Why musicians deaths affect me so much

People always give me a hard time when I shed tears upon learning the death of a musician/artist/rockstar. It’s not like I knew the person. We weren’t family or friends. What that person gave to me was something a family member or friend never could. Solace. As someone who struggles with self worth on a daily basis, sometimes the only thing I look forward to each day is knowing I’m going to hear a great song. That song that makes me happy or sad or angry. That song that explains my emotions better than I can. They aren’t just celebrities, they’re what keeps me getting up every morning. When the music dies, part of me dies too. more and more I’m saddened by the loss of my favorite musicians. It hurts. If you feel that there is no end to the pain, if you feel things are never going to get better, please don’t be ashamed to talk to someone. There are other solutions. And more great songs.
