Music Can Help You In Mental Health Recovery

Music

In March 2018, I heard this song for the first time, I cried. I played it on repeat so many times the past few years! This song got to me so much, and I started using it every time I got really depressed over my situation. I still cry when I hear it, as it one of those songs that you can relate too in your own life.

This song is about not giving up, ever. Not even when things get bad and your anxiety and stress is high. This Canadian’s voice in singing this song, also pulls at the heartstrings. I like a lot of his music, but this song, came at a time when I needed it the most. I refused to give up and totally give in to tenant bullies and the smear campaign I was a target of. There were many times during 2018-2019 I wanted to give up and just give in to what other people wanted of me all the time and shut up defending myself, but I just couldn’t. It isn’t in my Blood.

If you can really listen to this song, and not cry at all, I would be surprised.

In My Blood
Song by Shawn Mendes
Released: March 22, 2018
Lyrics
Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood
Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing
I’m overwhelmed and insecure, give me something
I could take to ease my mind slowly
Just have a drink and you’ll feel better
Just take her home and you’ll feel better
Keep telling me that it gets better
Does it ever?
Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
No medicine is strong enough
Someone help me
I’m crawling in my skin
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood
It isn’t in my blood
I’m looking through my phone again, feeling anxious
Afraid to be alone again, I hate this
I’m trying to find a way to chill, can’t breathe, oh
Is there somebody who could help me?
It’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
No medicine is strong enough
Someone help me
I’m crawling in my skin
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood
It isn’t in my blood
I need somebody now
I need somebody now
Someone to help me out
I need somebody now
Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood
It isn’t in my blood, oh, oh
It isn’t in my blood
I need somebody now
It isn’t in my blood
I need somebody now
It isn’t in my blood
