I don’t think anyone does. But, that's how it goes for some people.

I wish I had some kind of special talent that I could sell to others. The beauty of doing what you love whilst being able to financially provide for yourself just seems so amazing, so romantic. It’s almost storybook, in a way.

But, sadly, it’s not in the stars for most people. Most of us will be corporate wage-slaves our entire lives. Sad, isn’t it? So much human potential, wasted in front of industrial-sized stove tops and in office cubicles.

I really envy you people on this site that get steady commission streams and run Patreons or whatever else it is that you do, you know? I know it's not all sunshine and rainbows, and I know it can actually get really, really hard sometimes. But, still, being able to make any kind of extra money (or even making your craft a full-time job) off of something you do for fun? None of you will ever realize how jealous I am of someone like that, whether it be an artist, a musician, an athlete, or what have you.

So, don't ever give up on your talents or skills - it can carry you places. It can carry you to places other people that do not have that talent will never, ever reach, no matter how much they want to.
