The first part of it is about writer Starlee Kine on her breakup. She finds so much comfort in breakup songs that she decides to write one of her own.
These are a few of my favorite things she said...
So much of what she said brought back memories of my own breakups. Thinking...no...knowing, that I would never, ever heal. Left wondering what happened, why it had to happen, wondering how long it would be before I finally felt normal again, and if I would ever love again. Of course, I did move on, and looking back, I'm grateful for those breakups. They taught me so much. With every break up, I learned what I wanted, and most importantly, I learned what I didn't want. I knew I wanted someone spiritual, someone kind and sensitive, someone manly who could fix things and help me build things- a mans man, someone patient and laid back, but not in a pushover way, someone compassionate, sexy, and fun- and you know what? I found him.
I wish I could go back in time and console myself during those hard times. Now I know why people always tell you, "Don't worry, it gets better", because it does get better. It gets better and better until you finally find what your looking for, which makes all those terrible breakups completely worth it in the end.
