Songs that healed me
You probably don’t know this, but I’m a major music enthusiast. I take pride in the fact that I have really good taste in music too. At least, that’s what I think. It’s almost like, without music there is this void in me that can’t be filled. Music is my getaway car.
When things looked blue and grey for me, music was there to pull me out, it healed me. Music is undoubtedly the best medicine for your mental health. So, here’s a little playlist I put together in hopes to cheer you up in your sorrows. Grab your earphones, turn on Spotify and get listening!
This is a letter from me, to you.
