Music has been my therapy for as long as i can remember. I think it’s safe to say that everyone agrees with the famous saying “music is life”, but music is more than life (if possible), it is almost impossible to find a person who doesn’t have a connection with music. I can tell you what music I was listening to at any time of my life and what I was going through; it serves as a memory jar because every song I listen to has a story to tell about me. My love for music knows no bound or genre.
Music has to be the most beautiful creation of humanity; how can something you can’t see or touch impact your life. Even Albert Einstein agrees with me; he said, “if I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music” I also think in music most of the time, but I can’t go into music because I don’t want to send the likes of Beyoncé and Rihanna out of the industry (P.s I sound like a screeching banshee when I sing).
Why Music Is My Therapy
Music has always been my best friend; it has been there for me through it all. It’s my therapy session, primarily through my insecure days. All I need to do is play a hip hop song on the highest volume with my earphones, and the world becomes my runway. I am presently listening to Masego’s old age; music inspires my writing.
I have a tremendous ear for good music; my friends call me the “jam plug”. If I discover a new album or song, I get so happy, like eating a meal and remembering you have your chicken to eat right after. You probably think I am crazy; I agree that I am crazy over music.
My playlist comprises different genres of music. My go-to artists are; Masego, Nf, Joyner Lucas, Jhene Aiko, Ladipoe, Santi, Boj, Ajebutter, Tems, Tierra Whack, Odunsi, Nonso Amadi, Hopsin, and so many others. I could go on, but the list won’t end soon.
Whenever you feel down, I recommend you listen to music; it always makes me feel better. I think artists are mini gods to be able to create something beautiful enough to strike emotions. I would love to have a one-on-one encounter with some of my go-to artists so I could pick their brains; the way they think has to be excellent. I would also want to hear new sounds from you guys, so please comment on an artist you think I should check out.
It has been established over the years that music can be used as a form of treatment for people who suffer from anxiety; we could also use music to ease pain. Music helps with memory problems, reduces blood pressure, low self-esteem, and many other disorders. It’s called music therapy; no one truly understands why music has such an intoxicating effect on our emotions.
Music has been solely rooted in us as humans, and it’s underrated; it might vary with every individual, but in all, they are similar. There are numerous benefits of music; whatever you may be going through, there is always a song that would make you feel better. Music is good for you.
Music gives you a sneak peek at different cultures that exist in the world today as we explore the different types and genres of music. Learning and understanding the history of a particular genre or style of music helps you connect with the music and the indigenous group of people the music originated from.
