Sometimes it feels like the whole world is in love except you. Everyone in the park is holding hands, all the people in restaurants are on dates, and you are the only one left on the planet without some one’s hand to hold. During these times, it’s simple to fall into a world of despair, deciding to just stay home and wallow in your tears, not daring to leave the comfort of your home for fear of the sadness you may encounter outside.
It’s at the height of this heartbreak that it seems even every radio station and song is boasting about lovers and the romance of life. Seeing the truth of true love feels impossible and unrelatable after a breakup. This is the perfect moment to actually let music raise your spirits. Turn off the radio and find something new and inspiring to get you through the pain of lost love.
When your emotions are overcome with heartache, finding the perfect musical outlet can be a challenging feat. Here’s a mix of songs that’ll uplift your spirits and have you dancing in your underwear singing at the top of your lungs, heartbreak and all.
