A Spotify Playlist For When You Realize It Was At Least Half Your Fault

No matter how hard we try, sometimes we are the guilty ones. Relationships break and it’s never easy to cope with it. In these moments, most of us turn to romantic comedies or sad music, because we want to feel like we’re not alone. That everybody feels this one sometimes. That everybody makes mistakes. Here are some songs that will help you when it was at least half your fault…

1. Great One by Jessie Reyez

Most of the time when you break up with someone, you miss them instantly. When you weren’t completely guilt-free when it comes to the breakup, it can hit you even harder. This song will remind you that it’s OK. Everybody makes mistakes.

“Everything is nothing without you.”

2. Where’s My Love by SYML

Sometimes, we simply need to wallow in our sadness. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t. That’s how we grieve, and when it was your fault, we need the time to be sad.

“Does she know that we bleed the same?”

3. Supercut by Lorde

These days it’s hard not to get so sucked into our own problems that we neglect our relationship. Oftentimes when that happens, we realize it way too late. Then, we’re stuck with our guilt and we replay all the good moments.

“In my head, I do everything right.”

4. changes by XXXTENTACION

When it was at least half your fault, this song should be listened to as if your loved one is speaking these words to you. Listen to them and accept your shortcomings. No one is perfect and that’s how it should be.

“You’re changing, I can’t stand it…”

5. Just A Memory by ODESZA feat. Regina Spektor

When you’re in the denial stage, you cannot accept that it’s over. You argue with yourself, go through everything you’ve done wrong and try to rectify it. However, something things are so broken that it’s not possible.

“I don’t want us just to be a memory.”

6. Happier by Ed Sheeran

There comes a moment when you need to accept that it’s over. You have to let the other person be happy with someone who can give them what they need. And you have to be okay with the fact that it’s not you.

“Ain’t nobody hurt you like I hurt you.”

7. The One That Got Away by Katy Perry

The one who got away from you simply wasn’t the one for you. Even if you made a mess of the relationship, it’s perfectly normal to do so. We’re all just learning as we go.

“Talk about our future, like we had a clue.”

8. Say Something by A Great Big World feat. Christina Aguilera

This last conversation between two lovers is one of the most beautiful love songs. Even though your partner gave up on you because of what you did, you’re going to be okay.

“I’m still learning to love, just starting to crawl.”

9. My Fault by Hugo Helmig

This song will help you understand that we all are guilty from time to time. We all make mistakes, and we all don’t keep promises. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t do better next time.

“Promises I never keep, and the lack of attention.”

10. If You Want Love by NF

You have to learn from your mistakes and improve. It’s only a flaw if you don’t work on it.

“If you want love, you gon’ have to learn how to change.”

11. Be Together by Major Lazor feat. Wild Belle

Thanks to this song, you can fantasize that in a different world, you’d be together. If the circumstances were different, you’d end up together. And it’s always okay to dream about it while you grieve.

“Maybe on the dark side we can be together.”

12. The Last Time by Oliver Tank

At some point after a breakup, you have to cut off all communication between each other. Especially if it was your fault. It might be tempting to call your ex but don’t. They need to move on as well.

“It’s the last time you’ll ever hear from me.

13. What If This Is All The Love You’ll Ever Get? by Snow Patrol

When a relationship ends, every party hurts. Simply because it was your fault doesn’t mean that you are not in pain. Remember that you are a human being with feelings and let yourself cry.

“I’m in the ruins too, I know the wreckage so well.”

14. Loner by Mikky Ekko

After a breakup, you become a loner. The best way to deal with that is to focus on bettering yourself. Let yourself grieve and spend time by yourself. Jumping into a new relationship too soon is a bad idea since you have to work on yourself for your next partner.

“I’ll be in pain till the suffering is over.”

15. Don’t Let It Break Your Heart by Coldplay

Finally, remember that we all mess up sometimes. You might think it’s the end of the world and that you don’t deserve love anymore, but it’s not true. Don’t let it break your heart. You have to move on and give yourself some time. You are worthy of love.

“Though heavily we bled, still on we crawl.”
