Playlist for the breaking hearts

Hearts are breaking all around me...marriages falling apart, fighting, cheating...not just acquaintances, but friends - some of my BEST friends - are losing all they know and their dreams are breaking into pieces. Not long ago, it was me. Almost one year after my divorce was final, the pieces of me that were broken on the ground are being put back together into someone beautiful and I see the masterpiece that is being re-created. I want to share some (okay almost ALL) of my favorite break-up/empowerment/strength-gaining songs.

  1. Love this post! I'm such a sucker for "emotional" music that fits certain situations. Most of these are on my list too. I don't know if I'd have any to add!

  2. Jason Aldean - Grown Woman (but change woman to man!)
