I’ve touched on the subject of breaking up often because it does have such a big impact on us; not just when we’re going through the break up but even for a long time afterwards. When you’ve gotten used to having someone in your life, whether things were good or bad, its hell facing your life without them. Even when you know deep down that you’re better off without him, you still crave contact with him and miss him in a way that can only be compared to an addiction—deep down you know it’s wrong, but you can’t seem to help yourself.

I’ve got a few lists on the go of songs that really resonate with people when they’re going through a break up and the one that stands out in my mind the most is ‘Rehab’ by Rihanna. The words can pierce into the heart of anyone whose ever been in love and had to deal with letting go of their ‘habit’. It’s not really your typical ballad or sad song, but the words can definitely bring on the tears.

There is no video to the song, but I found one on YouTube that a fan created that includes the lyrics. Watch at and see what it does for you. It’s a great song.

Let me know your take on it and how it made you feel. Did it resonate with something you’ve been through? Did it make you cry? I’d love to hear from all you Divas!
