There is no better feeling than being completely empowered. However, we all know that sometimes life can get us down and we feel like this current problem we are facing is the end of the world. When I feel like this, the only thing that can truly lift me out of the mood is writing and music. I love turning the volume up really high and for some reason, I just start to feel better again. In particular, when you feel heartbroken, it can be tempting to just dwell on the good times alone while listening to depressing love songs, but that gets us nowhere apart from forgetting all the reasons things didn't work out to begin with! If you're feeling like this today and are all down in the dumps doing nothing, I have put together some of the songs I blast when I'm upset, angry or confused about a situation.
1. Let It Go by Idina Menzel
If you only listen to the Demi Lovato version you're doing it all wrong... you need to listen to the real Frozen version as loud as you can!
2. Not Me, Not I by Delta Goodrem
A really nice song, but also reminds you that you are worth more than crying your eyes out in bed over him. "Did you think that every time I see you I would cry? No not me, not I."
3. Fight Song by Rachel Platten
This one is great for taking back control of your life and emotions!
4. Ugly Heart by G.R.L
The boy may be a model but lets face it, we all know you can do better...
5. A Little Time by The Beautiful South
This song got me through a break-up because my mum made me listen to it over and over again and it helped, A LOT.
6. Shake It Off by Taylor Swift
Haters gonna hate, hate, hate...
7. I Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift
Perfect for releasing a build up of anger when you might be getting hurt by someone!
8. Best Thing I Never Had by Beyonce
Because ladies, we are all Beyonce!
9. All About Tonight by Pixie Lott
"I bought a new pair of shoes, I got a new attitude when I walk"
10. Domino by Jessie J
I just love this song and hearing it makes me happy, soz...
11. Turning Tables by Adele
The only Adele song that doesn't move me to tears...
12. Clean by Taylor Swift
My 2015 girl power song because as time moves on, things get better. Taylor spoke about getting over a break-up and said "You replace these old habits with new habits, like texting your friends in a group chat all day and planning fun dinner parties and going out on adventures with your girlfriends, and then all of a sudden one day you're in London and you realize you've been in the same place as your ex for two weeks and you're fine. And you hope he's fine." and she's right, I had one of these moments recently, you realise time has healed you.
No matter how horrible things may seem at first, life goes on! Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together :) Don't dwell on sadness, absorb these lyrics and take back control of your life :) I'm in a great place lately and I think a lot of it is to do with these songs that kept me going, so I hope this helps!
