I Use Music As Therapy For the Soul

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 41,881 People

    Finding old music you used to love is like

    getting back in touch with an old friend. I love how when you find that one song, you instantly go back to that same feeling you used to have, or in that same mindset you were in when you heard it in the first place.

    If there's no one who understands you,

    there's always one song, one artist that does.

    I've found that even in my worst moments there

    is a song, a lyric, a melody that understands me and at that moment I don't feel quite as alone. Life isn't always easy but if I didn't have music I don't know where I'd be today.

    His fingers rest gently on the keys a soft

    gentle touch. A bond formed. His heart bleeds between the sounds of the black and whites before him. Tears sing a melody that resonates deep within as he coaxes musical poetry from reluctant ivory. I miss you... Where are you? Why are you not with me? Can you hear me? Can...

    I for some unknown reason I sing When I am

    stressed, I remember far back into childhood's hour how I'd spend my days outside playing and exploring nature, all the while singing to all my little creature friends.A song I enjoy singing too, lol... even though I am probably tone deaf.

    I can honestly say music is a really big part

    of my life, but then again I find it hard if it's not the same for everyone. I spend a good percentage of my days listening to music, whether I'm on my way to work, or other places. Music calms me down and at the same time it helps me express myself. I love to write with music...

    Don't you love the feeling

    when you listen to a song for the first time and you just instantly fall in love with it.

    Guitars

    If you were to take note of the callouses on my left hand, you could probably track my moods fairly well. When I have things on my mind - good, bad or ambiguous...my fingers start itching for my guitar.Through the years, I have expressed my emotion through various art forms, but...

    Listening to Mozart's Requiem

    for what seemed like the hundredth time, I find myself lost in a parallel universe, where I am breathtakingly tortured by my own wretchedness and the beauty of the melody. If I could cry, I'd shed all my tears for the way I feel as the notes and the words fluently and...

    I experience anxiety very often.

    Sometimes it keeps me from coming out of my room or being able to get out of a car if I see that the store or mall is busy. I very much dislike that this happens but it is normal for some people with Aspergers. But I can be calmed by certain opera music like the arias...

    Dear God I forgot how therapeutic this could be.

    I make music for me I make music

    as an outlet for control I make music to feel I make music to abandon this place, this difficult place inside of myself, and be a different element. Out of my element. Think about it, think about the music. No one will judge you there. No one will call you out on your madness...

    Music is nourishment

    for the soul. A song with just the right lyrics can motivate, the right melody can resonate with one's inner power, and the right rhythm can cause one's inner energy to pulsate again to the beat. There are times when I am depressed that I will sing a motivational song pouring...
