What becomes of the broken-hearted Who had love that’s now departed?



What becomes of the broken-hearted

Who had love that’s now departed?

I know I’ve got to find

Some kind of peace of mind

Help me

 I am fairly sure eveyone knows this song and it got me thinking

How many people have had their heartbroken?

This is a serious question, I’m pretty sure that everyone, at some point in their lives have had their hearts broken by someone.

I have.

And I’m still dealing with the pain of this, so here is my question. How do you deal with losing someone you love?

There are many schools of thought on this subject and I would love to hear what everyone thinks, or how you have dealt with personal heart break.

There are different types of heart break, the most common type is the one that comes with anger, and that anger can help you move forward and get over the heart break.

One of the worst types of heart break is when there is no anger, you split with someone amicably. The pain of that is so much worse, for me personally it came about as I stepped aside so that someone else could be happy, I couldn’t live with myself knowing I was the reason they were unhappy, so now I have to live with the pain of the loss and the only thing that eases it is time, and even that isn’t always enough. Sometimes you have to bury yourself in other things. For me I buried myself in my writing, writing my novel helped me get through the worst of my heart break. It’s also why I started this blog in the first place.


There are a couple of songs that have helped me in this time, although I can’t listen to them anymore because it brings back the memory of the loss even though it helped me at the time.

I’ll put the links below.


Snow Patrol -Run



James Bay – Hold Back The River


Snow Patrol –  Crack the shutters


Backstreet Boys – Just Want you to know

  1. It takes a kind heart to part without anger. It takes a brave heart, to let the other leave without being bitter… To heal a great heart like that, it takes forever…

            1. This is true. It’s a shame I have absolutely zero musical talent I could be a famous rock star.
              I could write an epic power balled love song to rock the ages, be world famous.
              For some reason I now have a nickelback song stuck in my head.
              And probably not the one you think 🤔

            2. Thanks ☺️
              I’ve never understood the hatred of them.
              A lot of the songs if you really listen to them they are very meaningful and emotional. Not all of them obviously but a lot of them. I don’t understand why they are so hated

            4. As a surprise I got my cousin to sing the acoustic version of it at my wedding.
              I asked him to do it but I forgot to tell him about the stripped back acoustic version from the this left feels right album until like 3 days before the wedding. Whoopsie.

              Also had Have A Nice Day as our Last dance
