It was a peaceful Monday afternoon on June 29, 2015, when my heart was broken.
I thought my boyfriend was cheating on me, but I ignored it. I don’t know how it happened, but I realized all my suspicions about him were right. My world stopped. A strange pain in my heart cannot be put into words. Whether I’m stunned or moving, my tears fall spontaneously. I felt the depression. I cannot work properly with all the pain that I am feeling, and my head is trembling. My heart is breaking, and it is crushing my whole being.
One night, while I was alone, thinking about how to deal with my boyfriend, a song caught my attention. Its title is “In the Arms of an Angel” by Sarah McLachlan. It’s a beautiful song. Felt being caressed and comforted by someone who is from above. Hearing this made me feel at peace for a while. It reminded me not to worry much because everything will get better, and the pain will go away in time.
Listening to this song during one of my most painful moments made me feel that music got my back. <3
Music has helped me a lot when things have been rough for my family and me these past few years.
Among the numerous songs I have listened to, these are the three songs that made a very significant impact on my life over the past years: “Don’t you worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia, “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus, and ” Fix You” by Coldplay.
Being a first-time mom and then my husband was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that affected his spine and reduced his mobility just three months after I gave birth has brought so many emotions in me. It felt like our lives were slowly falling apart.
Back then, music has been a genuinely great help, more like therapy for me. I listen to songs when I am down, and my mood changes. And when you don’t know how to express your feelings, music serves as a language that everybody understands.
Music was always there for me! From the most fun and happy moments to the darkest, saddest ones. I always had weird taste in music. I could listen to almost everything, always depending on my mood. My father has a very favorite song that he listens to all the time. We tease him a lot about that. Every time we were traveling, he played his songs. I wouldn’t listen to this artist if it weren’t for my dad. But now I feel a unique feeling every time I do. It’s like something that connects us all. It reminds me of all the road trips, parties, and celebrations we had. His songs were always there. It makes me so happy when I am alone in the car or on a trip with friends, and he pops up on the radio. And at the same time, it makes me so sad that one day I may be able to listen to him with them. But his music will still be there to remind me of everything. Like it always did!
I can still remember that on April 21, 2022, I went to church to save myself from a toxic relationship.
I thought I was getting married soon since my ex-boyfriend’s friends were all getting married. However, since last year everything went shakey. I have even got worst since January 2022. My feelings were already fading since he became more irresponsible. Last February 18, 2022, I attended a wedding with my ex-boyfriend. It was his best friend’s wedding. During the wedding reception, we were in the middle with his friends who were not yet married. The emcee then suddenly asked my ex-boyfriend,” sir, how long are you together in a relationship? ” my ex-boyfriend replied, ” I don’t know,” in a loud voice with a mic. I felt stunned and speechless, but I kept my cool. On February 21, 2022, my ex-boyfriend suddenly ghosted me. We broke up without any closure.
I felt shattered being left alone. There were nights when I just suddenly cried without knowing the reason why. Almost every day, I went to church praying to be successful someday and will have a better partner someday.
I was listening to music while working out at the gym and listening to Roar by Katy Perry. This song is about overcoming challenges and getting back on your feet when someone or something comes along and knocks you down. It’s a lovely song. I got my power after being broken. Hearing this song makes me strong, reminding me that no matter how many times someone tries to knock me down. I can get back up. I decided to make better plans for myself and focus on myself.
Listening to this song reminds me to be strong when someone tries to bring us down, making me feel that music got my back.
