Music can be a beneficial outlet for all different kinds of stressors. Today, I’ve compiled a list of 10 songs specifically for when you need to give yourself some extra love and remember how strong, beautiful, and worthy you are. Feel free to make a whole new playlist!

Naked Girl – Iyla

Favorite lyrics: 

    “Just know you look good, baby, in your body

    You know you’re worth it

    Just love all of you, naked girl

    You are beautiful the way you are

    Stay naturally perfect 

    Just love all of you, naked girl, naked girl”

Thursday – Jess Glynne

Favorite lyrics: 

    “And there are so many things that I could change so slightly 

    But why would I succumb to something so unlike me?

    I was always taught to just be myself

    Don’t change for anyone”

Perfect – Anne Marie

Favorite lyrics: 

    “Love every single part of my body

    Top to the bottom

    I’m not a supermodel from a magazine 

    I’m okay with not being perfect

    ‘Cause that’s perfect to me

Scars to Your Beautiful – Alessia Cara

Favorite lyrics: 

    “You should know that 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 scars and we’re beautiful”

 Beautiful – Bazzi

Favorite lyrics: 

    “Beautiful angel

    Love your imperfections, every angle

    Tomorrow comes and go before you know 

    So I just had to let you know”

Kings & Queens – Ava Max

Favorite lyrics:  

“If all of the kings had their queens on the throne

We would pop champagne and raise a toast

To all of the queens who are fighting alone 

Baby, you’re not dancing on you own”

Pretty Hurts – Beyonce

Favorite lyrics: 

    “We shine the light on whatever’s worst

    Perfection is a disease of a nation

    Pretty hurts, pretty hurts” 

I Love Me – Demi Lovato

Favorite lyrics: 

    “I’m my own worst critic 

    Talk a whole lot of sh*t

    But I’m a ten out of ten 

    Even when I forget 

    I’m a ten out of ten, don’t you ever forget it”

I’m not Pretty – Jessia 

Favorite lyrics:

“Maybe I’m not pretty, maybe I’m just fun 

‘Cause I got a belly and I got a bum

But I can’t be jelly of all the other ones 

So I’m falling in love with my rump-ump-ump-ump”

Soulmate – Lizzo

Favorite lyrics: 

    ‘Cause I’m my own soulmate 

    I know how to love me 

    I know that I’m always gonna hold me down 

    Yeah I’m my own soulmate

    No, I’m never lonely

    I know I’m a queen, but I don’t need no crown”

Hopefully listening to these songs will remind you of the queen you are! No matter what is going on in your life, it’s always important to show yourself love and compassion.
