    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
