What is Self Love?

How do we define self-love? Self-love goes beyond feeling good about yourself. It’s about appreciating yourself. It’s about self-acceptance and giving yourself permission to grow into who you really are. Self-love starts from the inside, but it doesn’t stop there.

Once you start feeling more self-love, it becomes like a newfound superpower. It makes you stronger and inspires you to share that love with the world.

Self Love is our Superpower

‘Look after yourself’, ‘Be kind to others’, ‘Be kind to yourself’, ‘Be kind to your planet’.

We need you to stop. And ask yourself right now: Do you love yourself?

Self-love is about appreciating yourself, it’s about self-acceptance and giving yourself permission to grow into who you really are.

That means learning to accept ourselves first and learning to love ourselves next

What is the self love uprising?

Self-love has the power to lift us up to fight for change together. That’s why we believe that self-love is action. And now, it’s time to act.
