Help....? - December 4th 2012, 07:19 PM

Ok guys, so I am having this WEIRD problem.

First off let me just say I LOVE all kinds of music.

I am a fan of this band, but lately I haven't been listening to them as much. I have been listening to other kinds of music. The weird thing is that I have felt kind of "guilty" because I haven't been listening to them as much.

I guess what I really want is to move on from this part of my life. I still want to enjoy their music, and all music, but I don't want to feel like I am letting them down or feel guilty for not listening to them as frequently.

Please leave me any advice you have for me in the comments.

I see nothing wrong with it. Sometimes I stop listening to someone for a while then later on I'll listen to them again. This is perfectly normal in my opinion and you're not letting them down by not listening to them for a while.

Well, think about this logically for a moment. Is the band going to fail if you stop buying their music? If so, then honestly, they probably shouldn't be a band anymore, because if they can't sell their music, they probably aren't very good. Additionally, is the band going to know when you're listening to their music 24/7 vs. when you listen to one of their songs every now and then? Nope, so you're not letting them down by branching out and trying different things!

For what it's worth, I had a similar struggle with some websites I used to be a member of. For me, it was a matter of time and energy committed to those websites - I felt like I HAD to stay involved, because I had been a dedicated member for so long. I had to think about graduate school and my other interests, though, so in the end, I broke away from my black-and-white thinking, and realized it was okay to decrease my activity. Now I can go back to those websites from time to time, and not feel guilty about not logging on every day like I used to.
