what I truly don’t, and never will understand, is how someone can just leave their fandom for another. how can you leave your circle of friends who all have that single most important thing in common with you, friends who you could gush your feels towards the group who you both loved and admired with all your heart? artists whose lyrics, once upon a time, made you cry. or their songs with a beat and rhythm that made you want to get up and dance. how can the passion that you had, to the point where you would stay up for hours during the dead of night (maybe even on a school night) to watch them perform via livestream, just wither away? i’ll never understand how you can abandon a group of people who you were so deeply attached to, and the members who were so deeply attached to one another like brothers, or sisters. people who would make you laugh at their antics on the days where you felt you had no strength to even smile.
but now, for some reason, you leave. you leave the people who you thought you would always love until the day your hair turned gray and wrinkles appeared on your face. whenever a song of theirs comes up on shuffle, you’ll skip it. or maybe you deleted all their albums that came along with a much anticipated comeback. you’ll unfollow the members on twitter, and follow members from another group instead. eventually you’ll take down the old posters in your room and replace them with newer, more eye-catching ones. eventually you’ll forget about the group you loved so much and immerse yourself in the new one you fell head over heels for. old, yet sweet memories are forgotten to be replaced with newer ones. and soon, you don’t love that old group anymore.
this is what I will never understand.
Agree with you !!
I can’t imagine myself doing this one day
