It is a blessing to feel things so deeply because when you are in the Moment, there is nothing like it. You feel great! It is also a curse because when a breakup happens, it takes you so much longer and it is harder for you to recover.
Everything you do, you must have passion. My proffesor is so obsessed with passion, it has been nailed into my head to be a great writer, do it with passion, love and enthusiasm. Love what you do or do not do it at all.
