Loving yourself can be a difficult task especially in today’s generation. With social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter, comparing yourself to others has become the norm.

People are prone to loving others but are never satisfied with themselves or comfortable in their own skin. Self love should be the first priority before providing love to others.

Since February is the month of love, it is important to know that the most important person to shower with love is you. In no particular order, here are five songs that promote self love. Links to each song are in pink!
