    I turn the music louder

    so I wouldn't hear my thoughts, but it's stupid because the lyrics remind me of what I'm trying to forget.

    And it helps, because you can find songs

    that relate to your own emotions and situations in life.

    It used to make me feel better.

    ..now it´s just a distraction from the voices in my head telling me to end it all.....but honestly every song sounds the same now...plain emptiness in all these lyrics....and i don´t know what to do

    Music is therapy..when I'm mad I don't have to

    drink or smoke I just listen to music and let the beat take my helplessness into the notes that carry us away from our problems.

    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...

    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.
