22. “Are you ignoring your own needs to meet someone else’s? Do you want to? If not, whisper to yourself the magic words. Not my responsibility. Not my problem. And you know their real magic? Used properly, these words can help us enjoy social occasions more than we ever thought possible by plugging unnecessary energy drains: the stuff that is not our responsibility and not our problem.” – Sophia Dembling

23. “As women, we often struggle to set aside time for ourselves.” – Megan Logan

24. “By offering ourselves the opportunity for stress reduction and taking time to reflect and re-center, we can shift focus from external events into our bodies—this is a form of self-love. By calming our minds and our bodies, we get in tune with ourselves.” – Megan Logan

25. “Each day presents itself as a new opportunity to reset and reawaken self-love. If you struggled the day before to set aside time and make yourself a priority, it’s okay. It is never too late to start practicing self-love.” – Megan Logan

26. “Freeing up space and time to nurture yourself and practice self-care allows for a renewal of energy and an endless supply of fuel that comes from within. It’s like a well that never runs out of water.” – Megan Logan

27. “I used to think that self-love sounded indulgent and luxurious. Who has time for that when work, families, and relationships demand so much of our energy and time? I quickly learned that living fully requires that we nurture ourselves well beyond the scope of getting a manicure, drinking a glass of wine, and soaking in the tub. Sure, relaxation and pampering are lovely and essential. But true self-love involves more. It means we develop honesty within ourselves, identify our values, and create an authentic life free from self-harm and self-destructive patterns. It’s about creating a life in which our choices and decisions nurture and reflect our true selves and values.” – Megan Logan

28. “If you know you are an introvert, then you know you are an introvert and that’s that. You don’t have to fight to prove it. Explain yourself if you want, but don’t justify yourself. Pick your battles.” – Sophia Dembling

29. “Other people may not understand that when you slip away for a few minutes of quiet time, leave before they want you to, or sit quietly on the sidelines, it’s not because you dislike them. It’s because you like them and don’t want to go all bitchy on them. So it’s a matter of first retraining yourself, then others.” – Sophia Dembling

30. “Our lives are busy as we hustle around trying to complete the activities on our schedules. Often, we run out of time and energy by the end of the day, making self-love challenging to achieve. I have found that scheduling time to practice self-love makes a difference.” – Megan Logan

31. “Retraining is an incremental process, but every time you excuse yourself from the house to take a walk, or leave when the party is just getting heated up, or drink that first cup of morning coffee in your bedroom instead of with the family, you retrain people to expect that of you.” – Sophia Dembling

32. “Self-nurturing opportunities happen all the time—a hot cup of tea, the smell of our soap, the sun on our face—and sometimes when we are preoccupied or lost in thought, we miss it. A trick to practicing self-love is to give yourself five minutes a day. Now during those five minutes, you must show up fully, staying present and aware.” – Megan Logan

33. “Taking breaks can help; walk around the building or the block to let your brain air out. Take yourself to lunch alone, or brown-bag it and dine solo in a peaceful spot. (Is there a park nearby? Perfect.) You can even resort to catching a few minutes’ peace sitting in your car. And of course, if all else fails, there’s the bathroom, which works as well on the job as it does at parties.” – Sophia Dembling

34. “There’s nothing wrong with declining to join every party, deciding not to talk to everyone who crosses your path, choosing quality over quantity in your relationships. It just means that you know your limits and choose to save yourself for people and activities that matter. Other people might think that means you don’t like people, but what it really means is that you only make time for people you like.” – Sophia Dembling

35. “Today, as women, we often find ourselves taking care of our children, our parents, our friends, our lovers. We extend grace and compassion toward others so easily, yet we often struggle to make space and time to put ourselves first. Perhaps this stems from a faulty belief that we are selfish or undeserving. Maybe it comes from internalized societal messages, early childhood wounds, or deeply rooted trauma. Or perhaps we just don’t take the time to prioritize ourselves.” – Megan Logan

36. “We all want our families to understand and appreciate our essential nature. And over time, if you quietly and without hostility assert yourself, your loving family is bound to come around and see you as you are. If they don’t, that’s a pity. But you don’t have to make them. You just have to find ways to work around them. No big whoop.” – Sophia Dembling

37. “When working on topics like self-love, you may find yourself on a bumpy road at times, hitting potholes or even breaking down on the side of the road. These challenges may come in the form of self-doubt, fear, being too busy, distractions, a fear of being too self-indulgent, or feelings of not being worthy enough to even get started. Please be patient with yourself and know that you are worth it. Don’t give up!” – Megan Logan

38. “With daily practice, any new action—in this case, self-love—becomes ingrained. Sure, in the beginning, this is challenging. It feels like work or maybe even self-indulgent at times. Nevertheless, if continued, this new behavior will become second nature, allowing for self-love to grow.” – Megan Logan
