Music And Breakups

The Nightcap

“Originality is the fine art of remembering what you hear but forgetting where you heard it.” – Laurence J. Peter



Moved By Music

Enjoying a certain type of music or song is not only incredibly common – it might be the only thing that unites us as humans. Well, that and coffee and Matthew McConaughey’s abs.

Music can put us in a good mood instantly. It can mend broken hearts or nostalgically remind of us of another time in our lives. It can motivate us through a workout or bring us to dance in the rain.

Music is such a powerful tool that it is said that up to 50% of the population actually gets goosebumps when they hear a certain song. But it doesn’t stop there.

What one particular study out of Harvard discovered is that only certain people draw a direct correlation between their emotional and physical state and music and those people have different brain structures than the rest of the population.

Giving Back

“Breakups can be rough” is one of the most “no shit, Sherlock” things to announce, but sometimes I like to reiterate the obvious. You know, like reminding people that “one plus one equals two” and “redheads have no soul.”

With breakups comes a lot of emotional baggage and irrational thoughts and/or actions. Heavy drinking or sleeping around is often a coping mechanism that seems to work temporarily.

What DOESN’T generally work (short or long term) is asking for something back. Not only do you look super petty; you are then stuck with this thing that’s a constant reminder of the other person.
