Self-Love Songs

We all know the role that our confidence and self-esteem plays in our general lives, and sometimes we can feel on top of the world and other times we can feel really self-conscious. The other night I was thinking about the impact music has on me and how I feel. I thought it was applicable to the community and felt like it'd be nice to have a thread dedicated to songs of Self-love and self-confidence.

 

Have a song you LOVE that promotes, encourages or articulates self-love and/or self-confidence ? Post it below and let us know what you love about the song/artist Smiley Happy <3

 

I have a few and I've actually created a self-love playlist for myself but here are some of my personal favourites. I found it so hard to only pick a couple so I've got a whole list for you here Smiley Happy (Keep tuned there will be more coming too!)

 

Perfect - Pink (Clean version) I love PINK! I love her no BS attitude and how she says it like it is! And this song is no exception! I have all of her songs and I can listen to her on repeat!

Basically I like this song because it's saying you are prefect the way YOU are as you are!

Favourite part:

Pretty, pretty, please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than perfect
Pretty, pretty, please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing. You're perfect to me

 

Which brings me to my next song which is kinda older but has a very similar idea

Who You Are - Jessie J I love the way Jessie J is straight to the point here about being true to yourself

Favourite Part:

Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay...
Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart.
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are!

 

Try - Colbie Caillat I love this song and the video clip for it. In the video we see the artist Colbie Caillat and other celebrities, take off their makeup and show us their natural selves. I feel like it promotes self-love and being you you are naturally

Favourite part: 

You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to bend until you break
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing
You don't have to try, try, try, try

 

Katy Perry Known for her out there attitude and fun part pop songs Katy Perry has gone through some alright struggles herself and she has previously shown this in her 2012 Documentary Part of Me and then again when she live streamed a counselling session to the public. I found it really hard to pick a song from Katy, however I chose these two because they both relate to self-love so well. 

Love me

Favourite Part:

I found I had to love myself, the way I wanted you to...
...love me,
No more second guessing
No, there’s no more questioning
I’ll be the one defining who I'm gonna be
No concealing feelings, or changing seasonally
I’m gonna love myself, the way I want you to love me

 

By the Grace of God

Favourite Part:

I know I am enough
Possible to be loved
It was not about me
Now I have to rise above
Let the Universe call the bluff
Yeah, the truth will set you free

 


Remember you're amazing just as you are Heart

Re: Self-Love Songs

One of my absolute favourite songs is World Away by Tonight Alive. The lyrics are so incredibly powerful and uplifting. My life is what I make it. I choose to rise and take it

 

The full song:

 

A part of me always believed
I must have brought this on myself
'Cause I'm not where I want to be
And every time I want to change my life
It just feels like trying to turn water into wine

It doesn't have to be a world away
I can hear the song like it's inside of me
I know that if I get to know my pain
I unlock a hundred different doors to better days

Though I take hit after hit
I realise the higher reason is accepting challenges as gifts
And through the fight
I never really knew that I would find myself
That's why I give my thanks to you

It doesn't have to be a world away
I can feel the sun like it's inside of me
I know that if I get to know my pain
I unlock a hundred different doors to better days

My life is what I make it
I choose to rise and take it
From your hands
My life is what I make it
I choose to rise and take it
From your hands

This is not my punishment
This is my catalyst for growth
I know I will survive this
I'll be the strongest person I know

It doesn't have to be a world away
I can see the light like it's inside of me
I know that if I get to know my pain
I unlock a hundred different doors to better days

My life is what I make it
I choose to rise and take it
From your hands
My life is what I make it
I choose to rise and take it
From your hands

This is not my punishment
This is my catalyst for growth
I know I will survive this
I'll be the strongest person I know

Scars To Your Beautiful - Alessia Cara

But there's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark
You should know you're beautiful just the way you are
And you don't have to change a thing, the world could change its heart
No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

Alessia Cara - Wild Things

So hey, we brought our drum and this is how we dance
No mistakin', we make our breaks, if you don't like our 808s
Then leave us alone, 'cause we don't need your policies
We have no apologies for being

Re: Self-Love Songs

@lokifishI really like that song! Smiley Happy
@FootyFan26 I love Alessia Cara! Such an amazing voice! Smiley Happy
@letitgo@cupcakes_032I hadn't heard those songs before but amazing! I like them!

(I'm adding those to my playlist, Lokifish, letitgo & cupcakes)

 

Some more songs (And apologies I can't be bothered to do the whole analyse bit tonight Smiley Tongue )
"Born This Way" - Lady Gaga

 

Kesha's Hymn, Praying, Learn to Let go, Rainbow

The album Rainbow "is about looking forward and letting go of the past, reflecting without dwelling and ultimately changing for the better." And I think that sums it up beautifully. I love these 4 songs!

 

And a random one from my self-love playlist Only Human - Delta Goodrem


Remember you're amazing just as you are Heart

Re: Self-Love Songs

Remind me to come back later and share what will soon be my "get the heck out of bed" playlist (that I will soon make Smiley Tongue)

Re: Self-Love Songs

Yes @Bee !!!

I LOVE the band Echosmith so quite a few songs of theirs I listen to when I am feeling down:

Safest Place - I love the lyric: It's your story its the safest place you'll ever be. It still gives me chills when I listen to it.

Future Me - it's just a great song that helps put things in perspective when you are going through tough times. 

Cool Kids - most of you will have heard this song and its just a great song with a good message about how being cool can be anything. Also I have just discovered that there's an acapella version involving the muppets it's amazing! 

 

Other songs I really love:

Alive (also known as the Netflix show Greenhouse Academy soundtrack) - it just puts me in a good mood and is really encouraging. I often have it stuck in my head and it's impossible to get out!

Stand (from the Disney Channel Original Movie Zombies) - this song everyone needs to listen to! It's so encouraging and really helps give you courage to stand up and be strong. I listen to it on my way to TAFE to give me a confidence boost. 

 

I also listen to a lot of music from the Christian band The Afters and those songs are also really encouraging and help remind me of my faith. 

I love Hilary Duff's music too, I'm probably showing my age here but I still listen to her songs Why Not, Come Clean and So Yesterday on a weekly basis along with the stuff from the album she released in 2015.

Finally Disney Channel Original Movies are my weakness and I love the soundtracks from the films, they always have a good beat to them and are amazing for putting me a good mood Smiley Happy

Whatever it takes I know I can make it through!

Re: Self-Love Songs

Allow me to share with you my true loves (from Ninjago of course, because where else? Smiley Tongue) They all have lyrics, and those lyrics are just so... ahhh inspirational and I love them!! The first three are from the movie and the last one is the TV show. Smiley Happy

 

The first one is called I Found My Place by Oh! Hush feat Jeff Lewis and I love it literally so much. Please listen to it, it's amazing and upbeat and it's so much fun. I'll find my place too and this song will be there every step of the way Smiley Happy

 

 

Next up is Operation New Me by Jingle Punks. It's probably my third favourite among all three from the LEGO Ninjago Movie BUT It's still pretty cool and I like the lyrics Smiley Happy

 

 

Lastly (from the movie) is Heroes by Blaze N Vill and it's so good! (This one and I Found My Place are tied for the number 1 and 2 spot, I can't decide between them Smiley Tongue) It's just... ahhhh! They've got their powers and they're doing their heroing and I love my tiny yellow ninja okay? They're amazing and so is this song. 

 

 

And now actually lastly and definitely up the top of all time favourites is The Weekend Whip by The Fold! It's the theme song for the TV show and OH MAN it is one of the best songs ever. The Fold also have some other amazing songs, but I'm not as familiar with them yet, but maybe after I pick out some of my favourites, I'll add them Smiley Very Happy 

 

 

And that's it for now! There are of course plenty of other songs that I love but at the moment they are right there at the top. They're always the ones I repeat a couple of times when they show up on shuffle Smiley Tongue

Re: Self-Love Songs

Oohhh @ErinsAntics I must listen to all of these! Smiley Very Happy
