There are some times when you can’t stop listening to one particular song. It might last for quite a while.
This happens because some songs are made to be played on repeat. The other side of the equation is our personality and the things in a song we can relate to. To put it simply.
When this happens to me, I usually intentionally listen to the song as much as possible. To become annoying or boring sooner. I also tend to explore the meanings and feelings behind it.
It’s harder when you’re repeating some really depressing songs. I still wouldn’t avoid the music. Because there are obviously some feelings that must be released. Music is a perfect tool for it.
I know I’m repeating myself from time to time, but this is really important. Feelings are like poo. They need to be expressed on a regular basis, or they get stuck.
This is where plenty of unnecessary anxiety comes from. And some pains, aches etc. You can prevent this from happening.
It’s easier when you finally realize that negative emotions won’t kill you, nor will they hurt you. They will rather heal you, if you just let them be.
Resisting and avoiding them can have right the opposite effect.
There is another thing when you don’t actually listen to the song anymore, but your mind does.
We’re talking about the earworm in this case. This can be quite an annoying mind bug too.
This was on my playlist for quite some time now.
Do you have any particular advice how to speed up the process and stop listening to one song only?
