Lyrics:

Beautiful daughter
I know that kids can be cruel
Try to make you feel ashamed
And call you names at school
But I’mma drop some jewels
Some wisdom that you can use
So you won’t grow up confused
And verbally abused
Realize,
There will be people who criticize
Bullies who talk about your weight, color, and size
But beauty comes in every size, color, and shape
And your beauty can’t be measured with that measuring tape
Remember,
Your worth isn’t determined by your weight
And you should never hate
What It took God to create
You’re young, smart, and beautiful
And it would behoove you
Not to be concerned with how others may view you
Don’t focus on your looks
Read books to improve you
In life don’t rely on other people’s approval
In life there’s no limit to the things you can achieve
So repeat these words after me:

I’m beautiful
I’m worthy
And those mean words
Can’t hurt me
I’m priceless
I’m smart
And I love myself
I’m focused on my health

My oldest daughter says she skinny like a stick
And because she’s thin
There are times when she wishes she was thick
And she knows that I’m attracted to women who are bigger
But I tell her that a woman is much more than her figure
So don’t hate your body and criticize your weight
Because beauty comes in every size, color, and shape
Learn to be your body’s number one supporter
Because negative thoughts lead to eating disorders
So treat yourself like somebody you love
And speak to yourself like somebody you love
Love your body size zero or above
And get rid of any thoughts that say you’re not enough
I know the hardest lesson is learning to love yourself
But eat right, exercise, and focus on your health
I know life can be a struggle
Which is why I always hug you
And remind you every day that I love you
Now say:

I’m beautiful
I’m worthy
And those mean words
Can’t hurt me
I’m priceless
I’m smart
And I love myself
I’m focused on my health

I dedicate this song to every boy and girl
To every child whose been bullied throughout the world
Don’t ever think that you’re worthless
Your life has a purpose
There are better days ahead
So don’t get discouraged
Be confident
No matter where you come from
Because it’s not where you’re from
It’s who you’re destined to become
Never give up on your dreams
No matter how hard it seems
And don’t allow mean words
To lower your self-esteem
You can overcome Obstacles
Nothings impossible
Build up your confidence you’ll be unstoppable
You can achieve
What your mind can conceive
Work hard and most importantly always believe
And to my daughters
It’s been such a blessing watching you grow
I’m your father so to me you’ll always be beautiful
Just remember all the words that I said in this song
So you can play them back after I’m dead and gone
Now say:

I’m beautiful
I’m worthy
And those mean words
Can’t hurt me
I’m priceless
I’m smart
And I love myself
I’m focused on my health

“Love Yourself” is an anti-bullying song that I wrote for my daughter, Nia, after she was bullied at school. I quickly resolved the issue, but I saw how the bullying had a negative affect on my daughter. As a result, I decided to create a song about the importance of self-love: an anthem with positive affirmations that children could recite daily, reminding themselves that they are beautiful, worthy, priceless, and brilliant.

I wanted to include special needs children in the video after speaking with my friend, Alicia Coleman, whose daughter “Ava,” is autistic. I learned that special needs children are frequently targeted and bullied. So I invited children with various disabilities including Hearing Impairments, Autism, Down Syndrome, Dyslexia, PTSD and ADHD and to appear in the video along with their siblings.

I hope this song and video empowers children who have been abused, bullied, and belittled, to build up their confidence, embrace who they are, and love themselves unconditionally.

    Thank you for being such a positive figure. I've been struggling with my weight's ups & downs & low self-esteem for over 3 decades. I wish I had heard music like this in my grade & high school years maybe I'd be a different confident person now.
