How Not Having A Passion Is Harming Your Relationships
Having a passion might seem like something only available to those who don’t have to work. Passion? You ask. You have a job. You work long hours. Where would you find time for this passion? Well, it doesn’t have to take over your life. But, if you don’t have a passion, that issue itself may be affecting your life. Think about it. Without a passion you simply live to eat, sleep, and repeat. That’s it. You don’t have any surprises to look forward to. You don’t have the magic of what could be in the air. Possibilities are limited. And that can lead to depression. Don’t think about having a passion as some unrealistic dream of making millions of dollars as an artist. Think of it as an important life force. Having a passion isn’t all about the result. It is about how it affects your mindset every day and that affects all of your relationships. Here is how not having a passion is hurting your friendships and romantic relationship.
You don’t understand those that do
You can’t possibly grasp all of the work and hopes that go into pursuing a passion. You think you can, but you just can’t unless you also have a passion. So when your friend’s manuscript gets rejected from 40 publishers, or nobody shows up to your boyfriend’s self-produced play, you just can’t emphasize on the level they need you to.
