A Love Song to yourself and new prompt: A Very Random Challenge ~ Love Is In Da Blog 2022

Some might feel that “A love song to yourself” is a bit daft or egotistic. I, however, feel that love has to start with ourselves. How can we give love to others if we feel unloved and uncared for? So please, do not only choose a love song for yourself but also give yourself some TLC with whatever you need. You are worth it, you know!!!!

My choice for today is Jess Glynne’s “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself”. This song has gotten me through some very tough times and gives advice that I desperately need: I am always hard on myself and am just slowly learning that not to.

Wikipedia writes about Jess:

Jessica Hannah Glynne (born 20 October 1989) is an English singer and songwriter. After signing with Atlantic Records, she rose to prominence in 2014 as a featured artist on the singles “Rather Be” by Clean Bandit and “My Love” by Route 94, both of which reached number one in the UK. She was considered one of the “Most Influential People Under 30” by Forbes magazine in 2019.

Her debut studio album, I Cry When I Laugh (2015), debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and saw the international success of the singles “Hold My Hand” and “Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself”.[3] Glynne’s second studio album, Always in Between (2018), also debuted at number one in the UK and saw continued success with the singles “I’ll Be There”, “These Days”, “All I Am”, “Thursday” and “One Touch”; the first of these made Glynne the first British female solo artist to have seven number one singles on the UK Singles Chart, beating Cheryl with five. Glynne has achieved multiple accolades throughout her career, including a Grammy Award and nine Brit Award nominations...

And about the song:

“Don’t Be So Hard on Yourself” is a song by English singer and songwriter Jess Glynne. It was released as the fourth single from her debut album I Cry When I Laugh on 14 August 2015. It was written by Glynne, Wayne Hector and TMS who also produced the song. Lyrically, the song tells about moving on from hard times and “not being hard on oneself.”

The song was critically acclaimed for its lyrical content and Glynne’s vocal delivery. On 14 August 2015 the song entered the UK Singles Chart at number 78 based on streams alone, reaching number one the following week. The song became Glynne’s fifth UK number-one single (including her featured singles), tying Cheryl’s record for the most number ones by a British female solo artist.
