They hurt me.

After that happened, I thought:

‘Is it somehow my fault?”

Music is a Natural


Music therapy is the use of music to achieve measurable goals regarding mood improvement, anger management, or other skills.

According to The Tao of Music by John Ortiz, a conscious, systematic way to use music therapy for depression is to make an entrainment list.

It is called "entrainment" because repeated listening to the playlist trains the mind to go from depression to  happy in response to a sequence of songs.
