Somebody said it right that if life is a movie, music is its soundtrack. It is normal for people to underestimate the value of music. Some might see it as a distraction, some might see it as just some background to help them endure pain when they work out, and there a lot of people that honestly cannot do without it.
It is surprising how music can do as much as is changing people’s mood in a few minutes. The right song can get everyone hyped up in a party when the room was dull just a second ago. There are so many genres of music to care for anyone and their different moods.
LIFE IS A MOVIE AND MUSIC IS ITS SOUNDTRACK
Personally, music has been my safe haven. I went through a tough time. I was in hell, nothing seemed to be going the right way for me.
No matter how hard I tried to fix things they always seemed to get worse. Just as I was about losing hope, I found music. Like, I truly found music for what it could really be.
It became something I wanted to have around me. Music made me bring myself out of sadness and improved my mood.
It filled me with hope and gave me the strength to go on because I found myself genuinely enjoying it. If I was told music is God’s gift to a man I would believe it.
I did not feel like I was alone anymore. It was always there for me to block out the world when I felt overwhelmed. Slowly, I began to have something I could look forward to. Something that could act as a companion to me. I could totally relate to some of these songs.
Sometimes, the songs reflect the anger I feel deep down inside; other days, I feel peace take me into its arms while I listened to the soothing sounds. It made me focus more on things and I become more positive.
I started to feel myself become more relaxed as I let the lyrics flow through me. This made me satisfied with the things I have.
This made me find happiness again. I realized I could now set priorities and follow through with them. Of course, the music improved my personal life and I became more productive. It is still hard for me to be back to my usual self, but with music, I am getting there.
I have felt the healing effects of music, the way it heals the body, the mind, the soul, etc. I know I am not the only one that has gone through this and felt the magic music can do. To anyone out there going through a rough patch and in need of some therapy, music is enough to improve your mental health.
It did the trick for me and it can for anyone that is willing to give it a try. Music has been more than audio files to me. It can say it’s been my companion, my friend, and my safe place.
It has changed the way I see the world and I prefer this version of it.
