I Think Music Is My Escape

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,112 People

    The only way I can escape myself,

    and all my problems is through listening and singing to music. Sadly, I'm to shy to sing while anyone's around and only do it when no one else is home. Which equates to only three times a week where I can let go.

    for most listening to music helps out on

    so many different levels. as for me, music is deeper. I'm an artist and my craft is music. I'm a piano player by nature, and a rapper by choice. I've only done it for fun really. I had a studio but only about 10 songs were done and that's was about 10 years ago. I gave it up to...

    I sometimes get the feeling

    that I can relate to the music that I'm listening too. It sometimes helps me make the decisions I make. For example there was a boy whom asked me to the dance, and music helped me gain the confidence to turn him down. (He was a player).

    Skrillex Is My Therapy?

    Yesterday something set me off into a depressive mood. Funny thing is.. It wasnt suppose to be something that would do that. To most it would be minor and it should have been. But I just got so overwhelmed with it and spiraled. Then I played some Skrillex. Yeah I know skrillex...

    My Escape

    I consider music my escape because I don't want to feel emotional pain which when I feel emotional pain it has the effect that I'm useless so when I listen to music it gets my mind off of the problem and negative effects of what other problems I have.

    I Don't Think, I Know

    I know for a fact that music is my one and only escape. I can run away from the world and all my problems when I have music. Music has the power to change your mood and emotions and in a second. I escape from whatever I am feeling through music. Music is the only thing that...

    Music Is My Escape From The World!

    I used to not be into music like I am. I use to not even listen to a song a day. But that was when I was 10... Now I'm 15 and listen to music everyday. I love to listen to new music, and old music. My favorites vary by day, how I feel, rainy, sunny, etc.. I will listen to a lot...

    No matter what's going on in my life.

    .however troubled, or sad, or depressed I might be..I feel safer knowing that I can make music or listen to music and I will get lost in the sounds and (for a little while at least) feel that everything is alright, and that I'm okay.

    Music Helped Me In Many Ways

    Every time I listen to music, I let out quite a bit of my darker emotions. I sing along, making the people on the bus stare at me, but I don't care that much. I do try to keep it as quiet as possible, though.I also play the guitar (self-learning) and piano (some years of music...

    Music has always played a big part in my life

    ever since I was little. It's my way of escapism, indie music works best, it's my favourite type. But it's amazing how anyone can get lost in a song, even by just a few lyrics. Even just one line of the song and people get hooked. I'm that kind of people.

    I am 12, that's why there's these girly songs

    everywhere. Whenever I am feeling down, sad, or even happy, I have certain songs to listen to. For example, if I'm just feeling down, I listen to Sabrina Carpenter or some Liv and Maddie. Sometimes I even listen to some Don't Stop Believing from Journey or even Carry on my...
