Sometimes when music is on, the stop button can't be close enough. Often, people talk about music being something that helps them to feel better, but this isn't always the case. I can't give any 'diagnoses' or specific reasons for why this happens...but I thought I might open space for the conversation.
Some people have never been able to listen to music. It's just noise. For others, there was a time when music was a large part of their life, but for known or unknown reason
One thing that I always notice in my work - is that adults are often afraid to make music or sometimes engage in music therapy because they might get it wrong. Why? I mean as children we're always trying something new - making up our own games - unafraid. But something happens and we lose that courage to just have a go. Our education system is set up for us to get jobs and that there is a right way and a wrong way. So you either keep trying till you get it right or you get it
Thanks to the world of social media, I was introduced to this video approximately 18 months ago - which inspired my interest in 'shame resilience.' I was always interested in vulnerability and connection - and Brene Brown put it into the language I was searching for!
