Many of us have found music at some point that has helped us through hard times, different experiences, or taught us life lessons that help define us as a person. Music often carries messages, moods, emotions, and experiences from the composer. It can trigger many emotions to the listener, whether it be sorrow, hope, anger, solace, or even joy. As somebody with a deep connection to music, music has the power to change my mood and personal outlook on life. As some of you may know, I struggled with depression for a couple of months nears the beginning of last year. It was so bad that I had to quit my job and take up counseling. During those couple of months, I listened to a lot of music. A certain song from Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia always came up and calmed me. It's in the spoiler below (and no, I'm not Rick Rolling you today ) Spoiler Music with deep emotion exemplified such as this triggers something within me, allowing me to de-stress and decompress. If you have finished the game (heck, even if you haven't), this song obviously has some deep meaning to it [I'm NOT the ocean's gray waves, whatever that means]. Is there any music that has changed you as a person? What kind of music helps you to stay calm?
