A mixtape made just for you when you’re feeling blue.

Hey there! How are you holding up? Life dragging you down?

Whenever I find myself feeling sad or depressed, I find the best way to cope is to sit down and let myself work through it. Being sad is a natural part of life, and so having a good method of coping with it is a necessity. My favorite thing to do when I’m sad is to make myself a cup of tea, grab my journal so I can write or doodle, and cue up my sad playlist on Spotify. It sounds cheesy, but powerful music has really kept me going through some of the worst times of my life.

So here are the top 32 songs on that playlist, along with the best, most relatable song lyrics and song quotes — a little mixtape from me to you. 

Turn up the volume, grab some kleenex, and get ready to be all up in your feels.

20 Strength Quotes To Motivate You When It Feels Impossible To Get Through The Day

Keep your chin up.

Have you ever had one of those days where it felt like a struggle just to get out of bed and put real clothes on? And no, I don’t mean because you’re still drunk from the night before.

I mean the kind of day that feels like it’s going to be crappy because you’ve been dealing with some difficult stuff that doesn’t seem like it’s getting better anytime soon.

Yeah, those days can knock the motivation right out of you. I have dealt with those days before and probably not in the healthiest of ways.

But sometimes, it isn’t as easy as just pushing through the emotions you’re feeling and coming out the other end unscathed.

My point is, every day is different. And a lot of the time, you’re not going to have your ideal day.

But how you handle this day can help you deal with more days in the future when you feel broken or depressed. The best way to deal with these days is with strength.


If you can find the strength to remove yourself from situations you know aren’t going to help you, or ask for help even when you know you don’t want to, then you’re already halfway to a having a better day.

It won’t be easy, but that’s what practice is for.

You don’t have to be a pro at something when you first start. If you were, you’d be flawless, and only Beyoncé is flawless… And maybe Rihanna, too.

But if you constantly practice having the strength to get through even the worst days, even if you slip every once in a while, you’ll notice a difference in your mood, yes, but also in your ability to handle the things life throws at …
