From which you conclude:

how?

Background knowledge and having talked with Alien in the past (I hope I'm not being too presumptuous here).

Also, major life changes are usually difficult, even if they are positive in nature.

Yeah, quite a bit  :laugh:

I've actually been in really good spirits the last few months, I'm doing better than ever at the moment.

Me and classical music have been on our own adventures, seen the world and come back in a new mindset. It just happens that at the same time that I was becoming disinterested with classical music; I was being drawn to other topics, hobbies, studies and arts. But as most of you'd have noticed - I was already heavily leaning towards film taking over my life last year, anyway  :laugh:

It is good to see you back. What you know about classical music will enrich other parts of your life, and other parts of your life will enrich classical music when you get back to it. (I'm talking long term here, since you have about five more decades before you need to worry about hitting threescore and ten..)

Well, that's great news!

Apparently some people realize that music is just a diversion from or ornament to actual life, not real life.

Psst, don't tell the composers and artists  :D

But seriously though, not having a good balance between the two is very detrimental  ???

It tends to be that either; art is a piece of entertainment in ones life, or one lives life through art   ;)

It's true, ain't it  0:)

I guess I am living a fake life from studying and making money out of music.

I have a job and I make money from it, I don't consider it my life. The core of life is human relationships, and of course you may have human relationships which revolve around music.
