Loving yourself isn’t always easy. There is so much negativity around—criticism, impossibly high standards, perfectionism—it is easy to lose sight of how wonderful you really are. But with a little self-love, you can get back on track.
In Self-Love, you’ll find 120 reflections that will help you cultivate and strengthen self-love. From recognizing the power of your body to forgiving yourself for past mistakes, this simple yet empowering guide will provide the tools to reconstruct how you view yourself. Each reflection comes with a short exercise that will help you actively build self-love and not just view it as an abstract concept.
From self-loathing to self-compassion, you deserve to love yourself and celebrate the greatness within. So open your mind, take a few deep breaths, focus on the desire to change and you will learn to love yourself more than you ever have before.

Beautiful inside out, I cannot believe a self-help non-fiction read would be this pretty, practical and promising! Divided into two parts, the first part explains in simple words what self-help means and how we perceive it as. This part becomes quite helpful and insightful when it comes to us understanding our inability to practice it even though we understand it. The second part is the major portion of the book which delivers as exactly how the title presents. This book is all about practising self-love. Even if we're willing to do the same but the moment you read this book, you will come to realise we do not actively practice as much as we want. When it comes to our own selves it's just easier to neglect ourselves and become the root cause of our problem without even realising it. Yes, this book reminds us of this tiny information. Just telling ourselves to practice self-love isn't enough. Like telling someone eat chicken curry without telling them the recipe. We have to start from somewhere and if a book like this is there to supplement on how to take care of ourselves, then why not?! The writing is fun and quite convincing. Self-help books tend to sound like they're nagging but (thankfully!) this one doesn't. I just love the pages with quotes. They are so beautiful! And about the taking action parts, they will make you think first. Yes, it starts from there and I find them quite helpful. The exercises start there itself. This is the kind of book you would want to keep by your side at all times....more so because it's so beautiful and quite helpful! Thank you Publisher and Authors for the advanced readers copy.
This book contains some really good piece of advice! I really can't wait to read the finished copy so I can anotate and quote everywhere. It came to me in a moment of my life I really needed this . the topics self-love deals with are really important and universal. I love the way the advice are presented and the issues are highlighted!
A book I think everyone should read at one point in their lives. It really help me to start my journey to self love with exercises that I practice every day. It gives you clean ideas of WHAT IS self-love, what you can do to improve it and show you that is not something it appears overnight but with patience, love and practice you can achieve it.
Beautifully written and laid out. Self hope, self love, anxiety and depression mixed with self doubt. I felt like this book was speaking to me and for me. It was so beautifully written and resonated to my core. Highly recommend. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers. Self Love: 100+ quotes, reflections and activities is exactly what the cover describes. This book is a beautifully put together book of self-help methods mixed with reflective thoughts and questions, beautiful and meaningful quotes, activities to help centre your mindfulness and self love through daily life and comforting words and ideas to help you practice self love daily. The layout of this book is beautiful and relaxing and the book itself is divided into two sections - information about what self-love is and how we tend to generally perceive it, and then the reflective parts, activities, quotes etc. This book is a fantastic resource to help everyone practice self love and recognise ways to do it, ways we don't do it, find time to do it and be at peace with it when we do do it. I often feel selfish for having some "me" time as I have children, but this book has helped me understand the need to have it and other ways I can practice self-love without feeling guilty. I highly recommend this book, especially with the current pandemic and stresses and strains of daily life.
Oh, my word! Firstly huge thanks to the publisher for my ARC. I thought I knew what self-love but I was wrong. This book was an eye-opener on what self-love is and practises of self-love one can do. I totally recommend this book although it seems to start a tad bit slow and could demotivate you because it reads like a scientific book it gets better and the colors on the pages are everything. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone in need of self-love and don't know where to start
This is a lovely little book to help readers improve their relationships with themselves. It would be great as a daily devotional or to pick up when in need of a boost. There is inspiration from a number of different places, making this a great book for anyone to pick up. Many thanks to Adams Media and NetGalley for the advance copy.
Incredibly powerful little book that guides you through self-love. Simple yet full of information. Highly recommended as a starter guide

**I received an ARC from the publisher on Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely LOVED Self-Love! If we're honest with ourselves, we all struggle with self love and I love how Devi B. Dillard-Wright wrote this book. It wasn't a self help book. It did give some adivce but it was practical. Devi starts off claiming to not cure you but to offer quotes and reflections to help you love yourself. This will be a book I buy and have lots of highlighted texts and notes in the margin. It's worth reading!
This was so powerful and something I needed to read right now. I would buy this for every female in my life as I think everyone needs to read this.

However, I have been working on that and this book is perfect! I love starting my day by reading a little from this to brighten the mood and set my intentions for a better self-care day. Wonderful book for anyone who has trouble learning to love themselves.
