      Marilyn Manson’s cover of Personal Jesus. Stomping down the streets with this blasting in some killer heels makes me feel invinsible. Impossible to not feel like Wonder Woman.

      You all frequently post articles concerning how to get over a boyfriend, survive a break up, ect. However, it would be nice to see an article about how to end a relationship, especially with someone who is very much in love with you. Breaking up with someone can be very difficult, and women have to deal with this issue aswell. We’re not all being dumped and cheated on continuously.

      I got through my divorce in the late 90′s with a Alanis Morrisette’s Jagged Little Pill and Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie albums.
