Thanks Emilie2.  I'm doing well tonight--although this has been a wild roller coaster ride--I am not typically a super emotional person, but I sure can't recall feeling ups and downs like this before.  Part of the journey I'm sure... :)  Glad to be here (among supportive MDC moms...not necessarily thrilled about being in the separation boat. ;)

When my divorce was final, my mom affectionately gave me a CD mix she affectionately titled "allchicknodick" lol...anyway, I only remember 2 songs right now, Landslide and I will survive.  If I can come up with the others I will post.

Thank you so much for this thread ... its exactly what I need.

 

I'm only 4 days into my break up with my cheating ex (still feels weird to call him my ex after 10 years!) But i've got my self a really empowering (sometimes angry) playlist based on this thread. Makes me feel actually happiness in all this mess :)

 

Mught I suggest Happy Now by No Doubt http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwnlcKZhRlQ

 

I've been stay away from sad songs, I'm far too raw and fragile for that but Broken strings by James Morrison and Nelly Furtardo say exactly how I'm feeling right now http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id-3FKPpTKw

i discovered a good one recently

 

Some Day You Will Be Loved

 

sometimes getting out of a bad relationship is the best thing that can happen.  if I had gotten stuck with my ex i would have never been loved.


The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

This one is upthread already but it's suuuch a good one that it deserves to be posted twice!

Just a series of blurs, like I never occurred. How long does that take to kick in? I can't wait.

Happiness Runs by Donovan

 

This song has been making me bawl my eyes out, but in a good cathartic way...

"I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself" by Elvis Costello

 

And like, a ton of Smoking popes songs, but especially "No More Smiles" and ::story of my breakup practically:: "Pretty Pathetic"... yeah I'm just going to post the lyrics like a 16yr old girl would on her school folder because they were so spot on.  Even thinking about it makes me feel like I got nailed in the chest with a wrecking ball:

 

You should have heard me sobbing
As I drove home that night
Got into bed and stayed there
For days I just laid there
Having been permanently changed
But we won't get into that now
Let's take it from the start

You should have seen me smiling
Like the world was mine
She used to call me baby
Softly, sometimes
But if I dwell on those days too long
I feel like my life is over

And that's no good
So let's move on

To the part where I begin to sense
Her distance
I panic and hold on tighter
But that makes it worse
How am I supposed to take it
When she said:

"This is something I'm going through,
It's got nothing to do with you"

I had a special evening all planned out
Desperately determined to reignite
Some spark between us
She had to feel something for me
A love as strong as ours
Doesn't just go away
You can't just turn it off
Unless she was lying all those times
But I don't think so
I really don't think so
The way she used to look at me
Made me a thousand feet high
The meaning of the word cool
Not the same geek
Who fumbled through his words that night
The ugliest night

I said some pretty awkward things
I got the feeling that she felt sorry for me
I should have seen it was hopeless and left it alone
But I had to go on embarrassing myself

"I miss what we had I need you so badly,
I miss what we had I need you so badly"


I must have sounded pretty pathetic, I know
That's why I don't blame her for what she said
But listen to me rambling
We don't know each other that well
But you're so easy to talk to
I feel like I can tell you almost anything
I hope I haven't put you off
I have a tendency to do that
Why don't I just be quiet?

This song by Cake could have been the anthem for the relationship that inspired me to start this thread. (And yes, almost a year and a half later and I'm still thinking about it...)


You tell me that you love me so,
You tell me that you care,
But when I need you,
Baby, you're never there.

I found that singing along OUT LOUD to the song 'Someone like you' by Adele was VERY therapeutic, like a mantra, just repeating "nevermind, I'll find someone like you", playing it loud and singing out loud whenever I was alone in the car. It was good to say those words over and over again.
