Songs I Listened To Post-Breakup

Monday, May 6, 2019


When we were going through the ups and downs that inevitably happen due to a breakup, I couldn't listen to music anymore.  The one place I used to find refuge felt like a minefield, ready to remind me of what I no longer had. Every song change threatened to throw me into a depression or a fit of tears.  My heart couldn't take it.

I listened to Podcasts.  Spoken word seemed to be a safe place and specifically I delved into factual based and true crime podcasts.

I forced myself to leave the house, spent hours at my friend's house working out, talking, and cooking meals (well, she cooked and I watched). One Saturday, my parents were out of the house and I decided with no choices left to me, I really needed to look to the future. So what's a girl with a brand new apartment left to do? Go to Home Goods of course.  On the way there, I shuffled some of my favorite songs and slowly...I came back to music.

The following are the songs I immediately latched onto and listened to repeatedly, sometimes for hours at a time. (All song titles are linked to their corresponding YouTube videos).

Vivir Mi Vida - Marc Anthony
This was the song that brought me back. My ex is Puerto Rican and after three and a half years, I incorporated so much of his Hispanic culture into my life.  It's still taking me time, but just because he's left my life doesn't mean I have to let go of my love for this culture.  This song is so uplifting.  I really suggest listening and if you don't know Spanish, look up the translation!

Addicted - Simple Plan
Funny how 2003 Jen would get a kick of how aptly this applies to 2019 Jen's life.

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - Taylor Swift
Taylor just gets it.

The Suffering - Coheed and Cambria
Every day of the breakup has felt like a seesaw.  Some days, I'm convinced there is hope and that we will find our ways back to each other.  Other days, I know that no matter what I did nothing could have changed the ending.

Go to Hell - Go Radio
This is a great sing-along at the top of your lungs in the car song.

Somebody Else Will - Mickey Guyton
Ultimately, the truth.  Currently struggling to believe it, but my therapist says repetition helps change your thoughts.

  1. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
