Do you have a bad habit of listening to sad songs when you already are in a dull mood, which only makes you feel even worse? Cut the sadness out, and veer away from these hugot songs when you're trying to move on from a heartbreak. You'll be surprised by how much happier you can get by simply avoiding these sad tunes.

  1. "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" by The Script

    The line that breaks your heart: "'Cause if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me, and your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be, thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we meet, you'll see me waiting for you at the corner of the street."

    Waiting for someone that may never come back does not only hurt, but is also a waste of time. Think of the progress you could have made moving on in the days, weeks, months or even years you've been waiting. Leave "the corner of the street," and tell yourself that moving on starts today. No more delaying tactics!
  1. "Not in That Way" by Sam Smith

    The line that breaks your heart: "I'd never ask you 'cause deep down I'm certain I know what you'd say. You'd say, I'm sorry, believe me, I love you, but not in that way."

    How do you let go of something that will always mean so much to you? There's no formula to solve this but if you've been stuck in the friendzone for way too long, how about trying to re-evaluate your feelings? Maybe you've confused love with genuine care for a friend.
  1. "Breakeven" by The Script

    The line that breaks your heart: "What am I supposed to when the best part of me was always you? What am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're okay?"

    No one but yourself can ever be the best part of you, remember that. You're a strong independent woman!
  1. "Art of Letting You Go " by Tori Kelly

    The line that breaks your heart: "Your love stayed at the back of my head. A house full of memories is where I lived."

    No, stop living in the past. Stop reliving memories. This is not your reality anymore, and you just need to accept that.
  1. "Sad" by Maroon 5

    The line that breaks your heart: "But I'm scared to death, that there may not be another one like this, and I confess that I'm only holding on by a thin thin thread."

    There's lots of fish in the sea, so of course there will be another one. Let go of the past, and make room for a bright future ahead of you. Every time you tug on feelings that belong to the past, you are also closing the door on a chance for a new person to come into your life.
  1. "Oo" Up Dharma Down

    The line that breaks your heart: "Ako'y iyong nasaktan, baka sakali lang maisip mo naman. Hindi mo lang alam, kay tagal na panahon, ako'y nandirito pa rin hanggang ngayon para sa'yo."

    If this person is really worth your time, it won't take so much of him to realize when he's hurting you. Get rid of toxic people in your life, even if it hurts to do so. It will cause you less pain in the end.
  1. "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt

    The line that breaks your heart: "Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't. And you can't make your heart feel, something that it won't."

    The lyrics say it all. You can't force feelings.
  1. "Tayo Nalang Dalawa" by Mayonnaise

    The line that breaks your heart: "Hindi ko maintindihan, tila tayo'y naglolokohan lang. Ayoko na ng ganito."

    Relationships that keep going around are relationships that are going nowhere. If you're a labels-are-not-important kind of person, at least make sure you know where his loyalty lies.
  1. "All I Ask" by Adele

    The line that breaks your heart:  "If this is my last night with you, hold me like I'm more than just a friend, 'cause what if I never love again?"

    Oh, Adele. Of course you will love again. Don't ever beg for love, because real love will come at the right time.
  1. "Migraine" by Moonstar 88

    The line that breaks your heart:  "Oo nga pala, hindi nga pala tayo. Hanggang dito lang ako, nangangarap na mapasayo."

    One of the hardest things to do is to figure out where to draw the lines. In those too close for comfort moments, these lines might blur and you forget what you are and what you are not. If you know that nothing more can ever be, let go and move on to greater and better things ahead of you. 

You go, Candy Girl! Cheers to happier days ahead.
