Why is music so important to me?

Some people listen to music to entertain themselves, people don't take music seriously, some just enjoy the music instead of the lyrics. I, personally see music as my anchor, my therapy, it helps me forget the world and all my problems and just focus on the music. I play music based on my mood when I'm sad I listen to sad songs when I'm happy I listen to happy songs. I have mental breakdowns and the only thing that gets me through it is by listening to music, it helps me to stop my over-thinking and to just breathe normally.

Many people have different ways to help with their anxiety whenever it is triggered, I use music to help with mine. And honestly, I think I would've gone insane if it wasn't for music saving me. It's like as if the music is my only friend.
