I have a number of hobbies and there are times where I probably feel that the number is far too great. Yet each has its ebb and flow and I know without them I’d be a poorer person mentally. The pleasure I derive from them is also a very good safeguard and indicator of low mood.
Those hobbies that don’t fit or lose their sheen, do tend to ebb into inactivity. I find this all a healthy way to approach my leisure time(although I wish there was more of it!). I very rarely attribute negative thoughts towards any of my hobbies and have learnt to appreciate them for what they give me rather than being swept up in the politics that any big business is normally engulfed in.
To only have one passion, one sole hobby just wouldn’t suit my personality. Yet there does seem to be many of this type of persuasion. The media would normally class these folk as obsessed rather than passionate but either way is it healthy to be like this? Where do you go when that sole passion begins to be distilled by negative influences? When the joyful activity then turns to a hate-filled tirade on social media(am looking at you gamer gate), isn’t it time to reflect on what drew you to the hobby in the first place?
