Sometimes the best thing to do when you're feeling down and crummy is listen to music. Whenever I'm being a bit too hard on myself, I turn to a personal playlist that is full of songs that help me remember my worth. I've listed a few of the songs here and linked the playlist below, so be sure to check these out if you ever need a confidence boost.


1. "Try" - Colbie Caillat

"Wait a second, why should you care what they think of you? When you're all alone, by yourself, do you like you?... You don't have to try so hard. You don't have to give it all away."

2. "Fight Song" - Rachel Platten

"My power's turned on. Starting right now I'll be strong. I'll play my fight song, and I don't really care if nobody else believes, 'cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me."


Human (Single Cover)


3. "Human" - Christina Perri

"I'm only human, and I bleed when I fall down. I'm only human, and I crash and I break down. Your words in my head, knives in my heart. You build me up and then I fall apart, 'cause I'm only human."

4. "I Believe" - Christina Perri

"I believe that tomorrow is stronger than yesterday. And I believe that your head is the only thing in your way. I wish that you could see your scars turn into beauty. I believe that today it's okay to be not okay. Hold on."

5. "Who Says" - Selena Gomez & The Scene

"I'm no beauty queen, I'm just beautiful me. You've got every right to a beautiful life. Who says - who says you're not perfect?"

6. "Perfect" - P!nk

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

7. "Freckles" - Natasha Bedingfield

"A face without freckles is like the sky without the stars. Why waste a second not loving who you are? Those little imperfections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable."

8. "Stand In The Rain" - Superchick

"So stand in the rain, stand your ground. Stand up when it's all crashing down. You stand through the pain, you won't drown, and one day what's lost can be found."





9. "Sloppy Seconds" - Watsky

"Hand me downs. Give me, give me leftovers. Give me, give me sloppy seconds. Give 'em here, give 'em here. I don't care where you've been, how many miles, I still love you."

10. "Don't Be So Hard On Yourself" - Jess Glynne

"The wounds heal, and tears dry, and cracks - they don't show. So don't be so hard on yourself, no. Let's go back to simplicity, I feel like I've been missing me."

11. "Put Your Records On" - Corinne Bailey Rae

"Girl put your records on. Tell me your favorite song. You go ahead let your hair down. Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams. Just go ahead, let your hair down. You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow"

12. "Titanium" - David Guetta Ft. Sia

"I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose. Fire away, fire away. Ricochet, you take your aim. Fire away, fire away. Shoot me down, but I won't fall. I am titanium."

13. "Love Myself" - Hailee Steinfeld

"I'll take it nice and slow. Feeling good on my own, without you."

14. "Girl On Fire" - Alicia Keys

"Looks like a girl but she's a flame - so bright she can burn your eyes. Better look the other way. You can try, but you'll never forget her name. She's on top of the world - hottest of the hottest girls."

15. "Roar" - Katy Perry

"You held me down, but I got up, already brushing off the dust. You hear my voice? You hear that sound? Like thunder, gonna shake the ground."

16. "The Climb" - Miley Cyrus

"But I, I gotta be strong. Just keep pushing on. 'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain. I'm always gonna wanna make it move. Always gonna be an uphill battle."

17. "Burning Gold" - Christina Perri

"Looking back, I see I had the flame in me. I'm the wind that's carrying change. I've had enough of chasing luck. I need, I need a change. I'm setting fire to the life that I know."


19. “Sit Still, Look Pretty” - Daya

"I don't know what you've been told, but this girl right here's gonna rule the world. Yeah, that is where I'm gonna be, 'cause I wanna be. No, I don't wanna sit still, look pretty."

19. "Warrior" - Demi Lovato

"I was broken and bruised. But now I'm a warrior. Now I've got thicker skin. I'm a warrior. I'm stronger than I've ever been. And my armor is made of steel, you can't get in. I'm a warrior, and you can never hurt me again."



20. "Rag Doll" - Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

"Rag doll, I love you just the way you are."

    What The 2019 'Season Of The Crab' Means For Your Zodiac Sign

    It could be a super emotional month for everyone.

    50
    views

    It's officially summer, and that means it's time to dive into the watery depths of Cancer season on June 21. There is a different energy in the air; different from the vibe in Gemini season. Each sign can expect to notice its effects, whether they are obvious or more subtle.

    Cancer season means you're probably going to feel more moody than usual. Maybe you're crying more often. Maybe you'll feel more dreamy and intuitive. Maybe you'll be more irritable. Whatever the case, it never hurts to know what you're about to get yourself into.

    So what does Cancer season mean for you, based on your zodiac sign?

    1. Cancer - 21 Jun to 22 Jul

    @rebeccahmac_

    Happy solar return, cutie crustacean!

    This is one of the dreamiest times of the entire year for you, but lacking structure and planning could prove stressful. You're in an imaginative zone and you may not feel like settling down before chasing the stars, but you must think ahead so things will work out.

    2. Leo - 23 Jul to 22 Aug

    @lolasuxs

    Cancer season will find you exploring who you want to become, and what you want to leave behind. With your season just around the corner, this is also a magical time for healing and exploring yourself. Journaling, creative pursuits, or talking things through are wonderful ways to nourish your soul.

    3. Virgo - 23 Aug to 22 Sep

    @nahomi.17

    This Cancer season, you'll find that the stars and the moon are asking you to rest. You will be faced with many choices and decisions this month. Enjoy your time fostering whatever creativity comes to mind. Do not force yourself to go out if you're not feeling up to it. It's okay to be you and be alone sometimes.

    4. Libra - 23 Sep to 22 Oct

    @tiiffahh

    Cancer season and Neptune retrograde begin on June 21, causing you to need to pause and reflect on your goals. Change can be uncomfortable, but every small shift brings us closer to our goals. Be willing to take a risk, and let the universe push you in the direction of happiness and adventure.

    5. Scorpio - 23 Oct to 21 Nov

    @jordansavannah_r

    Cancer season finds you traveling and opening new doors of opportunity. Are you really gaining anything by holding onto the past so tightly, Scorpio? Set your sights on new dreams, and leave all those people and situations that are holding you back in your rearview mirror.

    6. Sagittarius - 22 Nov to 21 Dec

    @zelzhcabbage

    The question Cancer season asks you now, Sag, is whether you'll run away from your past, cling on to it, or do the emotional work necessary to process it and let it go. Appreciate the memories you are making and try not to get too wrapped up in the little things that annoy you. This is a time for experimentation.

    7. Capricorn - 22 Dec to 19 Jan

    @xxadriiana

    You love your deadlines and goals, but remember that taking care of your emotional health will ultimately help you be more efficient! Trust your intuition, take it slow, and use the energy for play and creativity rather than detailed planning.

    8. Aquarius - 20 Jan to 19 Feb

    @yeeshibee

    Cancer season this year is all about being comfortable and doing what you know, so go ahead and stick to that. This is also a great time for you to check in with yourself when it comes to wellness and your habits.

    9. Pisces - 20 Feb to 20 Mar

    @stephdangle

    This Cancer season, the heightened emotion that is in the air will bring you natural happiness. Go out, have a wonderful night under the summer stars, and use your experiences for inspiration. It will reinvigorate your soul to be more creative and more adventurous.

    10. Aries - 21 Mar to 19 Apr

    @marilang_

    Cancer season finds you focused squarely on your personal life. It's a wonderful time for an adventure. Go on that hike. Wake up early and drive to the beach. You'll feel an inclination to do it all-- and you can! Remind yourself that you are capable.

    It will be hard to stay focused because the vibe just feels so good, but Neptune's retrograde brings intriguing messages to your dreams, so pay close attention to your inner voice at this time.

    11. Taurus - 20 Apr to 20 May

    @belendenike

    Cancer season causes emotions to be even more extreme so you'll probably reach your breaking point this month, Taurus, but you are never alone in the problems that you face. Remember to control your temper long enough to cool off and take some relaxation for yourself.

    Take a day off and drive around with the windows down. Take five days off and drive to the beach to hang out and reflect. Whatever it is that you need to feel better, it is time to do it this month.

    12. Gemini - 21 May to 20 Jun

    @nicolenaone

    Cancer is a sign that's all about security and protection, and you're really feeling those vibes right now. Your confidence is running high, as you are feeling more in control of your life. Get rid of the elements in your life that won't propel you forward.

    Just as the moon and ocean cycle, so do we. Cancer is that strong energy that gets you up in your feels; it's sure to be a ride.
