31 Songs To Inspire You During Tough Times


In times of hardship, I rely on music to inspire me to keep pushing forwards, as millions of other people do. Despite our differences and whatever issues we're all facing individually, one common ground we will always share is our love of music. Everyone feels some sort of connection with music and it's something which truly joins us all together as one.
There are certain songs which, whenever I listen to them, I feel as though I can conquer the world - I'm sure you have songs like that too, songs which just ignite a real fire within you which empowers you to keep going, songs which just make you feel like UGH YES I'VE GOT THIS!!! You know? Those songs. I'm sure a few popped into your mind as you read that. They may not necessarily be upbeat, pop songs, they may be ballads with soul shattering lyrics which break every inch of your existence apart when you listen to them but, once the song is over, you feel stronger and as if you can do anything.
I wanted to share a collection of songs with you which I enjoy listening to when I need some encouragement in the hope that they may help you. I think we should never shy away from an opportunity to share our music with others because, like I said, it's what unites us, and you never know how much one of your favourite songs can help someone out. Below are a few songs which I encourage you listen to the next time you're feeling down. Hang in there. You can get through this.
