I Use Music As My Escape

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,132 People

    I love music. I have a different playlist

    for every mood I have. When I need to escape reality for a while I plug in my headphones and zone out. Sometimes it's accompanied by a book that goes along with the playlist and helps me escape further and others just with me staring at the ceiling and singing along. My iTunes...

    I looooove my music, thankfully work let me

    listen to my iPod all day. Depending on my mood depends on what I listen to. I'd be lost without music. Music is what feelings sound like :)

    Floating Eargasm Trance.

    Sometimes when I feel sad or have a really bad day music is one of the few things that can make me snap out of it. I’m using a technique I use to call, as the title says, “floating eargasm trance” quite a silly name I know but I stick with it for now.What I do is basically...

    Cold Water...

    When two people love each other, truly love each other, can God stand between them? Do you think God would stand between them? Is it not enough to just believe? Can there ever be a good foundation to stand on with the strength of love shared and to know the other believes...

    Everyone has a way to escape from things.

    I use music(drawing and writing to but in focusing on music) to escape daily. Music is my life I don't think I can live without It.I think if I didn't listen to music I would be ruined. Music helps me in so many ways and helps me heal my emotional wounds that are still slowly...

    Bye Bye Miss American Pie...

    I escape into my world, my freedom, my passion when I listen to music.  It is an alternate sense of self one that is portrayed by someone else.  It helps to know you are not alone and music does that either fictitiously and realistically.

    You ever listen to the lines of your favorite

    songs and just find yourself drifting away from the bad moments of reality, to a peaceful place, far away? I do this almost every day. I am bipolar and this form of therapy really motivates me to relax and just let go of what is bothering me at that moment. I guess it is my way...
