Think of it the other way around. People listen to music because they are depressed, music does not cause depression, it is simply a common form of coping.

It's because it's turned around.. People don't get depressed because of the music, people turn to listening to the music BECAUSE they are deperessed.. It's the same with killers playing video games. They most likely don't become violent from playing the games, but play the games to blow off the steam they have, and prevent violent acts, I know I did this myself.

IMO Music is the best thing in the world
It can bring out many feelings while expressing some.

I understand what they meant. They aren't saying it causes teen depression. It's saying that if they listen to music that often it must be because they were already depressed and need to listen to that much music to cope.

Music, happy or depressed. Choose one.

People who obsess over these ******** moneytized twitter accounts are 8.3 more times likely to be depressed b/c they are depressing, saying that everything you're doing is wrong.

uberfacts is a hype-style twitter account that posts some cool, true facts and then the other 85% are complete ******** , just to make people go "WOW" and click that retweet button. Then they post ad links to make themselves money.

I'm assuming it's following the idea of listening to music, and never not listening to music.
It's one thing to use music to destress and another to use it to block yourself off from the world.

That particular account has been wrong on a number of occasions.

It depends if you are listening to girls generation or Bieber for that length of time. One makes you feel upbeat, one super depressed.

correlation =/= causation

That said, music can be both the cause of and solution to problems, so it can go both ways, but it's generally more helpful even if it does make you feel more depressed for the moment.

People have got to start realizing that when it isn't so extreme that it's harmful to you, depression is a useful and often necessary human function. It's your body and feelings telling you that you've got a lot of **** to work out and that you should think hard about your problems rather than ignoring them, in the hopes that eventually you'll solve them.

In the same way, generally music is helpful even if you're depressed and listening to depressing music, because that's generally something you need to get through and past, not something to ignore or cover over. So just because music makes you more depressed doesn't mean it isn't still good for you emotionally and psychologically most of the time.
