Hey Hatton

We are all different on our journey home. All , that really matters is doing what is right by ourselves. And, being Self Compassionate . Not , doing anything that harms our sprit or soul eh . Bing true to oneself . Offering help to those that may want help .

I was surprised at number of homeless in Manchester on Sunday . There was this one guy on Deansgate, sat on the floor not looking at anyone. He looked bedraggled and beat . A sign at his side read..... please help , I need money not for drugs but to live. I went up to him and gave him money . Saw his face light up he looked me in the eye and said may god bless you . I noticed and ear piece and asked was he listening to music . His answer surprised me . He said a guy had passed by earlier and gave him the mini iPod . Music was soothing him . Somehow I know that when the battery runs out he will find a way of recharging the device .

He got up gathered his belongings and called at the nearest food store and came out with a sandwich and a bottle water .

He was lost , although he is down on his luck I gave him hope . As did the guy before me. And maybe others after .

Hopefully , I try to do that on here . Music saved me from myself . He could so easily have been me.

All I trying to say is go do what is right by you .

Bloody hell Declan that reads depressing better go and get on with my work

Such wise words!
I imagine more of a Jiminy Cricket character than a Dylan! ;)

Ok so I am feeling bad now. Lesson to self - keep random thoughts in head !

Bubblegum - perhaps I should have 'given a little whistle' before commenting.

That's a lovely compassionate tale and your kindness does not surprise me nor that music can help anyone. Trust me you have already helped me too. In one of my other posts I asked why does it still hurt so much and you replied bluntly but truthfully- because I allow it to. I think this more than anything has stopped my wallowing and has given me a more positive outlook.

So thank you Declan / Dylan / Jiminy, Today is a Linkin Park day !

Do not feel bad . I have taken no offense whatsoever.
You created a good post . That's the way to go , get yourself and stuff out there .
Hatton , there are some that like you and some that do not . I wouldn't worry one little tiny bit .
What is most important is you and your healing . Finding you again , learning to say no. Being true to self . Wishing the best for others .

I have made mistakes big mistakes . And , paid dearly for them . We learn a lesson we move on . We , don't learn we can become stuck . And , we do not want that . Biggest lie for me was believing that I needed my ex to survive to live and to grow .

You carry on it's your journey and if you want to share your journey with others then good for you . It will help others .

Smile . It's a wonderful day

All,

Just wanted to thank everyone for their contribution to the thread, it's been great to hear music that I've never listen to before - great to understand it's not just me that defaults to music in times of need.

Declan, your tale is heartwarming :)
