Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 33,266 People

    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.

    Understanding

    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...

    Mom just told me when they go to Worcester

    during the Easter break I can't go with them cause I have lessons. Upset doesn't describe how I feel... I hope she changes her mind soon. Till then, my playlist will console me.

    A Theme Song For My Soul.

    Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness. ~Maya Angelou Music takes me where words can not. Music does not judge me or patronize me. Music empowers and defines, words wind around moments and memories. Each time...

    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.

    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.

    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.
