‘A Little Bit Stronger’
Many fans credit this song with helping them move on from heartbreak.
“This song literally saved my life,” one fan wrote. “My husband of 16 years left me, he wouldn’t admit it but I know it was for another woman who he’s still with now, 8 years later. This song reminded me that I mattered, I was important and that nobody else could value my worth more than I could. I moved on, I did it. I established my own life on my own, and now at the mention of his name I cringe. I can’t believe I gave my life to somebody that so easily tossed me aside after building our life together. To any woman who is watching this, you’ve got this girl! It hurts, it’s hard but trust me, you will find a person inside of you that you didn’t even know existed.. You will be okay, you will be stronger and you will thrive!!”
“My husband left me a week ago and I’ve been playing this song on repeat,” another fan confessed. “I’m getting a little bit stronger every day.”
