There is a good thing about being so sensitive: I have a better understanding of how other people feel when bad things happen to them. I am a good person to talk to; I will just listen. Sometimes, I will put my two cents in, but when I know that you are in pain or are hurting, I just listen.
Ever since I was a little girl, music has always been an integral part of my mind. Music lives in my head all the time. When I hear things, certain noises, it will actually trigger a song or two. I notice rhythms and I see music everywhere. To you, you might just see driving as a time to relax and enjoy the scenery, but for me, on occasion, the world becomes an orchestra and driving becomes a musical. I notice beats and rhythms all around. People will be walking to the songs that I am listening to, or the birds will fly in a certain motion; neither the birds or the people know that they were just involved in my own personal musical theatre.
Music is a way for a person to express themselves. You can cheer up listening to a song when you are sad, or you can become even more sad. Sounds stupid, but I remember, as a teenager, listening to lyrics and feeling the words as if they were written for me. The artist knew exactly how I felt. It seemed at that time that the only person that didn't get how I was feeling was my ex-boyfriend.
Music is also a way to put your mind at peace. I personally like listening to Enya to become calm and clear headed. I tried that whole classical music, but it makes me sleepy, then eventually the songs some to a point where they become loud and very excited; needless to say, this does not calm me down.
Music can also make you move. When I listen to some good ol' rock n' roll, I just want to get up and dance. I like dancing anyways, so I am kind of looking for any excuse.
