If you’ve ever been in a serious romantic relationship that didn’t work out, you can probably relate to this next song. I wrote “Drained” nearly 10 years ago after leaving my ex-fiancé and moving out of our home. While the breakup was certainly an enormous loss for me, the full extent of the loss began months earlier after I nearly died in a really bad car accident.
After the car accident, the relationship between my ex-fiancé and me changed dramatically. Before, I was a wild, free, and fun early-20s young lady. After, I was either in constant pain or doped-up on painkillers and muscle relaxers. Looking back, I imagine experiencing me change like that was a pretty big loss for him!
Near the end of our relationship, he no longer seemed willing or able to cope with my recovery process. In all fairness, I could barely cope with my recovery process! I felt him pull away and begin focusing on what he wanted as opposed to what we wanted, and in return, I worked harder to keep us afloat. Ultimately, he stopped contributing all together, and that is when I chose to leave.
Unresolved grief can destroy relationships. Trying to love with a broken, bleeding heart is almost always a recipe for more breaks and bleeding! I hope you enjoy how I reflected on the grief of my past relationship below in my song “Drained”. Please share with others if you like the way my heart speaks!
