This Explains Everything
I’m really proud of this one guys
The most beautiful deconstruction of the ‘left brain” “right brain” stereotype that I’ve ever read.
"I’m studying music therapy. I just finished observing a music program for children with disabilities, and I’m taking notes."
"So what’s something you observed?"
"Many of the children had some form of autism. And it seemed that playing music together gave them the satisfaction of contributing to a group and forming relationships, without the pressure of having to speak or maintain eye contact."
I would just like to say fuck you to everyone who made me feel inadequate growing up and ruining my self esteem for years. You all suck and I’m glad I don’t talk to any of you any more.
Pro Tip: Don’t tell depressed people how good they have it in comparison to others. They already know and already feel guilty about it. You’re making the problem worse.
That knowledge is probably a major player in their depression.
It’s March 27th and the tank is empty. But I’m still working towards the end of music school, on the 10th. For all of the stress, I really want to enjoy these last few days of my degree. A lot of time, energy, tears, pain, coffee, and some things I probably don’t realize have gone into this… How often does one actually stop to enjoy these moments instead of just hoping it’s all over soon?
