This Taylor Swift Song Will Help You Move On
Today is a sad day for fans for romance. According to People, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris have reportedly broken up. Don't turn to an ultra moody breakup anthem to heal your wounded heart, though. Swift's future is as bright as ever right now, and the one song that can get you (and her) through Swift's breakup with Harris is her song "Begin Again." Between the Paris set video to the hopeful lyrics, Swift's song "Begin Again" is the reminder you need today that everything is going to be OK and love is not actually dead.
The adorable couple, who have posted swan pictures on Instagram and name-checked each other in awards speeches for over a year now, may be no more — and just the thought of Swift and Harris' potential split is bumming me out too. If you too are heartbroken over this news, then mark my words: You need to turn to Swift to help you process this breakup. The alleged breakup was amicable, however, according to E! Online. As much as it hurts to see a relationship end, especially one where the couple appeared to be so perfect for each other, the best way to heal a broken heart is to look to the future and listen to your favorite music.
"Begin Again" is all about the first new relationship after a big breakup. It's about finding someone new who appreciates how funny and unique you are. While Swift and Harris were always super adorable together, Harris is not the only person out there for Swift. In fact, she doesn't need a guy to know she is an amazing, inspiring woman with lots of talent and a big heart.
Go ahead and queue up "Begin Again" and remind yourself how hopeful this song is. Rather than dwell on the negatives, it looks forward to a future where the breakup is old news and life has moved on. Breakups happen for a reason, and "Begin Again" gets that. I have always loved this line: "He always said he didn't get this song, but I do, I do." It is so candid, and it speaks volumes about why it is better to not be with someone who doesn't totally love everything that makes you special than to stay in a relationship to avoid heartbreak.
It is hard not to get invested in celebrity relationships, especially since you get to see all the best parts thanks to social media. There is always another side to the story though, and processing the fact that two celebs you thought were going to be together forever have called it quits is never fun. Music can cure almost anything that ails your soul, though.
Swift has gotten you through crushes, romances, and breakups with her beautiful songs, now she can help you deal with her breakup too. Don't dwell on what might have been. Instead, think about all the happiness in Swift's future. She'll take her own advice and start over, and in the meantime, you can listen to her anthem to falling in love after a breakup on repeat until you have processed all of your Swift and Harris breakup feelings.
