The Year in Heartbreak: 2018


Katerina Torres

When we near a new year, it’s nice to take some time to reflect on the prior one. Time passes us and we don’t often pause to cherish all of the growth and happenings of the year. Reflection plays a huge role in transformation, especially when it comes to heartbreak, so we wanted to take the time to reflect on the role heartbreak played in society this past year.

We decided to round up all things heartbreak from 2018. You might have forgotten about the song that was your breakup anthem earlier this year, or the celeb split that made you feel less alone in your grief, but we’re here to remind you of all the times heartbreak was on our radar. Hopefully this trip down memory lane serves as inspiration, support, and knowledge as you step into the new year.
