"You are amazing!"
"Like a snowflake, there is no one else like you."
"If you don't like yourself, neither will anyone else."
"You choose to be happy or not."
"Don't believe it when someone tells you that you are not perfect."

When we love only ourselves, we cannot be happy. Self love is only a part of love, and without the rest of the story, we are really incomplete.
