A Playlist to Love & Self-Empowerment

Valentine’s Day often centers around the couples, the friends and maybe a family member or two – probably your parents – and quite honestly that’s not the most important part. An essential piece of any relationship is you. That is why, if you don’t practice self-love, then you really should. Loving yourself is key for you to have long, affectionate and memorable relationships.

Here are some empowering songs along with favorite phrases that should be played on a loop:

Body Of My Own ; Charli XCX

“Got my darkness. I'm into myself, don't need you. Cause I'm gone, so high”

Believe In Me ; Demi Lovato

“I don't wanna be afraid, I wanna wake up feeling beautiful..today. And know that I'm okay, cause everyone's perfect in unusual ways. So you see, I just wanna believe in me”

Scars To Your Beautiful ; Alessia Cara

“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”

Who Says ; Selena Gomez

"I'm sure you got some things you'd like to change about yourself. But when it comes to me, I wouldn't want to be anybody else."

Who You Are ; Jessie J

“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!

On My Own ; Miley Cyrus

“I can do anything, yeah. And I'll do it on my own, I will get it done with the help from no one. I came into this world by myself, so I don't need nobody else”

The Climb ; Miley Cyrus

“The struggles I'm facing, the chances I'm taking. Sometimes might knock me down, but no, I'm not breaking.”

Little Me ; Little Mix

“Go back in time and maybe listen to my own advice. I'd tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out, talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder. Tell her she's beautiful, wonderful, everything she doesn't see,”

Good Enough ; Little Mix

“Release your curse. 'Cause I know my worth. Those wounds you made are gone. You ain't seen nothing yet”

Try ; Colbie Caillat

“You don't have to try so hard. You don't have to give it all away. You just have to get up,”
