im having a real hard time lately because im missing my ex. i dont know what to do. i guess i will stop listening to music throughout the day. i have always felt that hard rock and scream were inappropiate forms of music, but these last few months i have been listening to it more and more whereas i should be listening to hymns and talks.



Beautiful Christian Rick all day long... Try it, yu'll like it."

I'm with you    
"I don't miss my exes, but I miss having someone. I don't listen to anything but Christian music anymore. Other stuff gets me into too much trouble. I miss being able to listen to music at work. I share an office with 2 guys. The conversation gets pretty inappropriate at times. Hang in there!"

I try not to Should on myself    
"I hate the word "Should".

It may work for you... but it's never worked for me.
Enjoy your hard rock once and awhile... NO SHAME

I would hate life If I had to HUM or listen to a hymn for the rest of my life. HATE.
I like hymns from time to time... but I'll be honest... KLOVE was better for me than MOTAB. Christian Music really was a big part of my recovery. (not all christian music... but a lot of the songs were so good for me)

wishing you the asbolute best."

"I think it's fine to listen to music that isn't LDS or Christian in some way. That doesn't automatically make it bad. If the song is full of profanity or vulgarity or is just too intense, then, yeah, that'll probably drive away the spirit. But there's a whole world of music out there to listen to. Classical. Other types of instrumental (like movie soundtracks) or piano players (like John Schmidt, who's LDS). There are plenty of popular mellow songs too. As long as you can feel peaceful and uplifted after listening to it, you should be good. I've listened to some Christian, but the ideals in those songs can sometimes clash with LDS beliefs and it's just weird to me then. Anyway, don't feel like all you can listen to are hymns and talks. Just stay away from rap and screemo and death metal and things like that."

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "

— Boyd K. Packer
