    It's only good advice for people that have the luxury to follow their passion but terrible advice in the guts of life.

    Depends on the passion. Not all passions have equality productive results.

    my passion is stripping naked, oiling myself down, and dancing in the road. sure, other people are told to follow their passion. but when i do, i just get arrested!

    My passions change direction like the winds of a tornado, yet I'm always stuck inactive in the eye of the storm.
    Perpetual mood


    “Sometimes I think I have felt everything I'm ever gonna feel.
    And from here on out, I'm not gonna feel anything new.
    Just lesser versions of what I've already felt.”


    - look it up yourself

    It's just a way of prettying up the marketplace and pretending that jobs are actually hobbies so that the your labour can be profitted off of by others and it won't be that obvious since now newspapers and whatever websites these days can talk about ~following your passion~ with some posterboy with ridiculously good luck.

    Unless your passion is self-employment, in which case, good luck.

    ‘Follow your passion’ doesn’t have to be an either/or thing, imo. Calibrate your expectations when it comes to how stable or lucrative it might be, and how much you need it to be. What’s the endgame? Ideally, just a sense of purpose & fulfillment, I’d say. Different for everyone, though.


    If it’s truly a passion, there is no choice. You gravitate toward that dream. It’s part of you. You can explore different ways to bring in more income when what you love isn’t enough on its own.




    Or y’know.. just go through the motions of living. Until you’re not.
