11 Lyrics From The Chicks' New 'Gaslighter' Album That'll Empower You Post-Breakup

To be honest, I didn't know a whole lot about The Chicks since they dropped the "Dixie" part of their name, but I saw their new album, "Gaslighter" trending literally everywhere online and had to check it out! I'm glad I did because there are definitely some lyrics from the songs on the new album (listen here) that will soon be your go-to lines to empower anyone post-breakup.

1. "You made your bed and then your bed caught fire." - "Gaslighter"

Perfect for the guy who made his choice.

This hits so hard! He made his choices, and now he has to live with them.

2. "How do you tell those lies? Lookin' me in the eye. Livin' a double life." - "Sleep At Night"

Perfect for the guy who just didn't care.

If he can't own up to it, he didn't care. You do you, girl. Head up and move on.

3. "Save your tired stories for your new someone else." - "Gaslighter"

Perfect for the guy who always wanted to play the victim.

Girl, you don't need his sorry excuses because they're just that: excuses.

4. "Can't go back in time to change in someone's eyes. No, I was not something to play with." - "Everybody Loves You"

Perfect for the guy who didn't take things seriously.

Ladies, remember that you are worth it, and if a guy makes you fight for his attention or makes you feel inferior/plays with your emotions, it's so not worth the hurt.

5. "Wish I could go back and tell my younger self. 'You're a fighter, you just don't know it yet.'" - "For Her"

Perfect for the guy who totally broke you.

There's going to be that guy who completely breaks you, and it's going to hurt. Don't forget, though, that you will love again. Trust me, "it'll happen when you least expect it" isn't just a cliché ideal.

6. "Oh, I'm an army of one. March, march to my own drum." - "March March"

Perfect for the guy who tried to change you.

You are you, and that's the best thing you can possibly be!

7. "I see a wildfire comin'. Burnin' the world that I've known. Watch me, watch me outrun it. Take what I need and go." - "My Best Friend's Wedding"

Perfect for the guy who seemed nice but was actually toxic.

Toxic is toxic, period. There is not justification for it.

8. "Just because you've been a bad guy. I've seen it with my own eyes. There's a good guy in there. Decency. Would be for you to sign and release me." - "Set Me Free"

Perfect for the guy who continues to play games post-breakup.

There's usually an ex along the way who continues to act like nothing is wrong post-breakup, and these lyrics are for that moment where you finally realize that he's just not being a good guy.

9. "Gave up on the moon and back. Thought you'd found a better half. Ah, I hope it's something good." - "Hope It's Something Good"

Perfect for the guy who left you for someone "better."

There's always the unlucky breakup where he leaves you because he "found someone better." This is the ultimate line to show him how great you were and show that mature side.

10. "You know he's about to leave, but don't panic. Don't give him the satisfaction that you can't handle it." - "Julianna Calm Down"

Perfect for the guy who is going to prompt the breakup.

You're strong. You existed before him and will exist after him.

11. "Just put on, put on, put on your best shoes." - "Julianna Calm Down"

Perfect for the guy who really doesn't understand what he lost.

Girl, go out, have fun and be you!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

351

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
