Strong proud woman quotes boost self esteem!

If you follow me at all, you know that I had a helluva life and it was in the last few years that I found that these inspirational posters you find on Facebook and Instagram are the ones that kept me going, empowered me, encouraged and motivated me and totally changed my life.

I can remember reading these and day by day my self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-love kept getting stronger and stronger.

I would listen to guided meditations as well to help with my self-esteem!

I can honestly say now I truly feel like a powerful woman.

When we’ve been kicked down for so many years it’s hard to love ourselves and to establish true self-esteem. It takes a lot of work. We have to forgive everyone who hurt us, forget about the failures, and concentrate on our successes.

We also tend to lose ourselves in toxic relationships or sink down with low self-esteem and self-worth. If you are in that spot and feel you may need to speak to a professional please check out I’ve recently partnered with them and they are amazing. Click the link or the image below to learn more.

These self confidence quotes for women will help you too!!!

When you’re done reading them, you’ll be standing on the rooftops shouting “LOOK AT ME!! I’M AWESOME!” or something like that. I know each time I find a good one I find myself yelling “hell ya” at the monitor.

Ya. I’m kinda crazy like that. But I want you to be crazy like that too. I want you to read these strong proud woman quotes and cheer yourself on. I want you to feel so empowered that nothing and no one can ever cut you down again.

I want you to feel each one in the depths of your soul and really really embrace the meaning and the power of them. Read them over and over again if you have to.

It’s hard to love yourself

In order to become a strong and powerful woman, you need to have healthy self-love and that’s not always so easy to come by.

Have a look at some of the more famous strong women to see what they had to endure in order to learn to love themselves.

Maya Angelou, Louise Hay, Lisa Nichols, and Oprah Winfrey just to name a few. They didn’t have easy lives. They had to dig deep and find strength, power, and healthy self-love in order to be the strong women they are today.

Over on my new YouTube channel I recently did a video about believing in yourself and your self worth. I think you might really enjoy it.

When we finally learn to love ourselves and appreciate the magnificent being we truly are, we then become strong, self-confident, and amazing women.

Not only that, but we can also be a great role model and we can then serve others from a place of love, not fear.

Quotes for strong women rule my world!

You already know, I’m all about quotes. I especially love the ones for women because someone wrote them just for us.

Because there were women who went through the same crap you are going through now, they know how you feel, and wrote an inspirational message just for you.

I like all kinds to be honest. The hope ones, the happy ones, the love ones, hell I even like the really sarcastic dry humour ones too, but the strong proud woman quotes are by far, my favourites.

I love them so much I even created a few myself. Being a strong chick myself, I’ve been through a poop ton of really bad stuff and have come out smiling. So ya, I even wrote some.

The best thing a woman can learn is to never need a man.

The best thing a woman can learn is to never need a manPin

So many of us think we ‘need’ a man to be whole or complete. We don’t! We don’t need anyone to complete us or love us. A strong woman knows this!

Something will grow from all you are going through…and it will be you.

Something will grow from all you are going through...and it will be youPin

You will indeed grow strong and beautiful from all the hell you are going through right now. Pull up your big girl panties and keep pushing forward. Change is hard. Growth is hard. Do them both anyway.

I’m stronger now because I’ve learned to turn heartbreak into peace, hurt into love and anger into forgiveness.

I'm stronger now because I've learned to turn heartbreak into peace..Pin

It’s not easy to let go of hurt and anger but a strong woman knows how and she does it. She knows she is worthy of inner peace and love. We can practice letting go of all this hurt and anger through forgiveness. Another thing that’s really hard to do but so worth it. 

Remember, we don’t forgive people for them, we do it for us. For our peace of mind and happiness.

The person I am today would like to thank the person I was 5 years ago for not giving up. You’re awesome!

15 strong women quotes to boost your self esteemPin

If you need something to believe in, start with yourself.

If you need something to believe in, start with yourself.Pin

I so get that it’s hard to believe in yourself but you really must. Start telling yourself how awesome you are on a daily basis and soon you will believe it!! Even though you may have lost some battles you’re still in the race and you will win.

You never know how strong you are until strong is the only choice you have.

Forgive yourself for accepting less than you deserved…but don’t do it again!

We’ve all done it. Don’t beat yourself up over it. None of us are perfect and we have all lowered our self esteem and self worth for love and acceptance. Forgive yourself and move on my friend!

There is a valuable lesson in everything that we go through. Take the lesson, learn it, grow from it and carry on with your head held high.

You will be too much for some people. Those aren’t your people.

You will be too much for some people.Pin

Not everyone is going to understand you or your path. Don’t change so they will like you. You just be yourself and you will attract the right people.

Fitting in is overrated and for the weak. YOU are unique and amazing. Don’t worry about what everyone else thinks of you or your path.

It’s none of your business anyway.

I’m stronger because I had to be, I’m smarter because of my mistakes and wiser because I learned.

I'm stronger because I had to be..Pin

No one is perfect. We all make mistakes. A strong woman learns from her mistakes and moves on. She doesn’t waste time beating herself up over it.

Let it goooooooooooooo!!! In a year from now you’ll be laughing about them anyway. Trust me on that.

You are amazing and good on you for slaying your demons and showing up to life as the best version of yourself. Keep on keeping on!


A strong woman never gives up even though her heart is heavy. She takes one more brave step and then another, and then another.

A strong woman never gives up even though her heart is heavy.Pin

She will never give up. She keeps on going no matter what, just like the Energizer bunny. She has immense faith, determination, and courage.

Nothing ever grows from comfort zones or things that are easy. You have to keep pushing forward no matter how hard things are or how crappy life has been lately.

Keep going.

You are stronger than you think.

You are stronger than you think.Pin

You truly are. Even when we feel like giving up and there is no hope we already know deep down inside that we are strong women and we got this. We know we will come out smelling like roses at the end of the day.

It’s easy to want to throw in the towel and give up, but don’t you dare do that. The weak give up, the strong forge ahead.

Do not waste your precious time.Pin

Why does it matter what people think of us? Most people don’t even think highly of themselves. Don’t ever forget that. Their opinion of you doesn’t matter. Hold your head up high sweet one.

Remember, most people don’t even think highly of themselves.

The most important day of your life is the day you decide you are good enough. That is the day that will set you free.

The most important day of your life is the day you decide you are good enoughPin

This will be the best day of your life. This, in my opinion, is one of the most powerful inspirational quotes for women. This is the day our whole life can and will change.

I know what I bring to the table so trust me when I say I’m not afraid to eat alone.

I am not afraid of being by myself and am quite happy in my own company!
