Neera, a 25 years old girl, is struggling with anxiety. She does not know what to do about it. Whenever something goes wrong, she gets so anxious. She is scared of everyone and everything. She lives away from her family and this hurts her even more. She cannot think straight or take any decision without asking her family members.
Today some of her friends asked her to go to a party with them. Due to her social anxiety, she refused to go with them. But now this prompt decision of her is killing her inside. She is thinking that she shouldn’t have turned them down. If she were gone with them she could enjoy a little at least. But at that moment, she couldn’t decide what would be best for her. So she had to miss the opportunity.
Once her friends are gone, she called one of her closest family members to tell him about the incident which is killing her. He showed support for her but said that she should have gone with them to increase her socializing skills. Now she is even more anxious. She cannot stop overthinking her action. She wants to go now. But It’s too late already.
What should she do now? She is suffering. So to console herself, she has established a few explanations supporting her act. According to the explanations, she missed the opportunity because she is spending a lot of money lately and cannot allow herself to spend more unless it is necessary. Besides, she did not want it and thought it would have been a waste.
Forming these explanations has been helpful for her to calm her mind but not enough. What else can be done to do to calm herself completely? Yeah, she can go for the music therapy that she has learned about very recently. Music therapy is one of the most effective therapies to calm people’s minds by listening to music. It helps them in getting rid of their depression, anxiety, stress, and so on.
She is now feeling a lot better after listening to her favorite songs for a while. Not just music therapy, everything we learn in our life can be a great help for us whenever we are badly in need of help that we cannot get from anywhere else but from ourselves.
