The songs that resonate with you can help pinpoint where you are in the healing journey. Written from the heterosexual female viewpoint, ‘cause that is the path I know. Try using music to chart your past and where you want to get to!

11. So Over It, That Now You Can Parody Him
Okay, so now you totally don’t want to ever see him again, because what is the point? You know by now that talking to him about any feelings or ethics is like trying to get across a calculus equation to someone who can’t do simple addition. His brain just cannot compute what you would say, no matter how simply you try to put it! And in his mind, he always comes out with a grade A on the calculus test!
So no point in ever talking to him again. But part of you can delight in singing this female path song to him in your head, as it’s what you wished you had sang to him after that first romantic, love bombing encounter, when he swore he was already in love with you and he gazed into your eyes for that answering reflection. This is not a revenge song, this is a PARODY of a psychopath’s moves, delivered with a HA!
Oops I…I Did It Again By Britney Spears
12. Freedom! Life is Fun Again
The fakers and haters can just be. You’ve got a life to live! And you can…gasp…laugh at yourself!
