So, not too long ago I was, in fact, single.

Having that experience as well as the experience of being in a relationship has taught me something vital: the most important love is the love you give to yourself.

So, this Valentine's Day I have decided to share a few quotes to promote self-love and positive vibes. Here are 10 quotes that'll help you feel empowered to love yourself:

1. "Grow through what you go through."

2. "In a room full of people, want yourself first."

3. "Because you are alive, everything is possible."

4. "And here you are living despite it all." - Rupi Kaur

5. "Be your own Valentine."

6. "Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others." - Wilfred Peterson

7. "I don't like myself, I'm crazy about myself." - May West

8. "Stop underestimating yourself."

9. "You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." - Buddha

10. "Put yourself at the top of your to-do list every single day and the rest will fall into place."
