Music has always been an escape for me in my life. Whenever I am stressed or just in a bad mood overall, I always just put on one of my favorite songs and sing along. Usually after just a few songs all my stress just kinda disappears into thin air. Music is Life. I say that because without music I believe life is pointless. Music is very key in my life. Music really affects how people get through things in their life. It can make a difference in someone's life. It can be the difference in whether someone can get through a hard point in their life or not.
Music really helps me get through the hard times in my life because i can just drift away in the lyrics in a way. I get caught up in the words and somehow it always calms me down. It relieves my stress to sit and think about the meanings of songs. Eminem is my favorite artist. I enjoy listening to almost any of his songs when I am down or feeling depressed. His music just always makes me remember that I can get through anything in my life no matter what. He went through so much in his life but yet he still turned out to be successful.
I remember a time when my parents were in the middle of their divorce, i was just down not depressed just a little lost. For a few weeks I took headphones pretty much everywhere I went, just listened to music pretty much 24/7. I was in my car after about a week and a half of constant music and I realized that I needed to focus on my future and making myself successful. I needed to worry about my life and what I wanted to do with my life. I snapped out of it and without music I don’t know how long I would have been down.
