Love Yourself

like your self

Life has its way of bringing us down every now and then. But during these times you really don’t have to look too far for help.

Just look to yourself and try some self-affirmation – it’s one of the greatest gifts that human beings have.

It’s almost an internal compass that shows us the way when things are going wrong. If you’re going through a low in your life, just dig deep down within yourself and remember the times you’ve picked yourself up when there was no one else.

Sure there might have been a few people who’ve been there for you, but think about it, you’re the only person who’s actually been there for yourself, every single time. Not that you’ve had a choice in the matter, but you get the idea.

So give yourself a break, pour yourself a drink and listen to our list of songs that celebrate the most inspiring person in your life: you. You’ve come a long way, and you have yourself to thank for it.
It’s Probably Me – Sting


One minute people love you, then they’ll diss you. Sting captures the self-affirmation vibe well, how you’ll never be without a friend, if you make friends with yourself.
“You search the city for your only friend

No one would you see

Ask yourself, who’d watch for me

A solitary voice to speak out and set me free”

I hate to say it

I hate to say it, but it’s probably me”

Never Had a Friend Like Me – Tupac

West Cost Boss Player, Tupac Shakur couldn’t have been more bang on.
Life is uncertain, people will talk, people will ditch, but you’ll never have a friend like you.


“I’m down for you so ride with me

My enemies your enemies

Cause you ain’t never had a friend like me

Nobody knows where we’ll be

My Enemies your enemies

Cause you ain’t never had a friend like me”

The One and Only – Chesney Hawkes


Chesney Lee Hawkes topped the English charts with this hit single which
was all about himself, and you couldn’t take that away from him if you tried.
“I am the one and only

Nobody I’d rather be

I am the one and only

You can’t take that away from me”
Be Yourself – Audioslave


Hard rock supergroup Audioslave cracked a near-perfect melody, along with a
message that tells us to trust ourselves, no matter who we are, or what we do.

“Don’t lose any sleep tonight

I’m sure everything will end up alright

You may win or lose

But to be yourself is all that you can do

To be yourself is all that you can do”

Sara Bareilles – Brave


Not exactly a song on self-affirmation, but it gets into our list because of the sheer self-belief it drives back into the human spirit. Go on, get out there, be brave.
“You can be amazing

You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug

You can be the outcast

Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love

Or you can start speaking up”
