Build you up to break you down

So I thought I would change gears for this week’s blog post and do something a little more personal. If you’ve been keeping up with my blog for the last 2 months, then you have experienced a lot of my interests and things that I find helpful to those looking for comfort.  I’m sure though, you may be thinking, “Who is this person?” “ Why does she write this blog?”

Instead of spilling all of my guts and telling my whole life story at once, I’ll give you (my readers) little bits of me as time goes along.

Below I have listed my top (originally 10, but I added two) songs that comfort me when I get down and have my really black days.  The first five, are songs that will most likely break you down emotionally and the last five, will build you back up.  I won’t even explain them, I just hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Some of these are sad, some are just slower and more solemn but personally when I have bad days I enjoy listening to really intensely sad music while I cry and get all of my emotions out. Here are five of my many emotional escapes. (Some of the videos will not Embed on the blog, no matter how many different videos I post for them, it has something to do with their record label so clicking on the name will take you to them on youtube. :])

7. Avril Lavigne- Slipped Away

6. Idina Menzel and Lea Michele- I Dreamed a Dream (Glee)

5. Coldplay- Fix You

4. Robert Pattinson- Let me Sign

3. My Chemical Romance- Cancer


2. TLC – I Miss You

1. Adele- Chasing Pavements

To break up some of the length, I will post this in two pieces :]

I will post the last part first though so it will appear in order.

Build you up to break you down: Pt. 2

The next five songs are more inspirational and uplifting. Once I have cried my eyes out and allowed my feelings to surface. I try and combat all of my bad thoughts with some happiness. These songs just put a smile on my face on those difficult days when smiling is the last thing on my mind.

[Just like the last post, some of these song UNFORTUNATELY won’t embed so just click the names to list on youtube if you’d like]

5. U2-Original of the Species
4. Kanye West- All of the Lights
3. P!nk- Funhouse

2. Lupe Fiasco- The Show Goes On

1.Noah Gunderson- Moss on a Rolling Stone (LIVE)

The quote I chose this week I stumbled up on in my English class, it was in a handout the teacher passed out. It resonated with me so much that I had to write it down.

“Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights but you can make your whole trip that way.” –E.L. Doctrow

It talks specifically about writing a novel but I really felt like this quote applies to life in general. If things seem dark and hopeless, sometimes we can only take it one day at a time, as far as our headlights, but eventually you will get home. Eventually you will see the end.
