Adele: Heartbreak as a CatalystAt a recent doctor’s appointment, while the nurse was administering one of those enjoyable blood tests, she broke the silence between us by commenting on the background music.

It was Adele’s “Someone Like You” — the song that can easily induce tears even upon hearing the first verse:

“I heard that you settled down
That you found a girl, and you’re married now
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things, I couldn’t give to you.”

“Adele’s so great, isn’t she?” the nurse said. “That first heartbreak, though, is the worst.”

The nurse inspired me to wonder about Adele.

  1. your article is wonderful, thank you. that’s exactly why i love adele the artist. she’s such a beautiful soul that it disgusts me how a man can write an unauthorized biography cashing in on her fame and throwing dirt at her. we all have faults, it’s how we overcome them that matters most.

    • Thanks so much :)Her lyrics really do resonate with so many people out there, myself included!
