What if your passion becomes a burden?

Why do passions sometimes feel like burdens ❓❓❓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It feels a little ungrateful of me to admit that I have felt and still feel at times, that my passions are sometimes burdens to me. When I know that there are people in the world who wish they had a skill or ‘gift’ to feel so fulfilled by and to share with the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the reality of it is, that because I want something so much, it hurts 1000 times more when results are not being seen or when things are moving slower than I expected or recognition is not at a level I had hoped for. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Talents, gifts, passions. These are qualities people admire — but some may not realise how these things can be a burden and a source of fear. To use your ‘gift’ involves a risk of being rejected and of being wrong. But to not use your ‘gift’ is also just as risky, you risk not being fulfilled and regretting not having the courage to go forward and pursue what matters to you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our passions are our burdens because even after all the bad stings - the rejection, the being wrong, the judgement and the disappointment; the idea of giving up is just unfathomable to us. It’s definitely a thought - but it is never an option. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So my advice to you is to be persistent, be courageous, be confident and let people hear, see or listen to your gift what ever that may be. Because the Titanic would never have won an academy award if the script just stayed in James Cameron’s head! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I would also just like to remind myself and you of these 3 things when it comes to your passion ✨: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. Create 2. Refine 3. Improve ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By doing all these things passionately your input will eventually be well-received. By someone. Somewhere. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It will be scary and it will hurt at times but just know that’s normal and part of the Passion Project Process. #yougotthis ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comment is you needed to see this 👇🏽
