Re: Too Obsessed?
if it is taking away from everything else in your life, then it is too obsessed, but if it is just your greatest passion, then its fine. My mom used to think the same way until I started being a lot more active with the drums rather than just practicing an hour a day for no real results. Now she has realized that drums are pretty much my life. Of course, i have become addicted to drums- I'm on vacation right now, but still posting here, and when I put away my drumset before coming, it felt like burying a deceased family member. Also, I have relapsed and have re-taken up guitar since I can't go a week and a half without playing some sort of instrument!
I think your mom just hasn't had time to realize that drumming is your passion and dedication, like some kids have with football or basketball or cars or whatever else.
