Okay, this may sound a bit cliché, but hear me out. Part of what makes breakups so difficult is that we tend to go through them alone. Sure, others may be there to offer their support, but they’re not experiencing the full emotional weight of the breakup like you are. When you find a breakup song where you know the artist “gets it” because he or she is expressing exactly what you’re feeling, you’re reminded that you’re not alone—and that can feel damn good! A personal favorite of mine: “Girl From The North Country” by Bob Dylan.
