time when I was so overwhelmed by having to constantly watch what I eat and how much I weigh and that I ended up started gaining weight. 

And tell you the truth, I had no problem with that, I was still happy and I didn’t really think that it would matter anymore but then my family and even my family’s friends started commenting about how much weight I gained every time they see me that I just felt so crushed. 

I felt so humiliated every time they talk about my weight in gatherings. I hated them and I hated myself for allowing this to happen. I hated my body. 

But as I grew older, I realized that my weight should have nothing to do with defining me as a person. I’m starting to understand that the thing about beauty is, it should have nothing to do with how much I weigh.

Because it didn’t really matter how much weight I lost or gained, at the end of the day, every time I looked at myself in the mirror, I still hated my body and I still called myself ugly for that. 

That’s when I realized that regardless of how much I weigh, I would always find something about my body that I didn’t love and I would still end up hating it. 

So, I’ll tell you this, the only way that you would ever feel enough is if you believe that you are enough just as you are without having to look for acceptance and validation elsewhere. 

Learning to love yourself, body acceptance, and self-acceptance is the only way that we will ever be comfortable in our own body – no amount of diet or exercise will give that to us. 

But of course, doing those things and changing your life and mindset is not something that we can just achieve in a day, it’s a journey and it’s not a straight path.

To be honest, until now, I’m still definitely working on it. There are still days when I avoided mirrors because I didn’t want to see myself but the only difference now is, I know that my body is not the problem, and all I have to do is to change my mindset and let go of negativity. 

I realized to never sacrificed my mental health just to achieve what society believes should be the “perfect weight” because that simply doesn’t exist.

So, to help you get started on this journey and to help you learn to love yourself right, I’ve collected positive quotes about body positivity to help remind you that you are enough and your body deserves to be loved and respected.
