Why I love this song?
There are a lot of reasons why a song resonates with someone. Their past, their present, or prospects in their future. Maybe that songs lets a part of their soul rock out, or calms the turbulent waters of another part.
For me, it is anxiety.
It isn’t a new tale. As they say, a tale as old as time. But I have an anxiety disorder that presents itself in panic attacks. Sometimes crippling panic attacks that leave me feeling like my heart is going to explode and I am about to leave this mortal plain. I am not afraid to talk about it and It isn’t something I am ashamed of. Nor should I be anymore than someone who has asthma or acne. It is a hormonal disturbance I developed after I had my daughter and postpartum depression.
This song calms me. Maybe for those of you out there in this wide and beautiful world it will calm you.
As always, a nod to Drew at Sarcastic Book Geek for the #MusicMonday idea.
