Life & Passion

Life is meaningless without passion. It sucks.

RE: Life & Passion

Passion makes life more exciting, but I disagree that life has no purpose without it.

Life & Passion

That's a pretty broad statement... passion for what? Things, activities, people?

RE: Life & Passion

Passion for me leads to pain because i care, because i am invested. Being invested is good if your working for results....

Life & Passion

Quote:Each interest or skill, then, is thought of as a means to an end. They might go somewhere with this one, an adult thinks with pleasure, as they look fondly on their child’s new coding hobby. “You could start a business!” someone exclaims with excitement to their friend upon trying their cupcakes for the first time.

That attitude kills the fun of hobbies for me.

I'm a really laid-back person; I tend to keep my passions hidden. There are people attracted to strong emotions-drama queens, emotional vampires, the Turds....and I simply don't want my passion to be leeched by them.

I agree with Cianna here:
Quote:Passion makes life more exciting, but I disagree that life has no purpose without it.

But I have a feeling I place (positive) passion on a higher position of priority.

Don't play chess with pigeons-they'll just knock over the pieces, shit on the board and strut about like they won anyway.
