In my country I used to be a musician who frequently did tours and stuff. When my girlfriend was pregnant with our son, I simply didn't have the time and had to give it up. Right now I'm a bit more stable (not as busy, but still too busy for regular gigs) and just don't feel it anymore.

Meh, I think it's natural for a person's interests to sway every now and then. Especially if you binge. Like watching entire series of Anime at a time, generally gonna want to take a break for a while.

I think everyone grows out of some of their hobbies or interests sooner or later. Growing up I went through various hobbies such as stamp collecting, rock collecting, and others. Usually my interest waned after awhile due to various things - for instance I got so many stamps that it was difficult for me to find an album that had enough pages to hold the ones I had from certain countries. Most of the albums out there only alloted 2-5 pages for each country. Once my collection exceeded that I kind of gave up because there wasn't a good way to store the stuff. With my rock collection, I had to keep cutting it down due to limited space in my room and it was hard to get samples because as a child I didn't have the kind of cash you needed to buy some of the really cool rocks and minerals.

Your interests change over time and you become more interested in some things and less interested in others. It's natural. Sometimes you come back to old hobbies because something will spark your interest again.

I agree with you,people require new stimuli to keep themselves occupied-.there is only so long that you can collect rocks for example before you feel that you have seen it all,or things that mattered anyways.

Too much of one thing does that. Kind of like how we need a varied diet. I mean, you can go for maybe ten years on pizza, and during this time you might not even realize your decrease in health, but you have, and will rot at your core much quicker than if your diet was richer. If you withdraw, and isolate yourself over an extended period of time, you will see a similar effect, as you won't get enough external stimuli (intellectual as well as emotional) to work with. We get most of that stimuli from human interaction.

When I was younger, I took a break from playing video games from 3rd grade-5th grade. Nowadays I lost my passion to draw and play games like Love Live School Idol Festival. I guess it's due to me drawing and playing a lot that I started to slowly not be as passionate about them as I was before.

I haven't watched anime in the last 6 or 7 months but one thing I have a burning passion for is music and it's something that hasn't waivered on me yet.

Yep this is def true. Sometimes you just get bored of things or grow out of them or etc
Apparently depression can also cause one to loose intrest or enjoyment or i guess "passion" from their hobbies as well.

Yeah i will never stop loving music but i guess when you get older you dont really go to piss ups and parties much anymore. Me and my friends always did that and would of course play music all night and we would all love to show off our new cds and exchange music.
Make each other mixed tapes n cds and that.
I guess i dont cruise around in cars as much eitehr so thats another area i used to listen to music alot in.
And when i was a stoner i could just chill in listen to music all the time. Or even play music while we played video games but i prefer the game volume now.

I think you'll find that when you get older you wont lose your love for music but your taste in music will at least to some extent change.

I used to sing all the time then I heard myself from a recording and it sounds just as ugly as my face. So I've been dead quiet ever since.
