I want to get lost in your rock and roll

I don't really believe in cartharsis, at least not as something you do often, maybe as something you do rarely. What I mean is once in a while when emotions build inside you it can be helpful to release them, but if you do that often you often end up obsessing over the emotions your trying to release and they simply become a more prominent part of your personality. However, I do believe in music expressing emotions helping you get over the emotions. Now isn't it the same principle, the principle of releasing emotions? No. Well, maybe partially. Listening to music expressing your emotions does make you release them, but more importantly it helps you grow the emotions if the music is quality. If the music is quality stuff listening to it helps you mature your emotions into a more controllable state and that is often more helpful than simply releasing them.
