MBRP straight pipe and Turbo PSI question

I installed the MBRP PIPING lol since I went straight pipe. I have the muffler and cat if it gets too loud for me. But my concern is, I do not remember if with the stock exhaust my turbo always ran active. Now that I am straight piped my turbo is always running. When I give it gas, even a little the psi is usually at 10+. Like I said, it may always have been running when I had stock exhaust but never paid any mind to it since I never really heard it unless I ripped on it. So with a straight pipe, is the turbo always being used? If so, is that wearing the life out of the turbo? Any worries or concerns I should have?

The turbo only actuates when you apply the pedal past 50% while under 30 MPH.

The turbo is always "running" it's whether it creates any amount of boost is that you are seeing/hearing.

See: Howstuffworks "Inside a Turbocharger"
