Cry baby!
The heartbreak playlist

Break-ups are a complex beast that make you want to cry your eyes out. The good news is that crying a river helps. When tears flow, you’re in contact with your feelings and that’s a good thing. But sometimes a good cry doesn’t come naturally. To make it easier for you, we’ve made a playlist you can listen to. Feel free to sob and sing along or weep silently into a pillow. Whatever you prefer.
