Feeling down or defeated due to a recent heartbreak? We feel you. And with the status quo having everyone feeling extra anxious and isolated lately, it can't be easy to add healing from a break to the mix. You may already have different ways to cope, but remember, distracting yourself isn't always the same as moving on.

If you need a good, full-hearted hugot sesh and just allow yourself to ~feel~ things, wallowing in bed to an emo playlist might be able to help you resolve those feelings.

We asked #GenC community over at Instagram for their breakup songs and most *affecting* lines and here's what we got.
