Music Mondays: Not a Bad Thing, by Justin Timberlake

Welcome to song  number 4 of Music Mondays, the soundtrack for your journey to self love.See the first song here, the second song here and the third here

This song is supposed to be a love song to someone with whom you’ve fallen madly and deeply in love, asking for a chance to be their forever, asking that they envision a life with you in which broken promises don’t exist, in which you are their biggest supporter, in which you will both keep them grounded and give them wings. It truly epitomizes the type of love we all wrote down in our journals and vision boards, which is to find someone who marvels at you like you were cut from a piece of the heavens.

But the thing that I have learned in this journey of self-compassion is that you cannot believe in what you do not see in yourself. It doesn’t matter how many times a person will tell you that they need you in their life, your self-loathing will convince you that you are forever unwanted and should not believe any good thing said about you, that you are the frog whose curse no one will ever be able to break; all this while you are desperately yearning for someone to validate and rescue you. Absurd isn’t it?

So I invite you to be your own knight in shining armor, to climb your own ivory tower to rescue yourself from years of self doubt and self-loathing. Let this song be your anthem to discovering that “it’s not a bad thing to fall in love with you”. Watch your life change as you unearth the power there is in being your own source of abundant love.

Favorite part: Don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me

you might look around and find your dreams come true with me

Spend all your time and your money just to find out that my love was free
