Social media has caused many of us to value ourselves based on the number of likes, reposts and shares we get. Because of this, many of us have filtered and photoshopped our way to 'perfection'. But in reality, we are more than what social media makes us out to be. 
 
So instead of being guided by social media's standards, here are 10 quotes about self-love and image that we should hold dear to be our true authentic self. 

“We can't be so desperate for love that we forget where we can always find it — within.” 
— Alexandra Elle
 
Self-love has very little to do with how you feel about your outer self. It's about accepting all of yourself.  
— Tyra Banks
 
“Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn't have the time to sit around and talk about you. What's important to me is not others' opinions of me, but what's important to me is my opinion of myself.” 
— C. JoyBell C.
 
“If you have the ability to love, love yourself first.” 
— Charles Bukowski
 
I think happiness is what makes me pretty. Period. Happy people are beautiful. They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness. 
— Drew Barrymore
 
If only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies, how different our ideals of beauty would be. 
— Unknown
 
Don’t let your mind bully your body. 
— June Tomaso Wood
 
My great hope for us as young women is to start being kinder to ourselves so that we can be kinder to each other. To stop shaming ourselves and other people: too fat, too skinny, too short, too tall, too anything. There’s a sense that we’re all not enough. This is life. Our bodies change. Our minds change. Our hearts change. 
— Emma Stone
 
To me beauty is about being comfortable in your own. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are. 
— Ellen DeGeneres
 
So don’t waste so much time thinking about how much you weigh. There is no more mind-numbing, boring, idiotic, self-destructive diversion from the fun of living. 
— Meryl Streep
