Anxiety and Music

Human by Krewella and In My Blood by Shawn Mendes.

These are the two songs we’re going to be talking about today. They are two of my favorite movies currently and each for a different reason and some very similar reasons.

Human by Krewella is a song I’ve been listening to for a while but lately it’s meant more to me. The chorus goes like this,

“They say pain is an illusion, this is just a bruise, and you are just confused but I am only human, I could use a hand sometimes. I am only human”

I love this because sometimes we’re going through things and people don’t understand. Especially with anxiety and depression people tend to shake it off or downplay things when you say you’re shad or having a bad day. They say things like it’ll be fine or you’ll feel better or just breath. They don’t understand that you’ve tried doing the things you love and tried feeling better and you even tell yourself sometimes that you’re just anxious or depressed and you’re actually fine but nothing helps. Nothing stops the tears or lifts the heavy feeling from your heart.

Sometimes we just need someone to understand that we’re only human and sometimes it’s all just too much.

The next song is a little more uplifting and inspirational in my opinion and that’s In My Blood by Shawn Mendes.

This song is sad and talks about wanting to give up and feeling nothing and insecure which I can definitely relate to but the chorus of the song is what gives me hope and which I find so inspiring. It says “I feel like giving up, but I just can’t it isn’t in my blood.”

No matter what you’re going through and what you feel or how you feel, you need to stick in there and fight through it. No matter what you can get through it. You are stronger than your anxiety and depression and anything you’re going through. Even if it doesn’t feel like it.

Beach Vacation

So I talked a little bit in a previous post about how much I love the beach and the ocean and how it helps with my anxiety and helps me de-stress. Well I found out recently that I am actually going to the beach in late July. Work and life has been particularily stressful lately and I think it will definitely help.

I will make sure to take pictures and share them from the trip and hopefully I will remember to schedule some posts for when I’m gone.

I talk about the negatives of anxiety and how it’s affected my past and my relationships in a negative way but I also wanted to share the positives of how you can relax and some things that can help your anxiety even if they can’t cure it. I think being close to nature and the ocean helps us just reconnect to our souls and focus just on us and the universe and Earth and just brings us peace and calm. At least it does for me.

I also am beginning to appreciate classical music and the lack of words. Just listening to the instruments is surprisingly calming. Reading is helping a lot too and I’m currently in the middle of re-reading the Harry Potter books that brought me so much joy in my childhood, hoping that I can bring back that joy and those feelings I experienced as a kid. It truly is magical.

To end this post I would like to share a quote from one of my favorite fictional characters, Albus Dumbledore

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of time, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
