    Definatley!!!!!!!!!!

    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.

    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.

    It Works Well

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

    Music Works When All Else Fails

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

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
