Review: "Before I Fall Apart" - Elle Coves

Self-sabotage in relationships can be incredibly challenging because it creates a constant cycle that traps us. The negative thoughts that arise from self-sabotage convince us that we are undeserving of the happiness we find in our relationships. Consequently, we push ourselves away from someone who genuinely wants to be a part of our lives and treats us well. Elle Coves’ single “Before I Fall Apart” reflects this. Engaging in self-sabotaging behaviors is essentially like shooting ourselves in the foot. It leads us to treat ourselves negatively, which in turn keeps us stagnant in life, preventing growth, success, happiness, and other well-deserved experiences. Overcoming self-sabotage requires recognizing our own worth and learning to embrace the positive aspects of our relationships. It involves breaking free from the destructive patterns that slow down our progress and choosing to pursue the healthier and joyful path that we’ve always wanted.

Elle's debut single, "Before I Fall Apart," is a summer hit, the kind you'd joyfully blast in your car with the windows down and the wind blowing through your hair on a sunny day. Elle battles with internal doubts and fears while appreciating the beauty of her relationship. She acknowledges its potential and is enjoying the genuine care she receives, but her self-sabotaging tendencies emerge, threatening her happiness. The lyrics reflect her struggle: "I try to run but oh my God I can't escape this feeling. Try to move on, it's back to you that all my roads keep leading. You're all I want, so give me something that I can believe in, before I fall apart." Elle recognizes that these negative doubts are just illusions fabricated by her own mind. Self-sabotage tricks us into believing that we are unworthy of the blessings in our lives, stopping our personal growth and blocking our happiness. However, Elle realizes, and declares, "I know it's all just in my head." Yet, overcoming these behaviors requires time and effort. It becomes a journey towards practicing consistent positive thoughts and believing that the good things that come our way are meant for us. Towards the end of the song, Elle swings back and forth between battling her thoughts and doubting herself and the relationship before it even has the chance to get anywhere, expressing, "Fall apart, right before it even starts. I don't want to break your heart. I don't wanna fall apart."
