The Heartbreak Playlist

This is a post I've been thinking about doing for a while but wasn't sure if I was ready to. It's been over 5 months since I broke up with my ex, and I'm doing ok, most of the time. It's been a hard few months but things are starting to look up. 

Music has always been something I turn to when I'm feeling strong emotions, whether it's happiness, anger, sadness or heartbreak. I find it really therapeutic when people can put my feelings into words within a song. I decided to put together a list of my Top 10 Heartbreak Songs in the hope that someone else might find a song that helps them through a tough time. 

These songs won't be what everyone is looking for in a breakup song, and a lot are very personal to me. I've got a mix of sadder songs, and more 'I'm a bad ass bitch' songs, and I've only picked 10 of my favourites. 
The Hardest Part - Nina Nesbitt
"I'd give anything just to be with you again, but it's not the right time. And I'd give anything just to feel you on my skin, but it's not the right time, it'll never be the right time, will it? It might never be the right time and that's the hardest part of it."

Fix a Heart - Demi Lovato 
"It's probably what's best for you, I only want the best for you, and if I'm not the best then you're stuck."

In Case - Demi Lovato 
"In case you don't find what you're looking for. In case you're missing what you had before. In case you change your mind, I'll be waiting here."

Survivor - Destiny's Child
"I'm a survivor, I'm not gon' give up. I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder. I'm a survivor, I'm gonna make it, I will survive, keep on surviving."

No Scrubs - TLC
"I don't want no scrub, a scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me."

Amnesia - 5 Seconds of Summer
"Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie? If what we had was real, how could you be fine? 'Cause I'm not fine at all."

You Could Be Happy - Snow Patrol
"You could be happy, I hope you are. You made me happier than I'd been by far."

Slow Dancing in a Burning Room - John Mayer
"We're going down, and you can see it too. We're going down, and you know that we're doomed. My dear, we're slow dancing in a burning room."

Don't You Remember - Adele
"When was the last time you thought of me? Or have you completely erased me from your memory? I often think about where I went wrong, the more I do, the less I know."

Honey Drop - Jarell
"Hard to let you go, when you're all I know... Sad to say goodbye, as we go on with our lives."

I'd love to hear your favourite break up songs, whether it's a more 'screw you, I can do better' style, or the more sad 'I miss you' types.
