We all know that one song we listen to to remind ourselves that we are worth something, but there's a plethora of positivity that you may not know about.

The Top Ten

1 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera

This heart-wrencher is perfect for this list as the Dirty Genie in a Bottle takes a piece of her heart and offers it to us through the haunting chorus.

7 Born This Way - Lady Gaga

This song takes the crown as it is an empowering message being delivered stating, "I was born this way and I can't change that" and that's perfect for our topic.

The Contenders

11 Mean - Taylor Swift

Although this one doesn't directly tell the listener about their worth, this one gives them something to sing to when they are bullied to work on that esteem.

12 Empire - of Monsters and Men

Although this song requires more decryption, it does remind the listener that "from the rain comes a river running wild that will create an empire for you", or "your individuality will give you an invincible empire on its own."

13 Try - Colbie Caillat

"You don't have to try so hard" is the phrase constantly being thrust upon us in this song about loving yourself for who you are not what others want you to be.

This beauty of a ballad represents the LGBT+ community with the resilient phrase, "I can't change even if I tried," that has become a battle cry for pro-same-sex marriage advocates.
