11 Songs For People Who Use Music To Deal With Their Feelings

11 Songs For People Who Use Music To Deal With Their Feelings

Because music can make anything better

We all experience sadness and anger for all kinds of different reasons and in all kinds of different stages. There are many ways to cope with these feelings and emotions, such as watching sad or funny movies, writing in journals, or drawing. Some people, myself included, prefer listening to music that relates to what we're feeling at that very moment. So, for all of those people, here are some songs that I think are perfect for certain feelings:

1. "A World Alone" by Lorde

Everyone reaches a time in their life when they feel like everyone around them, maybe even their friends, is fake. This song perfectly describes that empty feeling you get when you realize you can't trust anyone.

2. "Boston" by Augustana

This one is for people who feel out of place at school, work, or in their town. For people who know they have to get out in order to be happy, because they've never belonged where they are.

3. "Hanging On" by Ellie Goulding

For those of you who are having relationship problems, this one expresses the feeling of not understanding what went wrong, and not knowing what to do about it.

4. "My Blood" by Ellie Goulding

This describes the initial shock of a bad, and likely unexpected, breakup. The feeling that none of it is real and it can't really be happening.

5. "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia

This song is perfect to listen to if you're in the phase of a breakup where you're still in denial. But you also know it's real, and you just can't stop crying over it.

6. "My Immortal" by Evanescence

To me, this illustrates bitterness over a betrayal. So, if you're angry about being hurt by someone you loved and really cared about, I highly recommend this one.

7. "Hello" by Adele

This one is new and very popular, and I think it relates particularly to people who realize they've messed up by hurting someone they loved but know it's too late to take it all back.

8. "Last Love Song" by ZZ Ward

This is the perfect song for the acceptance stage of a breakup. It's over and it's done with and there's no going back. It's a great "goodbye forever" song.

9. "Smile" by Lily Allen

This one is my personal favorite because there's nothing sad about it. It reminds me of what I like to call the "Salty Stage" of a breakup, which is when you're angry but you also find the entire situation to be so ridiculous that it's amusing. Your anger comes out in the form of sass, and it just feels great. Excuse the language in the beginning, but this song is on point.

10. "Carry On" by Fun

This is a very motivational song, and the lyrics basically say that no matter what you're going through you can move on from it, and it's going to be OK.

11. "Elastic Heart" by Sia (Ft. The Weeknd)

The message of this song serves as the perfect reminder to those who have been hurt before that it's important to enter new relationships with caution, to watch out for red flags, and to protect yourself.

I think that listening to music is the best outlet for your emotions. If you pick the right song for what you're feeling, it's as if the song was written just for you. It feels like the artist has been through what you're going through and knows exactly how you feel. I've always found it amazing that one song can change my whole outlook on a situation or even life in general. I hope it can do the same for you, too.

Christian Boys Vs. Godly Men

It is time to stop settling for the lesser of the two.

Ladies, there is a huge difference between a Christian boy and a Godly man; therefore, it is time to stop settling for the lesser of the two.

So many times I hear girls saying:

“Well, he’s a Christian.”

“He goes to church with me.”

“He listens to Christian music.”

“He went to church camp.”

“He has a favorite bible verse.”

Well, all of those things are just peachy and there is nothing wrong with doing those things. I mean, they’re all good things to do. But how is his personal relationship with God? How is his prayer life? Does he talk about his relationship with God, with you? Is he truly a follower of the one true God in all aspects of his life? These are some of the characteristics you should be looking for that makes a Godly man.

Ladies, a man will love you great when he loves God greater.

A Godly man will pursue an honest relationship with you. He will be clear of his intentions. A Godly man will worship, pray and passionately praise God with you. Whereas, a Christian boy might open the door for you, a Godly man will open his bible and explore God’s word with you so that you both may grow spiritually, together. While a Christian boy may put on an outward show, a Godly man will live out the love of Jesus daily.

So ladies, are you catching on to this ongoing trend? A Godly man does more because you deserve more.

A Godly man will be a leader. Trust me, I know that in today’s society Godly men are few and far between while Christian boys come in plenty. But you deserve a man who is after God’s heart not just a boy who goes to church. And I know that this Christian boy may seem great and have some really stellar qualities at the time but money and looks fade, whereas, an ongoing love for our savior will not.

The greatest thing a man can do for a woman is to lead her closer to God than himself. (Yes, yes, yes).

So I beg of you, do not settle. Do not settle just because you’re tired of being single, it’s convenient or because you want the relationship your friend has. Single does not equal available and a relationship status does not define you. God uses your season of singleness to prepare you for what is to come. And if you’re dating a Christian boy, he needs to step it up or you need to move on. Wait for a Godly man who is ready to lead you. God’s timing is always better, always. No matter the circumstance. So, do not rush God. (I mean, He is, after all, pretty good at His job). Therefore, turn your full focus to Him and He will direct your path.

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33

Poetry On The Odyssey: Chasing Daffodils

My Vision Is Clear


In the day we chase daffodils

cradling their petals oh so delicately

as they fan their beauty in the sunlight

we hold white knuckled hands

ambling through the meadow

care free

but as the sky grows dark

and our vision blurs

that hand grows claws

painful to the touch, we release each other

and take off,

running so swiftly from the bears and the wolves and the vultures

that we forget to open our eyes

and find strength in each other

To combat these demons

with the force of a thousand warriors,

instead of silhouettes dancing in the night
