10 Questions To Make You Think – February

A bit late but here it goes, 10 brand new questions to make you think this month.

This post is part of a sequence, you can read the other three posts here, here and here. Go to the last link if you want to understand more about this project.

  1. On a scale of one to ten, how sad are you? Why?
    One of the questions in December was the opposite of this one, it was how happy instead of how sad. This question is important because one is not exactly the opposite of the other. There’s something in the middle between being happy and sad. So even if you gave 5 for happy, it doesn’t mean you’ll give 5 for sad.

  2. What is your resolution for tomorrow?
    You can think of tomorrow as an abstract concept. What is your resolution for the future? What steps do you need to take to complete it?
  3. Are you seeking contentment or excitement?
    Again, this is one of those questions that might help you make decisions in the future. It can make you think long-term wishes rather than immediate gains.
  4. Are you in love?
    This question is important in both situations: if you’re single or  in a relationship. That’s because if you’re single and your answer is ‘yes’, you have to think about what it means to you and what you should do about it. If you’re in a relationship and your answer is ‘no’ then something is not quite right. If it’s the other way around then everything is how it should be =)
  5. What is your biggest obstacle right now?
    And what can you do to remove it? Or at least go round it.
  6. What are three things you have to buy?
    The key word here is ‘have’, not ‘want’ but ‘have’. If you really have to buy it then go ahead and do it or start saving for it. Otherwise, think twice. Do you really need it? Is it worthy of the price? You might want to write your shopping list here but try to think beyond that. Maybe you don’t really have to buy anything.
  7. Write down the cure for a broken heart.
    It might come in handy in the future. Although let’s hope not lol. This one is more for entertaining purposes.
  8. If you could change something about today, what would it be?
    Reflecting about your day and how you feel helps you reflect about yourself and what you can do to be better.
  9. What’s the most expensive thing you’re wearing now?
    This one follows the same principle of number 6. Why is it expensive? Did you buy it or was it a present? If you bought it, was it necessary to spend that much money? Or maybe you’ll find out that you haven’t spent that much money on anything at all which might make you feel better about your financial decisions.
  10. What’s the last dream you remember?
    Dreams can actually say a lot about you. No, they won’t predict your future but they represent your present. Your dreams reflect your feelings in real life. If you’ve been having nightmares, you’re probably really stressed and anxious in your daily life.

10 Relationship Pieces of Advice Not To Be Ignored

  1. If you’re not happy when you’re not in a relationship, you won’t be happy in one.
  2. It applies the other way around: if you were happy before you met someone, you can be happy after they are gone.
  3. Some people are just bad news, give them time to grow up.
  4. If you consider giving up on someone, you probably already have.
  5. Don’t be in a relationship if you’re going to act as single.
  6. A relationship that doesn’t work out the first time probably won’t work out the second time, or the fifth.
  7. If you’re debating breaking up, face it, you want to break up, rip off the band-aid.
  8. If someone fucks up, let it go. If they keep fucking up, let them go.
  9. Staying with someone because you don’t wanna hurt their feelings will eventually hurt their feelings.
  10. And finally: If you can’t make somebody happy, let them be happy with someone else. And if someone can’t make you happy…

Songs To Listen To After A Break-up

I know some people like to listen to sad songs about love after a break-up but because I’ve always tried to fight this sadness and depression, I found other types of song to listen to after a break-up, more empowering than sad. Let’s be honest, most of these songs are no masterpieces. However, their lyrics can be really empowering. They talk about having confidence instead of feeling sorry for yourself, they talk about being strong instead of getting down.

So here is my list of 12 songs to listen to when someone breaks your heart:

1. Beyonce – Best Thing You Never Had

“You don’t deserve my tears, I guess that’s why they ain’t there.”

“Thank God I found the good in goodbye.”

 

2. Justin Timberlake – What Goes Around…Comes Around

 

3. Aerosmith – Don’t Get Mad, Get Even

4. Timbaland ft. One Republic – Apologize

“Tell me that you’re sorry, didn’t think I’d turn around and say ‘It’s too late to apologize'”

“I loved you with a fire red, now it’s turning blue.”

 

5- Kelly Clarkson – Since U Been Gone

“But since you’ve been gone, I can breathe for the first time.”

“You had your chance, you blew it. Out of sight, out of mind.”

 

6- Richie Kotzen – Let’s Say Goodbye

“Look in my eyes and I’ll know it’s over and I will go on from right here with the rest of my life.”

 

7- Lúcia Moniz ft Nuno Bettencourt – Try Again

“I can’t believe you’d say these things if you’re in love with me. Try again.

I never thought you’d ever say those awful things to me. Try again.”

 

8 – Jennifer Lopez ft LL Cool J – All I Have

“It’s such a shame but I’m leaving, can’t take the way you mistreated me.”

“My pride is all I have. You’ll be needing me but too bad.”

 

9 – Joss Stone – You Had Me

Hey listen, you’ll be missing out on my love and my kissing.”

“You had me, you lost me, you’re wasted, you cost me. I don’t want you here messing with my mind.”

10 – Beyonce – Irreplaceable

“I can have another you by tomorrow. So don’t you ever for a second get to thinking you’re irreplaceable.”

“So since I’m not you’re everything, how about I’ll be nothing?”

 

11- Christina Perri – Jar Of Hearts

“Don’t you know I’m not your ghost anymore? You lost the love I loved the most.”

“I have grown too strong to ever fall back in your arms.”

12- The Corrs – I Never Loved You Anyway

“I can’t believe I endured you for as long as I did.

I’m happy it’s over, I’m only sorry that I didn’t make the move before you.”

 

And two extra ones if you’re really angry:
