Have Hope! #LookUp

When you have come through adverse childhood experiences such as abuse, neglect, death of a parent or someone you love, it changes you because it literally changes the way your brain works.

One way to gently change your Mind, is to lovingly look at the Music you listen to. Look at the lyrics.

I had to do this about 10 years ago when I realized that so much of what I was listening to, even if it was popular or had a great beat, was really negative.

Start looking at the lyrics of the songs you listen to. Every time you sing along, you’re repeating negative affirmations directly to your subconscious.

Look at Music that’s happy. Look at lyrics that are positive.

Here’s a popular song called “The Middle”

This, to me is a GREAT SONG!! The subject of the song is relatable and difficult, but it isn’t a “victim” song.

Look at your music choices and see what changes you can make to lighten up and give yourself something hopeful to put in your Mind.

Take a seat

Right over there, sat on the stairs

Stay or leave

The cabinets are bare and I’m unaware

Of just how we got into this mess

Got so aggressive

I know we meant all good intentions

So pull me closer

Why don’t you pull me close

Why don’t you come on over

I can’t just let you go

Oh baby

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle

I’m losing my mind just a little

So why don’t you just meet me in the middle

In the middle

Baby

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle

I’m losing my mind just a little

So why don’t you just meet me in the middle

In the middle

Take a step

Back for a minute, into the kitchen

Floors are wet

And taps are still running, dishes are broken

How did we get into this mess

Got so aggressive

I know we meant all good intentions

So pull me closer

Why don’t you pull me close

Why don’t you come on over

I can’t just let you go

Oh baby

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle

I’m losing my mind just a little

So why don’t you just meet me in the middle

In the middle

Looking at you I can’t lie

Just pouring out admission

Regardless my objection

And it’s not about my pride

I need you on my skin just

Come over, pull me in just

Oh baby

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle

I’m losing my mind just a little

So why don’t you just meet me in the middle

In the middle, no no

Baby

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle, oh yeah

I’m losing my mind just a little

So why don’t you just meet me in the middle, oh

In the middle

Baby

Why don’t you just meet me in the middle, baby

I’m losing my mind just a little

So why don’t you just meet me in the middle, middle

In the middle, middle

– Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey
