Why You Should Love Those Freckles

“Let someone love you just as you are. As flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you might feel, as unaccomplished as you might think you are. And let that someone be you.” – Sandra King

Sometimes it’s much easier to love and forgive others than yourself. We use words with ourselves that we’d never ever use to speak with others. ‘I can’t believe you did this. You’re so stupid.’ ‘You’re useless’ ‘You can’t do anything right.’ Would you say something similar to this to your friends? So why say it to yourself? You should be your own friend. When you love yourself, you emanate a different energy that makes others like to be around you. It’s like a cycle. So make this your resolution for next year: Love Yourself.

Here are 5 self-love songs to help you work on that:

Pink – F*cking Perfect

You’re so mean when you talk
About yourself. You were wrong.
Change the voices in your head
Make them like you instead.

India.Arie – Video

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it’s suppose to be
And I know my creator didn’t make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my Lips, my eyes, I’m loving what I see

Christina Aguilera – Beautiful

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down… Oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

Lady Gaga – Born This Way

“There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are”
She said, “‘Cause he made you perfect, babe”
“So hold your head up girl and you’ll go far

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way

I am not a fan of Lady Gaga but I think these lyrics are kind of awesome so I found this clip from Glee. I really like the idea of the T-shirts:

Mariah Carey – Hero

So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

Songs To Listen To After A Break-up

I know some people like to listen to sad songs about love after a break-up but because I’ve always tried to fight this sadness and depression, I found other types of song to listen to after a break-up, more empowering than sad. Let’s be honest, most of these songs are no masterpieces. However, their lyrics can be really empowering. They talk about having confidence instead of feeling sorry for yourself, they talk about being strong instead of getting down.

So here is my list of 12 songs to listen to when someone breaks your heart:

1. Beyonce – Best Thing You Never Had

“You don’t deserve my tears, I guess that’s why they ain’t there.”

“Thank God I found the good in goodbye.”

 

2. Justin Timberlake – What Goes Around…Comes Around

 

3. Aerosmith – Don’t Get Mad, Get Even

4. Timbaland ft. One Republic – Apologize

“Tell me that you’re sorry, didn’t think I’d turn around and say ‘It’s too late to apologize'”

“I loved you with a fire red, now it’s turning blue.”

 

5- Kelly Clarkson – Since U Been Gone

“But since you’ve been gone, I can breathe for the first time.”

“You had your chance, you blew it. Out of sight, out of mind.”

 

6- Richie Kotzen – Let’s Say Goodbye

“Look in my eyes and I’ll know it’s over and I will go on from right here with the rest of my life.”

 

7- Lúcia Moniz ft Nuno Bettencourt – Try Again

“I can’t believe you’d say these things if you’re in love with me. Try again.

I never thought you’d ever say those awful things to me. Try again.”

“It’s such a shame but I’m leaving, can’t take the way you mistreated me.”
