songs to help you love yourself this Valentine’s

Hello everyone and HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! This post is really mostly for everyone out there who is single today… who needs a partner when you can just love yourself instead? If you want more traditional valentine’s romance check out the book edition of my Valentine’s special!


Didn’t your mother teach you not to play with fire?
Caught you red-handed should’ve been a better liar!
I’ll make you burn like the ashes of your cigarettes
Didn’t your mother teach ya’? I’ll be the one to teach ya’

After this, the songs are mostly just about self-love, but I thought I’d throw in one for those of you who are nursing a broken heart.


Follow my heart that explodes, boom boom boom
The whole world is following me, zoom zoom zoom
It’s starting, where I meet my dream of the wow thing
It made me into something I wasn’t before, the wow thing
I’m cooler than anyone else, wow wow thing

Apart from being super empowering, this song is incredibly catchy. I especially love the instrumentation and the use of percussion + brass.


Ain’t got no tears left to cry
So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up
I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up

Another one for the broken-hearted and recovering…


I love myself
Something’s different about me, yeah
I love myself
Something’s different about me, yeah
I’m different from you, yeah

With a unique song to match their message, this is a bop for the single and the taken.


‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

Everybody knows this song, but it’s a classic so you should listen to it anyway.


I wanna be selfish
I still have a lot of wishes
I don’t wanna adjust to the standards of the world
I’m better off doing it my way

A relaxed and playful song with a powerful meaning… perfect for a pampering session with yourself, or whilst eating chocolate in bed (although I do recommend just waiting until the chocolate is discounted).

So are you doing anything this Valentine’s day? Do you like the holiday? Let me know! Lots of love, Keira x.
