So you’re going through hard times in your relationship. It might be a breakup, fights, cheating, or maybe you’re crushing on someone and don’t even know how to express those feelings in words and you just feel depressed about it.
The bad news; it’s not going to be easy, the good news; you’re not alone in this. As they say, ‘we understand the music better when we’re sad.‘
Most times, when we’re sad, music is all that we have to express our anger, pain and also try to transition ourselves back to happy state of mind. It helps us to find that courage to move on and also to stay strong.
One of the best cures for heartbreak is the balm of music that speaks to our souls — or maybe helps us rationalize away the tears.
