10 Girl Power Anthems You Need To Replace Your Heartbreak Songs With ASAP

Is it just me, or was 2018 the year of breakups? Couples have been dropping like flies the past few months. Every time I turn around, it seems someone else is heartbroken.

The good news is that this also means 2018 is the year of GIRL POWER! It’s easy to listen to sad songs and wallow in your misery, but once you’re done wallowing (which should happen quickly!) it’s time to transition into picking yourself up and becoming the girl boss you are. Delete that “Broken-Hearted Girl” playlist on Spotify and make a new one with these girl power anthems sung by some of the greatest girl bosses I know, because you too are not a girl that frets over some mediocre boy!

1. Survivor - Destiny’s Child  

You will survive this breakup, and you certainly do not need a man. In fact, you are going to thrive like never before because this heartache will make you stronger - he did you a

favor, girl.

Fave lyrics: “My own direction, born to be the best at what I do. I'ma make it through, stompin' like a soldier in my big black boots” 2.    Miss Movin’ On - Fifth Harmony

Again, you’re moving on and becoming a better you without this person. There will come a   time, if it hasn’t already, that you will never want to go back to the time when you were with him. You are finding yourself and are no longer that girl who let this person hurt you.

Fave lyrics: “Everything is changing and I never wanna go back to the way it was.

I'm finding who I am and who I am from here on out is gonna be enough.”

3.   Love Myself - Hailee Steinfeld

The most important thing to do after a breakup is rediscover yourself and fall in love with yourself again, especially if the relationship you just got out of made you lose that. Self love is all you really need.

Fave lyrics: “I’m gonna put my body first and love me so hard ’til it hurts”

4. Before He Cheats - Carrie Underwood

For all the ladies who got cheated on, this one’s for you. Plus, it’s an absolute banger.

Fave lyrics: “I might’ve saved a little trouble for the next girl because the next time that he cheats, you know it won’t be on me.”

5. So What - P!nk

Yeah, you lost some guy, so what? You are still a ~rockstar~. Go live your best life without him.

Fave lyrics: “Guess what? I’m having more fun now that we’re done.”

6. Irreplaceable - Beyoncé

Say it with me, ladies: ALL. BOYS. ARE. REPLACEABLE. You may have thought he was the

love of your life, but there is someone out there who would give anything to be with you. And your ex knows it.

Fave lyrics: “You must not know ‘bout me. I can have another you in a minute and, in fact, he’ll be here in a minute.”

7. Part of Me - Katy Perry

This is your chance to be you! You may have lost a lot in this relationship, but there is a part of you that no one else will ever be able to tarnish or take away from you.

Fave lyrics: “In fact, you can keep everything...except for me.”

8. Stronger - Kelly Clarkson (the classic “Since U Been Gone” works, too)

Let this experience make you stronger. You may feel broken now, but imagine where you’ll be a few months or even weeks down the road. Be okay with being on your own for a while and dream of that day when you’re over this guy and living your best life.

Fave lyrics: “Thanks to you I'm finally thinking about me. You know, in the end, the day you left was just my beginning.”

7. Sorry - Beyoncé

BOY, BYE. Enough said.

8. Shout Out to my Ex - Little Mix

Soon you’ll be thanking him, sweetie. You dodged a bullet and this will shape a better you.

Fave lyrics: “Hope she ain't fakin’ it like I did...forget that boy, I’m over it.”

9. Really Don’t Care - Demi Lovato

I know you definitely do care right now, but do whatever you can to get your mind off of him. There will come a day where you don’t care about him at all, and it will be the best feeling.

Fave lyrics: “Now if we meet out on the street I won’t be running scared. I'll walk right up to you and put one finger in the air.”

10. Single Ladies - Beyoncé (Are you even surprised most of these are Beyoncé songs?)

Look on the bright side: you’re a free woman now! You don’t have to answer to anyone. Believe me, he will be wishing he held you down once you put yourself out there again.

Fave lyrics: “Cause you had your turn, but now you gon' learn what it really feels like to miss me.”

Are we missing any? What are your go-to songs to pick yourself up after a break-up?

Fake it ‘til you make it, ladies!
