They say that one thing brings us (humanity) altogether. That thing is music. Music has transcended time, languages, distribution methods, and more to become what it is today. Since I was young, music has been a part of my healing. It is not meant to therapy or medication but rather to aid depression/anxiety alongside other treatments. If I feel particularly sad or angry, sometimes blasting sad or angry music in the car does just the trick.
The thing about music is that it lets us know we are not alone in our emotions. It shows us that even celebrities like Ariana Grande or The Weeknd understand how we feel (because they likely have experienced the same sentiment). This helps us as humans to feel connected as opposed to feeling isolated and alone. Feeling connection naturally increases feelings of belonging. When we feel connected, our emotions are understood and validated.
Take the playlist below with a grain of salt. It is a modge-podge of songs I have compiled over the last few years, encapsulating many of life’s emotions/feelings. I like to put it on when I am in our feelings (sad, happy, angry, etc.). There is truly something for everyone on here. Please don’t hold it too much against me, but there are multiples oldies; but hey, like I said, it transcends time! If you hate a song on here, that’s cool, don’t listen to it, then. There are a couple of religious-ish songs on the playlist; if you want to skip them, please do. This in no way, shape, or form is meant to influence you or your beliefs. This is just what has helped us in the past. I hope you get something out of it too. If not, try to create your own. Be sure to share it with us! You never know who you could be helping in the process.
Music affects us all differently, and what could be meaningful for one person may not have any meaning for another. That is OKAY! That is the beauty of it, the unique connection. If you have time to give our playlist a listen, please do. If not, no worries, and cheers to you anyway!
