What has learning how to play a musical instrument or music in general taught you about life? or how to cope with it?

Bro, music IS my life.



It makes me laugh when non-musicians say this (not that you aren't a musician, just saying cause it reminded me)

Genuinely saved my life. I used to be depressed, angry, and incredibly bored. Anyone who's ever been those all at once can tell you that's nto a healthy combination in the slightest. Music eased the depression, and the instrument ate the anger and boredom, and turned it into a useful skill.

I think it's more of an exaggeration as to their love of music but I do understand where you're coming from.

No man, I know what you meant.

The damage is done.

But seriously I hate those guys too. It still irks me when a lot of musicians say it as well.

Yeah your edit is exactly what I was talking about

just sit back and take it all in.

It's beautiful.

OT: writing music and playing music is honestly therapeutic to me, and helps me relieve a lot of pent up stress and emotion. I tend to get a bit antsy when I go a while without playing some instrument.

It gave me a way to express myself and possibly a future since I now study it. Not a drop of frustration goes to waste in the writing process and I´m a very frustrated person. Not to mention my violent moodswings that can perfectly be applied to which ever I´m playing. It also gave me oppertunities to see more of the world and meet more people.
