6 Playlists For Every Relationship Stage
Stage #6: Time To Move On, Sister!
Enough is enough. This pity party is over and it’s time to face your life. And take a shower. You pick up the crumpled tissues covering your floor and change out of your ratty sweats. Turning on the lights and throwing open the windows, you’re finally ready to move on. The despair has loosened its grip and you’re strengthened by a new resolve to piece your shattered self-esteem back together. As you pour yourself a strong cup of coffee to get the energy required for this next phase (and basic tasks like bathing), you even feel a tiny glimmer of hope flickering in your heart. After wallowing in bottomless depression for so long, this little burst of happiness makes you want to jump up and down and dance. Thank you, God! you think, cranking up the music. Dancing around the room you’re grateful for finally feeling upbeat and knowing you will be OK—hang on tight to this feeling, you’ll need it for all those bad first dates in your future!
