Loving Your Self: 14 Songs to Celebrate Your Worth

Loving Your Self: 14 Songs to Celebrate Your Worth

Hi! Claire here, and I'm exited to share with you my list of 14 Songs to celebrate your worth.

Growing up I was constantly singing and coming home to houses that always had music playing. Although my mom and dad were divorced when I was 2, I’m realizing at this very moment that this was something nice they always had in common! So it surprises me that sometimes I’ll go weeks without listening to music in my life now! 

I chalk it up to being busy and having a job that keeps me on the phone all day, but when I finally get the urge to turn on some tunes, I remind myself how powerful they can be.

A good song is always there for you no matter the circumstances. You can just pop on your headphones and disconnect from everything going on in your life. Even if it's just for five minutes, a good song makes me feel like I can be anything, anywhere, and oftentimes, they help to transport me into a mindset of manifestation and building how I want to see myself and my world.

So although this isn't exhaustive, I want to share with you a list of songs from some of my favorite singers to help give you a dose of positivity!

“Who You Are” - Jessie J

We all have those moments when we feel following our dreams is a hopeless quest, but we are also not meant to fit in society’s mold. Yes, it is demanding to take the first step and decide to follow your dreams. And, it is even more challenging to show up every day and push yourself when you are not seeing the expected results. 

"Who You Are" by Jessie J is a soul-stirring song that portrays the importance of dreaming. The song points out that everyone is struggling and no one’s life is perfect. Even when you are afraid to look into the mirror and accept yourself with your imperfections, remember, “It’s okay not to be okay”.

The song goes like this…

“Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!

Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing

It's okay not to be okay

Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart

But tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising

There's nothing wrong with who you are! 

This heartfelt ballad carries a profound message of self-reliance, reminding us that it’s crucial to dream and believe especially in difficult times. So if you are having hard times, close your eyes and play this beautiful song. You will find hope and courage to try again.

“I Love Me” – Meghan T

The truth is, you will have tons of silent supporters and loud haters in your journey. Because the haters are always loud, sometimes it will be difficult to stop them from distracting you. You need to maintain your determination amidst unwanted people's opinions.

In those extremely low moments, try the song "I Love Me" by Meghan Trainor. It is an energetic song with irresistible beats and influential lyrics. It will definitely become your self-love anthem for the week.

The song's message revolves around the importance of embracing oneself and celebrating personal growth. Meghan Trainor inspires listeners to prioritize their own happiness and well-being above external opinions or societal standards. "I Love Me" reminds you that you are worthy of love, respect, and self-care, regardless of any perceived flaws or imperfections.

The song's lyrics speak for themselves…

"They'll try to play me like a game

I bet they're too scared of the fame

But I can see it clearer when I'm lookin' in the mirror

Saying God made me just right"

Its catchy chorus and motivational lyrics encourage you to break free from the shackles of self-doubt and embrace your true self. Everyone faces challenges and setbacks, but self-worth is not solely based on external achievements. Rather it is based on personal growth and tenacity to survive.

To me, the song's empowering message centers on the significance of self-love and the celebration of individual growth. Meghan Trainor's lyrics serve as a poignant reminder for listeners to prioritize their happiness and well-being over external opinions or societal norms. "I Love Me" echoes the affirmation that everyone is deserving of love, respect, and self-care, irrespective of any perceived flaws or imperfections. As you embrace this uplifting anthem, consider exploring the offerings at Soul Spheres—a platform that resonates with the essence of celebrating life and individuality.

"The Climb" by Miley Cyrus

While I love me some modern day Miley, I'll say that this one still gets me. You are your mightiest enemy. Yes, it is true. The voice in your head, your own worst critic constantly criticizing your every move and overanalyzing your mistakes. Your faith in yourself falters. At those moments, when you need just a little push listen to this song, "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus.  

The song starts with relatable lyrics…

"I can almost see it

That dream I'm dreaming

But there's a voice inside my head saying

You'll never reach it"

But the songs ultimately make you realize it is about the journey, the effort you put in, the challenges you overcome, and the courage with which you show up every day to try again. 

"There's always gonna be another mountain

I'm always gonna wanna make it move" 

Someday you will win and someday you will lose. And that’s okay. You are growing every day. You will compare yourself with others. You will be disheartened. You will feel helpless. But that’s part of your process. The most crucial thing is to get up once again.

At the end of the song, it concludes with…

"It's all about, it's all about the climb

Keep your faith, keep your faith"

The song lyrics poignantly capture the essence of personal growth and grit. It encourages you to embrace the obstacles you face as stepping stones. "The Climb" speaks to the universal human experience of facing setbacks, doubts, and fears. 

“Unstoppable” by Sia

In your journey, it is important to be vulnerable, accept your mistakes, and reflect on them to achieve your true potential. But it is also true that sometimes, in certain places, and situations, you have to act strong, take responsibility, and be absolutely invincible. 

"Unstoppable" by Sia is an invigorating and empowering song that can profoundly enhance my sense of self-worth. This anthemic track carries a strong message of resilience and inner strength, inspiring listeners to rise above adversity if the situation demands it.

Sia's commanding vocals and dynamic production with powerful affirmations create a sense of empowerment that resonates deeply with listeners. You will understand that with this small section of the lyrics…

"I'm unstoppable

I'm a Porsche with no brakes

I'm invincible

Yeah, I win every single game

I'm so powerful

I don't need batteries to play

I'm so confident

Yeah, I'm unstoppable today"

This song resonates with that inherent version of ourselves—when we embody invincibility, fierceness, and fearlessness. It serves as a powerful antidote to self-esteem issues, encouraging you to wholeheartedly embrace your authentic self without apology, disregarding external criticism. Let the music be a catalyst to ignite the flames within, constantly reminding you of your innate power and boundless potential.

As you immerse yourself in this empowering anthem, consider exploring the offerings at Soul Spheres. I consider this as a bespoke movement that aligns with the essence of celebrating individual strength and authenticity through beautifully-crafted jewelries. Just as the song inspires self-empowerment, we provide a unique way to honor loved ones and celebrate life authentically. 

“I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor

"I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor is a timeless and enlivening song from the 1970s that serves as a fantastic tool to overcome hopelessness. This iconic disco song has become an anthem of persistence and bravery, resonating with individuals who have faced having to step into becoming an independent woman and come out stronger on the other side.

The song has powerful lyrics and an upbeat rhythm creating an atmosphere of determination and confidence. It tells a story of triumph over heartbreak and empowers listeners to instill a sense of self-assurance and resilience. 

“At first, I was afraid, I was petrified

Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side

But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong

And I grew strong

And I learned how to get along”

"Survivor" by Destiny's Child

Imagine you have someone who takes up a large portion of your life. Suddenly they are gone. Betrayal, different goals, compatibility issues, maybe you just grew apart, or it was a toxic relationship. How do you feel in those situations? You are empty. It can even get difficult to breathe. 

Most people have experienced such phases in their life when they are lonely, broken, empty, and trying desperately to fill that gap. 

The song “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child address this very situation. It starts with very relatable lyrics… 

"Thought I couldn't breathe without you

I'm inhaling

You thought I couldn't see without you

Perfect vision

You thought I couldn't last without you

But I'm lastin'"

After a few weeks and months, you start to realize, it is possible to live without that person. You are an empty canvas now but you can draw anything you want to make your life colorful again. With an empty canvas, the possibilities are endless. 


"Roar" by Katy Perry

It takes courage to speak up for yourself and it takes time to build your confidence. But once you are in charge of your actions and confident in your message the world listens to you. The song “Roar” by Katy Perry demonstrates exactly that. 

Let me elaborate and quote its lyrics…

“You held me down, but I got up (hey)

Get ready 'cause I've had enough

I see it all, I see it now I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter

Dancing through the fire

'Cause I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar”

The song's catchy melody and captivating chorus have struck a chord with many listeners. It has a memorable hook that sticks in your head and makes you want to sing along (at least, I know I do!).

If you want to listen to this one, I suggest looking at the music video, as it's a very cute and vibrant showcasing Katy Perry in a jungle setting, where she goes through a transformation from being weak and vulnerable to becoming strong and confident. It visually complements the song's message and adds an extra layer of symbolism to the overall experience.

"Roar" encourages people to face challenges, especially those brought on through people that are holding us back, head-on, and with vigor!

"Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift

Do you sometimes feel that people are going to throw their judgment at you no matter what you do? And most of the time you don’t even ask for their opinion in the first place. We all know the truth is that you can't make everyone happy and that should not be your goal, but that doesn't always make it easy in reality. 

The song “Shake It Off” By Taylor Swift will help you get over people’s unsolicited opinions with its acute, fierce, and relatable message from one of today's strongest independent women. It will encourage you to embrace your individuality and not let negativity or criticism get to you, because, from the wise words of my late grand-mother-in-law, "other's people opinions are none of your business. 

“I shake it off, I shake it off

Heartbreakers gonna break

Fakers gonna fake

I'm just gonna shake

I shake it off, I shake it off"

This powerful message resonated with many people, especially young people who were going through similar experiences of judgment or peer pressure. The music video for "Shake It Off" further enhances its impact. The video showcases Taylor Swift's playful and humorous side as she embraces various dance styles and pokes fun at the media's portrayal of her. 

Overall, "Shake It Off" holds a special place in Taylor Swift's discography and in the hearts of Swifties worldwide. Much like the empowering message conveyed in "Shake It Off," there's a unique and tangible way to carry that sentiment with you, like our Solid 14k Gold Soul Sphere Necklace—a piece that encapsulates the spirit of resilience and self-acceptance. This exquisite necklace is more than just jewelry; it's a symbol of embracing one's true self despite external judgments. 

"Skyscraper" by Demi Lovato

Every challenge you face will seem doable if you have a strong foundation. Just like a magnificent skyscraper. It defines the skyline and faces every weather calamity head-on. You have got such spirits in yourself. Your low self-esteem and self-doubt cycles are only a part of your journey, not the definition of who you are and what you are capable of. 

So let’s celebrate our willpower, our foundations, with the next song on the list, "Skyscraper" by Demi Lovato.  

The song lyrics speak for themselves…

"Go on and try to tear me down

I will be rising from the ground

Like a skyscraper"

This song holds a significant place in Demi Lovato's career and has resonated with millions of people around the world. It was released in 2011, shortly after Demi Lovato went through some challenging times in her life. The song talks about her journey of overcoming struggles, finding her willpower, and rising above adversity. 

The song's message of hope and a can-do attitude is incredibly relatable. The lyrics speak to anyone who has ever felt broken, lost, or overwhelmed by life's obstacles. This message of self-empowerment has resonated deeply with people from all walks of life, making it a source of comfort and inspiration.

So, whether it's the personal connection Demi Lovato has to the song, the universal message of hope and perseverance, the powerful vocal performance, or the lasting impact it has had on listeners, "Skyscraper" is undeniably special. 

"Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera

Just imagine a world where everyone is doing just fine, with no insecurities, and where they make no mistakes. Idyllic, perhaps, but definitely boring... What are you going to brag about in your late seventies to your grandkids if you were perfect in your early years? So, let’s all take a pause and remind ourselves that our imperfections, insecurities, mistakes, and scars make us magnificent. And I think this song is the perfect one to celebrate this fact. 

"Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera is a self-addressed love song - you can be your own biggest fan. It delivers a message of self-acceptance, empowerment, and embracing one's individuality. It encourages you to embrace your true self and not be influenced by societal standards or the judgment of others.

"I am beautiful no matter what they say

Words can't bring me down

I am beautiful in every single way"

"Beautiful" of course stands out because of Christina Aguilera's incredible vocal performance. The raw passion and vulnerability in her voice add depth and authenticity to the lyrics, making it a truly memorable experience for listeners. On top of that, this song became an anthem for the LGBTQ+ community and individuals facing various forms of discrimination. The song's universal message of self-love and acceptance struck a chord with many people who felt marginalized or judged for being different. "Beautiful" continues to serve as a source of inspiration, reminding people that they are beautiful just the way they are and should be proud of their uniqueness.

"Titanium" by David Guetta ft. Sia

"Titanium" by David Guetta ft. Sia is a collaboration between two incredibly talented artists and is one of my favorite songs - especially for tough times. It continues to be cherished by fans around the world and remains a standout song in both David Guetta and Sia's discographies.

"Titanium" truly stands out because of its inspiriting and impactful message. Sia's powerful vocals add an emotional depth to the song. The lyrics speak about integrity of character and diligence in the face of adversity. 

“I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose

Fire away, fire away

Ricochet, you take your aim

Fire away, fire away

You shoot me down, but I won't fall

I am titanium”

Musically, "Titanium" is a perfect blend of electronic and pop elements. The energetic beats, catchy melodies, and powerful chorus make it an absolute crowd-pleaser. It has a distinct sound that captivates listeners and gets them hooked from the very beginning.

"Titanium" is noteworthy because it combines the talents of two extraordinary artists with an inspiring message and an appealing sound. Listen to it, and you may just find the motivation to give yourself one more chance.

Love Myself - Hailey Steinfeld

"Love Myself" by Hailee Steinfeld is a self-empowerment anthem that resonates with everyone going through separation and heartbreak. The song encapsulates a strong message of self-love and encourages listeners to find validation within themselves. Let’s not forget, its compelling pop beat and catchy lyrics that may just be the inspiration you need to reinvent yourself.

By emphasizing the importance of self-love and embracing individuality, "Love Myself" tells us to shed insecurities and embrace our true selves. 

You can find it in the lyrics itself...

“Gonna love myself, no, I don't need anybody else (hey)

Gonna love myself, no, I don't need anybody else (I love me)

Can't help myself, no, I don't need anybody else

Anytime that I like

(I love me)”

The song's positive and thought-provoking energy serves as a reminder that self-love comes from within. It inspires individuals to embark on a journey of self-discovery, reminding them that they deserve love and respect - that the greatest love is in fact self-love.

“Fight Song” - Rachel Platten

The song “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten portrays the excruciating journey of raising back up from absolute rock bottom. This theme of dedication and determination strikes a chord with people who may be going through challenging times or facing adversity in their lives. 

You may think your existence is insignificant, your voice is not heard or your actions do nothing to impact the world. But a culmination of all the small efforts creates ripples that can alter the flow of the mightiest river.

“Like a small boat

On the ocean

Sending big waves

Into motion

I might only have one match

But I can make an explosion

And I don't really care if nobody else believes

'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me”


The song features a powerful and energetic melody, coupled with Rachel Platten's passionate vocals. The combination of the lyrics and the music creates an emotional and poignant experience for the listeners, inspiring them to push forward. Better days are coming.

“Fight Song" is a truly standout track for its positive and motivating message, its infectious melody, and its ability to touch the lives of listeners who find solace and spirit in its verses. It can be your emblem of empowerment and a source of inspiration. Listen to it at least once!

“Scars to Your Beautiful” - Alessia Cara

Issues with body image and the shame around it have always been critical and controversial. While several brands and commercials promote a certain body type to be ideal for women, Alessia Cara showcases that it is not even remotely related to the truth. 

Most of us, at some point in our lives, have considered ways to change ourselves to fit into the mold defined by big companies and brands. We were not comfortable in our own skin. 

“She says, beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything

What's a little bit of hunger?

I could go a little while longer, she fades away.”

Alessia Cara's powerful and soulful vocals bring an emotional depth to the song, making it even more impactful. The lyrics are predominant and deliver a message of accepting one’s body. They remind us that everyone has their own scars and imperfections, but those are what makes us authentic and stunning.

“You should know you're beautiful just the way you are

And you don't have to change a thing

The world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful

We're stars and we're beautiful”

This verse has become an anthem for various movements promoting body positivity and inclusivity. It has resonated with individuals from different backgrounds, genders, and ages creating a sense of unity and empowerment.
