As a 'tween and a teen, I didn't have a problem with "bad words", they just weren't a part of my vocabulary . It wasn't until that transition stage between high school and college that those words creeped into my mouth. I began to notice that the music I was listening to was influencing my word choices, in addition to manipulating my emotions and behavior. I often felt stressed, angry or simply out of control. Please don't misunderstand me, I am not blaming the problems of youth on the music industry. For me the music was a slippery slope leading me to become a person I didn't want to be.
So I chose not to listen to it anymore. I found several local christian stations and have been listening ever since. I don't except anyone to agree or make the same decision and I don't feel awkward when people ask what kind of music I like, although I will admit I did at first. Music is like food, it nourishes the body and soul, I don't want to fill myself with nasty lyrics and innuendos. It is plain and simple. I like my music and frankly I don't care what your opinion is.
