Does anyone else habitually, maybe even excessively, listen to music that has a depressing tone? Even if you don't, feel free to give input. I sure do. I don't necessarily do this because I want to intensify my emotions; I just enjoy the music that I listen to. It's awesome, and it so happens that it usually has a depressing tone. Maybe I like that it has a depressing tone too. As much as I like indulging in listening to said music, it does enhance my depression. The lyrics... the instruments... they all play a part in enhancing my depression. It has helped me cry and release emotional stress, but nonetheless, it's been harmful in excess. I'd like to ease up on my obsession, but unfortunately, I don't seem to like any other music besides metalcore/post-hardcore/emo, and there's not much else that I do besides listen to music. Perhaps I can start reading books again, but I don't do too well with silence. If anything, I could just listen to my music collection in moderation, I suppose. As a side note, I didn't know where else to create this thread, but I presume this is the right place.
