10 Songs To Really Get You In Your Feels So You Can Dance And Cry It Out Post-Breakup

Get in your feels.

118

Breakups are never easy, especially during the holiday season.

They leave you feeling alone and like no one really understands what you are going through. It seems like you wasted so much time and effort on someone that evidently cared about you a lot less than you thought. Moving on from someone you thought you would be with forever is crushing, but as much as it hurts, it's important to remember that when you meet the right person, all of the pain you feel now will seem irrelevant.

It may hurt and feel like one of the lowest points in life, but it can feel very empowering to put headphones in and blast some music. Whether the lyrics perfectly describe how you feel, the beat makes you feel better, or it empowers you to move on, music can be very therapeutic in times of sadness and hurt.

So if you're going through a tough breakup, turn on your favorite songs for the occasion, and don't be afraid to dance, laugh, yell, or cry it out and you'll feel better before you know it! Here are a few song suggestions to help you through the tough time:

"Before You Go" by Lewis Capaldi

This is the perfect song to belt out when you're really in your feels.

"Losing You" by Karim Mika and David Shane

This one is for when you feel lost but still want to jam out a little.

"Slide Away" by Miley Cyrus

Miley really shows what it feels like to know you're better off without each other no matter how much you wish that wasn't the case in this song. When you've come to terms with the breakup but are still a little sad about it, this song hits different.

"Maniac" by Conan Gray

Maniac is one of the best songs to dance it out to. It helps let out some frustration in a fun and healthy way.

"I Fall Apart" by Post Malone

Post Malone really knows how to put people in their feels no matter what situation they're in. This song is definitely no exception.

"Shoutout to My Ex" by Little Mix

Shoutout to My Ex is the moving on anthem. It's amazing to dance to with the girls and really proves that you're better off without your ex even though you still might be a little sad.

"Miss Me More" by Kelsea Ballerini

This is a great song to listen to when you feel like you gave up so much for a relationship and got nothing in return. It's time to heal and love the strong, confident person you are without them.

"Mercy" by Brett Young

When you still love your ex and feel like the breakup dragged on way too long, this is a good song to have on repeat.

"Say Goodbye" by Skillet

If you really just need to be sad and cry it out in a dramatic music video sort of way, I would recommend putting in some headphones and blasting this song.

"Kiss Somebody" by Morgan Evans

This song is a little more country than the rest, but it's fantastic if you're ready for a rebound kind of night.

No matter what stage of a breakup you're in, there's a song out there that can put what you're feeling into words even when you can't. Hopefully, this helps you find that song so you can feel better and be ready for all the wonderful things to come.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
