Music is a huge part of our lives and is almost a companion of some sort. No matter what mood we are in, there is always something to listen to that will either make our mood worse or improve it. If you're feeling unhappy or sad over a particular event in your life, you may wish to listen to more cheery music. If you're feeling uncertain of something, you may have a certain song that guides you through your troubles.

Whenever I am feeling down, I tend to do the opposite of what I should and listen to depressing music. I guess in some weird and wonderful way, getting more emotional through music will calm you a lot quicker than you like to think. Allowing emotions to build up inside you for hours, days or even weeks at a time will surely have you in a depressive state forever. Listening to music that matches the way you're feeling can sometimes be a good form of medicine, providing you're not feeling suicidal, in which case it's obviously best to avoid such triggers.

It is the same with almost every situation. If you're in the mood to dance and be active, you're going to want to listen to something upbeat and catchy. If you're a writer suffering from writers block, music is a huge help at times, at least it is for me. Sometimes we go through phases whereby music is just as dull and pointless as a darkened and abandoned room. However, I do believe music plays a huge role in our lives and can influence the decisions we make at any given time. Do you feel this way about music? Have you ever had to make a very tough decision and played that favourite song to help you weigh up your options? Ever felt really low or really high and listened to the sounds of that oh so familiar track? Let me know in the form of a comment!
