I read this line today that really resonated with me:
“Nobody will ever see the importance the way you see it.”
If you’re the kind of person who feels passionately about the things you love, whether it’s film, music, fashion, writing, art, horticulture, B&D, physics, hunting, architecture, philanthropy, guns, ornithology, medicine, psychedelics or food – life will be much easier and less frustrating once you understand this.
When you are in the throes of being immersed in discovering something that is life changing, of course you want to share it with other people. Unfortunately, that is really the last thing you should do, because they won’t get it.
I’ve found that once you get into this stuff you’ll quickly discover a community (if not an entire subculture) who shares your obsession.
Just don’t expect your friends and family to be part of it.
You’ll save yourself a lot of frustration.
