Playlist #4: </3

A.k.a. the emotional/heartbroken/tired/needy/moody playlist. Take your pick. Enjoy. Or, ya know, cry.

I really love sad songs. There’s something to be said for the contemplative state you enter into when you listen to them. It forces you to consider your life and the choices you’ve made and the things you regret and wish you could say or do differently. It makes you wonder. It kind of breaks your heart. But by doing that, it brings about catharsis. It purges those negative feelings and makes you feel lighter, or at least like somebody knows what you are feeling, and you are not alone.
