    Music is the greatest medicine

    When things go wrong

    and I feel like I have no one, I go to music it helps me feel better and helps me relax. It makes me feel that even for that short amount of time all my problems can just disappear and I can pretend that everything in the world is fine. It helps me escape from reality and eases...

    Nope, I Find It's Too Much

    So, for today's "EP suggested" experience story about listening to music when I'm upset, have to say that I don't actually do this at all.In fact if I'm really upset it's about the last thing I would do.  I find it makes it much worse.Listening to someone sing about a broken...

    Angry Music

    You can telly mood by the music that gets played. Usually I play classics or golden oldies, but if the heavy metal goes on- or even worse, the Wagner - just quietly leave me alone till I get over it.

    Whenever my parents are fighting with me

    or each other or anyone I just simply put my headphones in and ignore them. They adventually go away and stop fighting. Music also helps me stay incontrol when I feel down and out. It helps me realize stuff. I just love music.

    And it helps, because you can find songs

    that relate to your own emotions and situations in life.

    This song draws me to

    such a dark place... So save your breath, I will not care. I think I made it very clear. You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough? I only wish you weren't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end. I never claimed to be a saint... Ooh, my own was...

    "I've seen fire and I've seen rain.

    I've seen sunny days that I wished would never end. I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend..... But I always thought that is see you again." I love you, my friend. RIP

    Listen To Music

    I listen to music all the time, especially when i can't sleep. I just turn on my Mp3 player and lay on my bed and let the music lure me to sleep. My Mp3 player always running out of battery. :( Hate it when this happened.

    who I've been. Who I am hates who I've been. ..... And the things bottled inside have finally begun To create so much pressure that I'll soon blow up. ..... This is no place to try and live my life.

    Relief Of The Pressure

    When I get very angry, sad or anxious....I find that the right music can manage to calm me down and bring me back to center.  I seem to suffer from a mental clog when I get affected enough by a situation.  If I sit and listen to music (that is if I can find a chance to...
