    I Just Listen To It

    I just listen to songs I love in a moment when I was upset, in love, excited and so forth. When I was heartbroken, I listen to the songs with lyrics I can relate to.

    It Works Well

    Music has a way of making things better. I have always thought that, I just never always believed it fully.

    Sometimes Yes Sometimes No

    It can help but its not always what helps. I listen to music all the time, though my ipod has pretty much died on me, and normally blaring it as loud as it can go makes me calm down. At least for the most part it does.

    When I Get Angry Or Depressed....

    when i get angry or depressed i listen to metal. but not just any metal, christian metal. it really helps calm me down for some reason, especially three bands : demon hunter, disciple, and chevelle. both sound so different, but they give me the same result.

    Listening to music, I find, is the simplist way to deal with my emotions. I connect to it, I relate to it, and it comforts me.

    Music Works When All Else Fails

    Even if it just makes me cry myself to sleep. It serves a purpose.

    Listening to music really helps.

    The lyrics help me relate to the song I am listening to. Even if I cry, it helps. Also writing my feelings out helps too.

    How Im Feeling

    As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I wear my crown of thorns and pull the knife out my chest. I keep searching for something that I never seem to find. But maybe I won’t, because I left it all behind. Now I’m stuck with this, and that’ll never change...

    I don't know if there are words to describe the huge role that music has played in my life, but I'll try. Music is the one constant in my life that has always been here. No matter how old a song is, I can always listen to a song I like and have a special connection to it. I tend...

    I Am So Emotional

    I love listening to new age music, soft instrumentals that will help relax my mind. I am so emotional and it helps when I listen to this kind of music, it's very comforting.
