Here’s a bit of a song I wrote a long time ago with some friends while we were studying together, ft. Pikachu 😏
I’m starting my postgraduate journey soon to become a Music Therapist, and I’m really excited about it!
I applied after I took a hiatus from everything music-related after my band fizzled out and stopped playing, when we formed I had just come out of a tough relationship and it honestly saved me, things were starting to happen for us and I was so excited about the career I had planned with this group of likeminded musicians, but that soon changed when one of the members decided the grass was greener, and cancelled all of our summer gigs for selfish reasons.
I was depressed about it for a good 6 months, and developed symptoms of agoraphobia and PTSD, along with already suffering with GAD! The symptoms were closely linked to the past relationship rather than what happened with my band.
I then realised the reason I was able to feel strong and happy before, was because I was making music regularly with others.
Since then I’ve been getting better, and playing more. It’s hard to pull yourself out of a rut, but your wellbeing is always worth working on, and don’t forget the things that make you happy ❤️ #musician #songwriter #selflove #mentalhealthawareness
