Tik Tok Made Me- Music Edition


I started watching Tik Tok in early 2019 after seeing an ad on Facebook.  It started out that I just needed to laugh and to "meet" people that were like-minded.  I started watching because I was in a bad place.  I needed to believe that there was still good in the world despite the feeling that my life was changing in ways that I wasn't prepared for.  

My husband returned to a career in law enforcement, my son just graduated high school, and my in-laws moved down south.  All my constants were changing and I needed to learn how to just be myself and for 18 years, I didn't know I was anyone other than Mom.  Then 2020 hit and everything changed again.  E left for the military, I was furloughed from my job for 6 months, and depressed like I have never been in my life.  

Music has always been healing for me and I have found some really great songs on Tik Tok.  It amazes me that some are older songs that I have never heard before, but touch me.  So here is my playlist that Tik Tok Made me download.

Rise Up- Andra Day

Lonely- Justin Bieber

You Should be Sad- Halsey

You Broke Me First- Tate McRae

Villain- Lily Rose

Before You Go- Lewis Capaldi

Mr. Red White and Blue- Coffey Anderson

Leaving my depression these songs still bring out memories or feelings in me that help me work past what I struggled with.  Music heals because lyrics are written because of experience.  What song speaks to your experience?
