Soothe

Hi, Hey, Hello!

Music is my everything.

It’s my escape from everything. Music helps me switch the hell off from the world around me. I can get lost in it. I can forget about a song and then all of a sudden I get hit by a lyric from it and then I get immersed in the song again and it’s delightful. It’s like falling in love with it all over again.

Music is like my white noise. I listen to it on the train to and from work and sometimes I forget I am even listening to anything until I zoned back in and realise that I have somehow missed a couple of songs and then I zone back out again. Getting lost in that is my way of just disconnecting from everything.

If I have to do a journey without music then I honestly don’t really know what to do with myself. The silence sometimes when I am without music is deafening. It means that I have to think and actually be with those thoughts and to be honest that’s just exhausting. It does not make things very easy for me.

And it’s not that I use music to try and stop the bad thoughts, because they’re gonna come whether I want them to or not to be honest. But what it does is it means that I just don’t think about them for a couple of hours a day. I get some distance from them and then when I’m confronted with them again I’m in a more rational headspace to deal with them again.

It kind of works similarly to working out but I don’t do that everyday and that isn’t necessarily as accessible as music is. Music is always there for me to get lost in.

It’s the quickest way to get me to switch off. To allow me to get the headspace that I need. It’s almost foolproof. I can usually always find at least one song that I can listen to that will get the job done and that’s all I really need.

Music is my everything.
