The first playlist, titled 'I love You, It’s Ruining My Life Songs,' embodies the stage of denial.

Swift explains, "This is a list of songs about getting so caught up in the idea of something that you have a hard time seeing the red flags, possibly resulting in moments of denial and maybe a little bit of delusion." Included in the playlist are 19 tracks such as 'Bejeweled,' 'Cruel Summer,' 'Lover,' and 'Lavender Haze.'

Swift elaborated, "Over the years I’ve learned that anger can manifest itself in a lot of different ways, but the healthiest way that it manifests itself in my life is when I can write a song about it and then oftentimes that helps me get past it."

Featuring hits like 'Exile,' 'Bad Blood,' 'I Knew You Were Trouble,' 'Dear John,' and 'Mr. Perfectly Fine,' the playlist kicks off with 'Vigilante Shit' and comprises a total of 22 songs.

The playlists 'Am I Allowed To Cry?' (Bargaining) and 'Old Habits Die Screaming' (Depression) delve into sorrow and the desperate attempts to cling to what remains.

Finally, 'I Can Do It With A Broken Heart' (Acceptance) emerges as a celebration of resilience. With tracks like 'You're On Your Own, Kid,' 'August,' and 'Daylight,' Swift invites her listeners to embrace the bittersweet reality of moving forward, acknowledging the growth that can arise from heartbreak.
