Step 1: Self Pity/Wallow
Get a box of Franzia and draw yourself a bath (or slowly slide down your shower wall into a fit of tears). This is all about the wallow. Give in to your "woe is me" mentality.
The National- Sorrow
Adele- Don't You Remember
Bonnie Raitt- I Can't Make You Love Me
Step 2- YOU'RE THE WORST I DON'T EVEN CARE WHATEVER I'M OVER IT
Trade in your (cheap) wine for some (cheap) whiskey. It's about to get real.
Alanis Morissette- You Oughta Know
Justin Timberlake- Cry Me A River
Step 3- I'm gonna do me.
Congratulations! You've passed the sad-sack stage AND the angry bitter stage. You're almost a functional human again! Just listen to these uplifting jams and remember YOU GOT THIS. Throw the box of wine/funnel and the bottle of 711 whiskey aside. It's time for a lighthearted cocktail.
