We've all been there, haven't we? A tough break-up that causes us to question everything, the world as we know it almost falling apart as we grieve the future we planned. It's not typically an easy time for anyone, even when we're the ones who end things... sometimes, we even go back to what was comfortable with that person because we don't know how else to cope.
It can be frustrating to find anyone who understands, but for me, at least, that's where music comes into play. Finding someone that understands your situation and puts it into words can be an invaluable feeling. Even if the artist doesn't know you personally, knowing that someone has felt the same way you do is incredibly comforting.
There are a lot of emotions felt through break-ups and I wanted to put together a bit of a landing strip for all of you that might be going through something right now, particularly from a female perspective. Whatever you're feeling, you're not alone, and I hope these songs can help to prove it to you.
When you wish you could hate them to make things easier, but you just can't:
When they cheated and then tried to turn it around on you:
When you really just wish they could've been better to you:
When you loved them, but you love your freedom more:
When you're tired of the lies:
When you're shattered, watching them move on:
When no one's quite as good:
When you need an anthem:
When you need to hear it's going to be okay:
When you feel better than ever:
And last but not least...
When you want them back:
Whatever you're feeling, it's valid. It'll get easier, just give yourself time and take care of yourself... and feel free to listen to these songs whenever you need them! What songs would you add to this list?
