Pretty sure this is rock-bottom (god I hope so)

This mixtape comes in parts. You can use the sections individually or listen to it as a whole to help you out of whatever hole you’re in. The first half (tracks 1-10) are sad songs so you can think about where you’re at and your life so far. Tracks 11 and 12 are “transitional” tracks to help you start to move forward. Track 13 is bittersweet in case you are feeling nostalgic. Tracks 14 through 17 are motivational tracks to help remind you of everything you need, want, and deserve, and why it’s worth it to keep going. Tracks 18-20 are cheery songs that you can sing along to when you’re feeling discouraged. I hope it helps. Keep your chin up, you can do this.
