Music can shape your relationship

All Woman

People use music to heal, to get calm, to incite a certain type of mood – but it can also cause chaos. How can music harm or heal your relationship?

1. It influences your emotions/moods

Whatever you listen to will impact how you feel. It doesn't matter how much you self-talk positive things, your mood will be affected if the music is negative. It is therefore imperative to choose wisely what you listen to as it will surely affect your relations with others. For example, if you are consistently listening to music that degrades and influences women or men, or causes you to not trust or love, even if your partner is “perfect”, you will relate to him/her according to what you are listening to.

2. It can shape your reality

If you are constantly listening to music that encourages violence or infidelity, it can impact your mindset, which will encourage you to live what you are listening.

3. It pushes you to act

Ever listened to a song that reminds you about an ex-lover and all of a sudden you miss that past relationship? Some persons are even pushed by their emotions to call their ex-lovers, neglecting to face the real reasons why the relationship collapsed in the first place.

Be careful what you listen to as it can shape your reality!
