My Fatal Obsession

31 Mar

A reader commented yesterday that it is a very rare soul indeed who can tell the difference between obsession and passion in their own life. He believes that we really need honest friends to tell us the ‘damn truth” when our obsession is killing us.

Obsession kills us, passion breathes life… so I think you will agree that it is important to know the difference. Interestingly many of the homeless people I meet in LA vehemently claim not to be homeless and to actually have film or record deals. Could this be obsession leading to death, or are they just really determined?

Do talent and success help us differentiate between the passionate and the obsessive? I am passionate about rugby but I sure can’t play.
