I Couldn't

song about a broken heart

Did you ever feel paralyzed after a break-up? Trouble letting go? Couldn't think clearly? Can't stop thinking about that feeling? If this sounds too familiar this song is for you.

It's really hard to let go of that feeling. Really hard to accept circumstances beyond your control. Hard to forget. It's like that famous song says.... "breaking up is hard to do..." By Neil Sedaka.

I think during breakups, it's really important to allow yourself to process and to accept that we cannot change the past, control others and to practice gratitude. Some people never experience love in their lifetime. If your grieving lost love, if you've been lucky enough to have experienced love, be grateful. Once in a lifetime is better than none at all.

This is one of my favorite songs. When love is absent, we often find ways to fill our hearts. At the end of the song I say

"I can follow my dreams."

Words of affirmation?

"maybe you can be there, loving me."

or maybe following a dream is just a filling a void. Nothing really matters in life without love.

Take from this song what helps you get through your breakup.
