Monday Playlist - Love Yourself

Monday, 5 November 2018

The start of my Monday Playlists, and what better way than with songs that help you get out of bad head space. Have you ever felt not good enough? Whether it is from rejection from a guy or from your parents or even from a friend? 

I've been feeling like that a lot lately. That sinking feeling of no matter what you achieve, it will never be good enough. It hurts more than many people realise but I have found a few songs that will have you believing that you are worthy and that you are good enough. . 

1. Try - Colbie Caillat

I first heard this song back in 2015 and it has had a powerful affect on me. The words show you that you don't have to please anyone except yourself. You are the most important person and what others think of you doesn't matter!

You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing

2. Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya

I first heard this song on Pitch Perfect 3, and I couldn't look it up or download it fast enough. A very Girl empowering song that again tells you don't have to look a certain way or do things just for guys. You are a perfect, strong person who can achieve anything! And doing and saying things just to get a boyfriend shouldn't be your top priority.

Oh, I don't know what you've been told
But this gal right here's gonna rule the world

Yeah, that is where I'm gonna be because I wanna be
No, I don't wanna sit still, look pretty
You get off on your nine to five
Dream of picket fences and trophy wives
But no, I'm never gonna be 'cause I don't wanna be
No, I don't wanna sit still look pretty

3. Thank you, Next - Ariana Grande

Ariana released this song on the weekend and it has become an anthem for anyone who has been let down by guys. As she says in the song she has moved onto the next, herself. Although she is grateful to her ex but it's time for herself now. 

Spend more time with my friends

I ain't worried 'bout nothin'
Plus, I met someone else
We havin' better discussions
I know they say I move on too fast
But this one gon' last
'Cause her name is Ari
And I'm so good with that 

4. Brave - Sara Bareilles

This song is for the times when you don't feel strong enough or brave enough to do what you want. Those times when you feel doubtful and scared. You are brave enough and have enough courage within you to do whatever you want. Don't ever doubt who you are.

Everybody’s been there, everybody’s been stared down

By the enemy
Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

5. Who Says - Selena Gomez

In our society where we see all these "perfect" people on Instagram, living the dream life, there have admittedly been times when you wish you were like them or that your life was like theirs. But you are perfect the way you are. You are amazing and shouldn't want to be anyone else. You are worthy and beautiful!

Who says

Who says you're not perfect
Who says you're not worth it
Who says you're the only one that's hurting
Trust me
That's the price of beauty
Who says you're not pretty
Who says you're not beautiful
Who says

6. I am Invincible - Cassadee Pope

I only found this song last night, but it is so beautiful. Cassadee makes you remember that no matter what you have been through, you are able to achieve anything you want in this life. No matter how many scars your heart has or what you have been through, you can do anything. 

I am invincible

I am unbreakable
I am a diamond cut to last
I am unstoppable
I am a hero
Like a phoenix from the ash

I hope this playlist will help anyone that questions their worth, their abilities or questions whether they are good enough. You are no matter what anyone says. Be strong, be brave and be invincible!
