It hasn't been very long since we went our separate ways and this subject is still a very sore one. But somehow, after losing my best friend, I am making it through. These songs are either something that sticks out because the words are something that I feel or just make me cry more(it's called healing people!!) Overall, these tunes are great and worth the listen for anyone.
1. I Fall Apart by Post Malone
The feeling of never being able to recover or come back after a loss like this. This song makes me think about the fact that you have to fall apart to build yourself back up and better than ever. This song meant nothing, in a serious way, until this breakup. These lyrics represent all of the feelings I have had at one point or another through this breakup.
2. Die From A Broken Heart by Maddie and Tae
This song represents how I am making it through these weeks. My mom is my rock through everything especially in a time like this. And my dad is the type to want to make things "right" with the boy who broke my heart. Is my heart really broken? No, but I was stunned at the idea of him leaving me so easily, making this song hit close to home.
3. Preach by John Legend
This song helps to remind me that changes need to be made before much of anything can happen. There is no point in going back to him when I am still the same way and he is too. The deep emotion also portrayed in this song is something that I identified with and felt connected by.
4. 1 Sided Love by Blackbear
This one is pretty literal. It truly was a one-sided love that we had and I hope to find someone in the future who gives me what I give to them. College boys aren't ready for the kind of love that I am looking for and I have decided there's no point in wasting my time when the "right one" is most likely not even ready to meet me yet.
5. Changed My Mind by Tove Stryke
Our love had always been a rollercoaster ride of yes and no. We were never really sure about each other until I was. I gave all that I possibly could once I decided he was what I wanted, but it wasn't enough.
All of these songs are amazing and each spoke a different message that I either related to or found noteworthy. They can be applied to most situations, self-love, breakups and friend breakups. I am thankful for the support system that has also gotten me through this.
