If you are like me, you’ve gone through a rough break up at least once in your life. I’m not one to torch an ex’s things or to key his car – hunny, I have way more self-respect and that boy doesn’t deserve any more of my energy! Instead , this is what really happens: I hurriedly pack away the mementos and any other remnants of the relationship and I get to the being sad part. What does that look like for me? Closing the blinds and curtains, living in my pjs all weekend and balling my eyes out. If there is one thing I do, it’s loving hard. My heart literally aches and all I want is to be alone and wallow for a while. Yes people, this alpha female does have feelings and sometimes a good song articulates exactly how I feel. See, I go through stages in my grieving period, for you see ladies and gents, the end of a relationship is like a death.
I have my top break up songs that get me through the first stage: Why Me. I totally cry the entire time and just allow myself to feel bad and sad for myself. This stage is very cathartic for me!
I, like many humans am fallible and the second stage in my grieving process is: I want you back. This is when I go through the frantic process or bargaining with my thoughts and thinking that I need to have this person in order for life itself to go on!
Lastly, I get to the final stage: The Phoenix. Just as she rises from the ashes, I too rise from the despair and remember who the F@#% I am! Are you kidding me? I am a queen. A woman of excellence who knows who she is and whose she is. I will be found by an amazing man who deserves all that I bring to the table and who I can complement as well!
So there you have it, my heartbreak playlist. Do you have any songs that you listen to when going through a break up? Share with us in the comments section or on social media!
