Have you ever woken up feeling uneasy and empty? Or maybe you’ve had one of those days where nothing goes your way? Maybe you’ve just gone through a devastating break-up or just flunked that super tough midterm. Maybe you’re feeling homesick. Whatever it is, we all have had our fair share of bad days.

While most of the time watching your favorite rom-com or hanging out with your friends can help turn your day around, sometimes, having a bad day can mean wanting some alone time. For me personally, I find that sometimes having a good cry is very cathartic and can relieve a lot of the pent up stress and emotions I have. So, if you’re having one of those days when you just want to lie in bed in the dark and stare dramatically at your ceiling, here’s the ultimate sad song playlist to help you get those tears going.
