Songs for Sorrow

Sometimes you’re not ready to be happy just yet. You can try listening to a happy song or do something fun, but it just doesn’t work because you haven’t let yourself be sad. If you try to push it away sadness might just catch up to you when you don’t want it to. Sometimes the only way to get through it is to ride it out and sit in it for a while, let it run its course, and then feel better. So for the times where you just need to let it out and cry, here is a list of some of the songs I listen to when I’m working through my sadness.
