The Break-up Aftermath Playlist

The Break-up Aftermath Playlist

So your partner read my advice and left you. You are here to know exactly what I said and perhaps find a way to kill me. But before you do that, please take the time to read what I am about to tell you.

You were stupid. Yes, a crazy stupid person who gave away heart and soul to an asshole/bitch.

Yes. If your ex were a good person or if he or she were really destined for you, or if he or she were true to you, you wouldn’t be here like a wrecking ball of nerves and distraught emotions smashing through this virtual wall of my blog.

But that’s beside the point.

I want you to understand that it gets better, that love would eventually lead you back to the path of happiness, and this time, with the true one. These words probably don’t mean anything to your right now because your  puffy-teary eyes find it difficult to read and their meaning may not reach you because you’re probably dead inside.

And it’s fine. It’s ok to cry a river, and pour your heart out. It’s ok to be a drama queen and show that you’re hurt.

Cry. It’s ok. It’s not a weakness to be hurt. It’s your right and freedom to do so. You didn’t deserve what he or she did to you.

Others would tell you to stop, get up and move on. Others can do it. You can too, but not right now. And that doesn’t mean you’re weak. You are simply human.

So you’re hurt and suffering. As you wallow in this pool of sadness, don’t let depression creep in and drown you. Reflect also on what happened. Aside from your ex’s devilish cruelty, think about his reasons and the probability that this break-up was partly due to some of your shortcomings. It will help you become a better person and be smarter next time.

Allow yourself to be surrounded by friends and family who sympathize with you, and rekindle relationships with old friends, which you have neglected during your time with your demon ex.

In the meantime, I’m leaving you here a playlist of songs which some of my friends listened to when they were heart-broken.

1.      Torete by Moonstar88- it’s about being honest with your feelings, of being still in love with the beloved but has the courage to let the beloved go, even though it drives you crazy.
2.       Somewhere Down the Road by Barry Manilow- suggested by my bestfriend. He believes that love is sweeter the second-time around. He was left behind by a girl but never really let go. He hoped that they will meet again in the future, but eventually found another, the true one.
3.      Broken Vow by Lara Fabian- my personal suggestion. I think I’d listen to this, and even sing it everyday if I were heartbroken. It’s about genuine love that has the power and courage to let go and accepting that it’s over.
4.      I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor- suggested by a girl who kept a fighting spirit. Though left behind, she sang this song in the shower, while dancing and crying like crazy.
5.      You’re So Vain by Carly Simon- generally suggested by people. The song speaks for itself.
6.      Irreplaceable by Beyoncé- suggested by a big fan of the Queen B. Let the message of the song be impressed on your heart, and shout out “You think you’re irreplaceable? Fuck you!”.

Anyway, that’s all I can gather.

Reminder- get some whiskey and some Pringles. But don’t die. Live. Because you can still love again.

The Break-up Month: Why You Should Do It Now?

November should be the Break-up Month, the ultimate deadline for guys and girls to do what they have been hesitating to do in these past few days, weeks or months- break-up with their partners.


This is for the cases of those who have fallen out of love, or got bored, or found someone else. This is the perfect time to do it. In fact, this is the deadline.

Why is this the ideal month?

  1. It’s convenient- financially and emotionally speaking.
There’s no special holiday in this month that requires you to buy your partner any special gift to which he or she can attach a memory and a sentiment, unlike December. Breaking up this month can save you time, money and energy.

If not, then imagine yourself on the following month, braving the traffic and the crazy queues of the holiday shopping frenzy, the mental effort exerted on what item to buy for your partner and the memory and thrilling thoughts and emotions your unsuspecting partner will attach to that object. And for what? For your partner to realize that the following week your relationship is going to end. And that will be devastating. And in the moment of the havoc you have brought upon your partner, the Christmas gift will stand out as a reminder of the past happiness that you have destroyed.

No, you don’t want that to happen.

You can spare your partner that if you break up with him or her TODAY.

  1. Prevent greater damage-
Don’t be a total jerk or a total bitch by breaking up with your partner on December, worse, during the holidays, because if you do that, in the following weeks after the holidays, your partner will be left alone and that would be devastating and inhuman.

For once don’t be a dickhead. Give your partner the coup de grace and break up this month.

Your partner would surely be broken this month and lose the will to live. By December, friends and family will be available and have time to go to your partner and give him or her comfort and emotional support he or she needs.

It would be therapeutic and will be helpful for your partner to recuperate, to cope up and rise again from the ruin you caused.

  1. Time for reflection-
And finally, breaking up in November will give way for the both of you to have time to reflect during the holidays on your relationship and what happened to the both of you.

And you will both realize that you are not destined for each other, or perhaps the other way around. Or perhaps you might realize that you bother deserve somebody else, not someone better, but somebody you truly deserve.
And for you, to realize that doing this will not take away the fact that you are still a parasitic scourge and a curse that deserve to burn in all seven hells (if we were living in the world of Westeros), and that the least you could do is not only an apology but executing this practical advice.

Fuck you.
