I have said a number of times that I couldn’t listen to much music for a long time after D-day. There were too many triggers. I still can’t listen to many love songs. For a while I listened to sad stuff like the music from Braveheart. It felt sad and let me be sad in it. If you are sad – that incredible sadness that colors your world gray – then Braveheart can be there with you. It didn’t make me feel better, but it sat with me and allowed me to express my pain. Here is a link to it:
Right now I am angry. This song is perfect for the angry phase. It’s Joan Jett with I Hate Myself for Loving You.
If you need to express your heartbreak, here is a good one. Per the recommendation of fellow blogger Fighter and Survivor, here is Adele with He Won’t Go:
You know, some of these songs are not even songs I would have listened to before D-day. But the intensity of the emotions after discovery of my husband’s betrayal have changed me. These songs, while not necessarily my style, speak to me today.
Say, if you have a song that speaks to you in your journey, send us the link in a comment below. We can share what helps us through.
Sending you all love & prayers,
