    Music and Self-harm?

     

    Ive got a question, Ive selfharmed two years ago then stopped and six months ago i stared again. Ive aways been into more alternative, typical 'emo' stuff. And im wondering does this have anything to to with the fact that i self harm? I always feel better when im listening to music so heres the thing, Im gonna conduct i sort of survey.

    If you self harm comment that u do and what kinda music u listen to and we can see if there is a link

    Hi, i sh, and listen to what i suppose you would class as "emo-y", but i listen to the music cos i can identify with it, rather than cos it makes me sh.

     Hey there, I self-harm and I listen to sad music. I don't know if you would call it "emo music" but I listen to sad piano pieces, like the soundtrack from Sarah's Key. "Happy music" just doesn't appeal to me, really. I'll listen to it but I listen to sad music more.

    Heya. I self harm and I am also into alternative/emo things. I prefer heavy metal and rock style music. Slipknot and Black Veil Brides for some examples. (':

    I like Black Veil Brides, My Chemical Romance, Asking Alexandria...etc...
    Typical 'emo' style music, just because I like it <3

    haha, its weird, cus i listen to Demi too.. maybe its cus she just seems like a common inspiration since she went through a lot of stuff like cutting too..

    but i also listen to rock music like paramore, and i like beyonce too, but i also listen to sad or depressing songs.. my music taste is just all a bunch of weird i guess.

    anyways, just thought i'd share this, take care guys :)

    over the past few year i have self harmed and when i listen to music it does help in away and i listen to sad stuff to sometimes i listen to my chemical romance, evanescence, secondhand serenade, flyleaf, sia and christina perri but sometimes depending on how i feel i can listen to music and still cut myself it just depends i really have a hard time with my emotions and i hate myself so i take it out on myself by cutting.

    but i do know what you mean by music helping sometimes :)

     I listen to Asking Alexandria, Slipknot, Chelsea Grin, Blessthefall, Black Veil Brides etc.. I sh before I got into all them and tbh think the whole 'emo' thing is right, it's a stereotype not a way of life. I listen to them cause I can relate to all of them :)
