How do you know when you've found a passion, and it's not just an addiction?
I think finding a passion feels like you’ve found a part of yourself. It feels like you’re doing something you were made to do, something you were born to do. And I think an addiction feels as if you are pushing yourself further away from who you are and it can feel as if you’re trying to distract yourself from what your soul truly desires.
A passion opens you up to opportunities and makes you feel as if you’re thriving. You desire so many things, but you know you don’t need any of it to feel alive.
An addiction shuts you in and makes you feel as if you’re barely surviving, that you need whatever it is just to survive.
