I was reading another thread that started me thinking about old songs that used to trigger me. Songs that while I was in the deepest throws of mental illness I would obsess over. Songs that to this day put me in a very bad place if I start listening to them.
I wanted to start a post about them and link some, to share with others some of the stuff I’ve dealt with, but the part of my brain that gets paid to make sense told me that was a really bad idea.
If it triggers me, it might trigger others, which would suck. Also, if I started listening to them again I’d just mess myself up.
So, here’s a song that does not trigger me. A song that helps when I’m down and calms me. Something positive.
Yes, I know this song was played to death, even I hated it for a while. But it’s really good and has helped calm and center me.
What songs are out there that do the opposite for you, calm and soothe not trigger?
