As we all know, Ariana Grande is taking the world by force lately with her new single “thank u, next.” The song encourages young women to find the positivity in past relationships by seeing our exes as lessons learned. In an age where feminism is encouraged, Ariana shows us through her powerhouse vocals and motivational lyrics that every hardship in life is something we can build on and get strength from. In my personal favorite part of the hit, Ariana shares how she’s moved on and is in a new relationship—with herself. She sings, “I met someone else/ We havin’ better discussions/ I know they say I move on too fast/ But this one gon’ last/ ’Cause her name is Ari/ And I’m so good with that.” Ariana gives young women hope when it comes to getting over a broken heart and empowering themselves in the end. Check out this list of great reads featuring heroines who similarly are of the “thank u, next” mind-set.
