Music is a life saver, no doubt, and I have no idea what would I do without it.
People say you can lose yourself in the tones of instruments and voices but, for me, there’s more. I’m not a people person tbh so one of the things I hate the most is when I’m forced to be like one on ne with someone I don’t know well, then my stomach feels heavy and my mind is confused and I feel like I’m about to break down. BUT when I have headphones and see someone I know I just wave and act like “yeah, hi, but this music is very good, I don’t wanna chat”. And people take it, music is an excuse, acceptable one, which helped me a lot. Obviously can’t use it in every situation but when I can I do.
