I would be 100% okay doing something I hate for work if it meant I could work part time and still have a liveable wage. I could "find my passion" in a job and still be miserable because I'm slaving away for shit wages that barely keep the roof over my head. It's misery.

Indeed. If you have no other income then passion jobs are only worthwhile if you can see some degree of financial success in the future. Otherwise you might just be spending the best years of your life chasing a dream... no guarantee at the end.

That doesn't stop people from doing it but I would like to hear more stories from people who've tried and failed... but nobody likes to talk about that. It can be bleak and heartbreaking.
