I started playing the piano when I was 5. It was exciting to learn something new, consumed with a desire to learn. l became dedicated to it. I played for over 12 years. From Chopsticks to Fur Elise to Can you feel the love tonight? I practiced even after my passion for it faded and I never reached perfection. But still I was dedicated to it. And then one day I wasn’t anymore.
So the question is, what is more important for a good relationship: passion or dedication? I’ve been dedicated and found it too tiring to maintain. But on the other hand I’ve felt passion and had it burn out and consume itself. I guess what I am still trying to figure out is how to maintain either dedication or passion.
