People are multifaceted. A person can have more than 1 talent; more than 1 passion. Learn a new language or a new skill. But in a society where we work 9-5 shifts 5 days of the week and use the other 2 days to catch up on our sleep schedules and personal lives, when do we, if ever, cultivate the rest of ourselves?
I don’t think life is as short as people make it out to be. I just think we spend the grand majority of it doing things that we don’t enjoy.
