    Love those picks, but the Kelly Clarkson one is my favorite. Music can definitely work wonders on our souls.

  2. I too love music and the “What hurts the most” song by Rascal Flatts has definitely been played over and over in the past when my ex husband and I split up. It was tough, I was with him for 7 years but just like you I had 4 kids to think about and after everything he put me through I moved on. It took a long time for me but here I am now. Sorry your going through this…

    These are all great songs. After time it will get easier.

  4. I felt the same way after I had been with someone over 5 years. Like you, music helped ease the hurt. One of my favorite cheesy songs that helped get me through was Here I Go Again by Whitesnake.

    There is so easy way for a broken heart but when I listen to 12:51 song.. in YT.. I feel better.

  6. The only song I’ve heard here is Kelly Clarkson’s Because of you. This kind of song will let the broken-heart realize how he love that person who made him stronger or happy everyday!

    Gonna admit, getting over a broken heart is hard. It’s even harder when you have children. It’s ok to cry. I’ve been through it all like most have. Specially when you spent almost a decade with someone. The best advice, pick yourself up sista, those babies need you. Keep active and join groups with moms going through the same. Have some alone time if you can and enjoy life because you can 🙂

    Great piece… I love music flashbacks. I miss a good Kelly Clarkson song. Her pieces were sung great, and had great meanings behind them.

  9. 7 1/2 years and he’s moved on after a week? :/ I understand how you are feeling. Those are all very good go-to songs after a break up.

    1. Yup, pretty much.. we dated a year longer, so really 8 1/2 years..

  10. These are great songs no matter what but medicine for the broken heart. Keep trucking on, you wonderful person!

    Great choices. I listen to Barry Manilow when I am in the melancholy love mood.

  12. Music is great. It’s nice to listen to some music to help you move through your feelings.

  13. These are some real downers! I think I’ll go listen to some rock n’ roll to lift my spirits. I think if anyone is broken hearted they should listen to some up songs not these kind I think it would make you cry all the more, and besides life goes on. Try and think beyond the broken heart.

  14. I’m a guy, but I’m not gonna lie. Every time I watch stay, I cry like a little girl. I got teary eyed just seeing the Youtube link. Oh, Jennifer Nettles, who hurt you?

  15. Sorry about your split up Natalie. It’s really rough when you have kids. I love all the songs you picked to help you get through it. I love all of the them, but the Sugarland song always gets to me. Take care of yourself Natalie.

  16. Whew, STAY gets to me every time, and I’m not even in a heartbreak. That’s a beautiful song!

  17. if you are trying to move on, you shouldn’t be drowning yourself with these sad songs. go listen to something that is pop and alternative so you wouldn’t feel too much pain.

    1. within the first week, it’s allowed.. you’re allowed to be sad, but after that week, you’re also allowed to move on.. not everyone handles things the same way..

  18. It is interesting, these are great songs but I really could never listen to them even if I was upset. I usually listen to upbeat music or no music at all, but it all depends upon my mood.
