I Listen to Music When I'm Upset

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 32,940 People

    I listen to music a lot

    because it makes me forget about everything. I'll put my headphones in and turn the music all the way up so I can barely think, but sometimes the lyrics explain so much and my eye get all teared up haha. Music is mostly my therapy.

    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.

    And it helps, because you can find songs

    that relate to your own emotions and situations in life.

    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.

    Mind over matter, that is what a friend of mine

    has told me. And tonight I lay, deep in though. I think not of anything in particular, rather, I let my mind wander. To whatever may come. I lay my bed, listening to song that holds meaning to me. Song that gives me, as my very good friend said, hope, and strength to move...

    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...

    This probably sounds crazy but, music... Well there is always a song that defines how I feel more than actual words can. When I'm sad, happy , overwhelmed, ect... I listen to music. It's like the music takes me to a different place were everything just... Disappears. It's just me...

    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.

    For some reason, music calms me down.

    That's why I've chosen music over cutting. When I'm upset, I lock myself up in my room, close the curtains, stick in my headphones, and listen to the specific playlist I made for when I'm upset. After letting out all of my emotions, I calm down and just read a book or write.

    This song has been a favorite of mine

    for a long time. It always comes to mind when I'm feeling especially alone and/or hurt. It was written for Big Kenny's sister who was a domestic abuse victim. I've never been physically abused and I wouldn't ever try to pretend to try to say that I can relate to that. But I...
