Sometimes you hear a song and it speaks to your heart. A situation, feeling, or memory can be hard to explain until you hear it through music. A song can come on and take you to a different place. It can make you feel sad, happy, excited, anxious and many other types of emotions.
Words have a definition. They have one meaning, but music can have infinite meanings. Words can tell someone a story but music allows them to live it. It makes them feel like they are there in the story of the music. You are lost in the moment. One piece can be taken in thousands of ways and can bring memories back for a person.These can be different for each person listening to the music. Music is unique and personal. People have strong connections with music.
There are all kinds of music. Classical music can calm you, Slow music can make you reminisce or even become sad, Hip hop makes you want to jump around, and these different genres can evoke different feeling for each person. There is no limit to the impact music can have on people.
Sometimes there is nothing more therapeutic than sitting alone listening to a song that speaks to how you are feeling. It can be better than talking about your feelings or trying to explain how you feel to someone. It can be a sanctuary when you need to decompress and just let everything sink in to understand how you are feeling or what you need to do.
