I find that the word ‘passion’ really confuses young people nowadays. I teach teenagers and am trying to debunk the myth that they need to find their passion. Like you say, we use the term in the wrong sense a lot of the time and often flippantly, but what if passion is actually the wrong pursuit? I was told by a wise owl not to follow your passion but to make a choice and stick with it. As you put time and effort into crafting your skill, your passion will follow. That’s my five cents, anyway. Good read.
