    Music Is My Sanctuary

    I can't live without it. It soothes me like nothing else can. It's helped me through the toughest times of my life. I'm not much of a talker, so I really let music do the talking for me.

    Music Is My Soul!!!

    Music Is Like Medicine

    without music people would have no inspiration and self discovery. We would have trouble relating to other things. It also gives off a wholeness in the heart and soul. lifts up your head. can possibly mend a bent heart and actually makes people want to make music.

    Music Is Like Air To Me

    People need so many things to keep them going- a loving spouse, a six figure salary, frequent shopping spree etc. I need only one thing. Music. Any kind of music works for me. As long as it has a definite melody. I can listen to anything ranging from devotional to modern pop...

    Id go nuts without it.

    I listen to everything from country to blues. Music is good for the soul. It expresses who you are. It describes how you feel when you cant find the words for yourself to speak from your own heart.

    Everywhere

    I listen to music pretty much everywhere. I always have my ipod on me. Music helps me function- I have anxiety disorder, and as long as I'm listening to music, I can get through situations that would otherwise cripple me.

    Survive? I Can't Live Without Music!

    I'm always listening to music. Whether it's on the way to school, or on a road trip, or even when I'm studying, my headphones are plugged into my ears, blasting away music.  When my parents are home, that's when music helps me the most. As soon as they come into my room, I turn...

    I remember when I didn't have my headphones

    because I lost them. I don't like when others can hear my music so I didn't listen to any for a month. It was my good and I remember being so happy when I bought new headphones. Moral of the story I love and need music!

    Medication For The Mind

    Life is sh*tty. I'll say it. Unless you've somehow been blessed with riches, love and luck, there are going to be times in life when you just really want to walk away from it all. More often than not, that's my story. I just want to up and leave my life. Walk out the door and...
