Music serves many purposes, but one particular service it does is to lift us out of our loneliest and darkest moments.
Music helps us to tap into emotions that distracts us from negative thinking. When it seems no one cares to listen or we are not being understood, music unveils the deep hidden emotions and thoughts that we would have otherwise kept to ourselves.
These songs are by people who themselves have dealt with the unfortunate experience of having to fight suicidal tendencies…

I just want to dedicate this to anyone who may be having a bad day or may just be going through a difficult period in their life. Conversations around music is a good place to start. Somehow I have managed to find refuge here and I’m sure it is doing the same for many others. #StayPositive #MusicHeals
